The Autocar awards return on the 15 May 2018 at the Silverstone Wing

Welcome to the annual Autocar Awards, where once again we will be recognising the industry’s most significant cars and high achievers. More than 250 top-level, influential individuals from major car manufacturers from the UK and around the world will be in attendance...



This prestigious event will once again be held in the impressive Silverstone Wing to celebrate the cars that have achieved a coveted Autocar five-star road test verdict over the past 12 months.

Other accolades on the night will include the best driver’s car, readers’ champion, used car hero, design, engineering and motorsport heroes and the greatest innovation of the year, not to mention the revered Issigonis Trophy and Sturmey Award.

The winner of the Issigonis Trophy will be the person who has made the most outstanding contribution to the automotive industry over the past year, while the Sturmey Award will celebrate innovation and excellence in the motoring industry. In addition, the UK’s outstanding car company leaders and the most significant game-changing cars will be heralded.

There is no other event for the motor industry with the same standing or respect as the Autocar Awards. Attending last year’s event were high-ranking representatives from the likes of Ariel, Aston Martin, Audi, Citroën, Ferrari, Ford, Hyundai, Peugeot, Mazda, McLaren, and Renault witnessed the honouring of the best cars and talent that the automotive industry has to offer.
