Philips RacingVision is Auto Express 2017 Headlamp of the Year
Philips RacingVision headlight bulbs, developed by Lumileds, has been named Auto Express Headlamp Bulb of the Year.
Philips RacingVision headlight bulbs provide up to 150 per cent brighter light than the minimum legal standard, for better visibility and greater contrast. They are probably the strongest legal halogen lamp ever manufactured, says the company.
Drivers regularly find themselves in challenging conditions—from driving at night to winter conditions to poorly lit country roads. Faced with unexpected danger, reaction time is everything.
Even split seconds can make a crucial difference to drivers’ safety. The superior beam performance of the Philips RacingVision headlamp helps drivers identify dangerous situations faster and stay in control of their vehicle – whatever road conditions they are facing.
The specific colour temperature (up to 3,500 Kelvin) of Philips RacingVision also help drivers’ eyes focus better. They therefore have greater control and confidence, and can relax into a safer and more enjoyable journey.
“Our Philips RacingVision headlamps are engineered for performance and safety through visibility, two characteristics that are dear to drivers who are passionate about their car and taking it on the road,” said Kevin Gourven, product manager lamps and LEDs at Lumileds “They are looking for the highest quality so that they can maximise safety and the comfort of the performance driving experience, for themselves as much as for their passengers and other road users.”
Best-in-class like all Philips products, RacingVision bulbs are among the brightest, thanks to their optimized high precision filament geometry, up to thirteen bars of high pressure gas filled, high quality anti-UV-quartz-glass with chrome coating. They set a new standard in automotive lighting, says Lumileds.
