The Golden Steering Wheel, what is it, how does it work? Here you will find all the answers to the most important questions about Europe's most coveted automobile award.

Drivers often find the autumn abominable; Car makers find it super. Because then is the time of the decision: about the Golden Steering Wheel, the most important Autopreis of Europe! This year the Golden Steering Wheel, once invented by Axel Springer himself, will be presented for the 42nd time. No wonder that he has been nicknamed "Auto-Oscar" for years. The Golden Steering Wheel has been awarded since 1976, by BILD am SONNTAG until 2009, since then by AUTO BILD and BILD am SONNTAG. Since then, the Golden Steering Wheel has been awarded together. The first and most important decisions for the Golden Steering Wheel will be taken by Europe's largest jury, and you are, dear readers. There are 42 models divided into the five classes: small and compact cars, small SUVs, large SUVs, medium and upper class cars and sports cars. In each class you choose your favorite (only one class per class). Since there are only four candidates in the "middle and upper class" category this year, they are automatically qualified for the next round (test runs in Balocco). Nevertheless, we are interested in which of the four candidates is your favorite. How do the classes come about? The prize should be awarded not only transparently and thus comprehensibly, but also fair! In order to evaluate as many new cars as possible, the classes have changed since the founding year 1976. Classes in which there are few novelties are replaced by others. And again and again, new ones are added.What happens after you have chosen? After all the votes are evaluated, the 20 participants of the final are determined. These will then be held in Balocco (Italy) at the beginning of October and will be evaluated by an expert jury in a well-defined test procedure. In the end the candidates win with the most points. Is only chosen in Germany? No, the Golden Steering Wheel is a European prize. Readers in more than 20 other European countries also agree. Their voices are calculated according to a key, which is inter alia. At the end of November, at a festive gala in the Axel Springer Verlagshaus in Berlin. This year, too, Barbara Schneberger (42) will host the award. Who has been producing the Golden Steering Wheel Trophies? For more than 25 years, Jrgen Richter has been producing the most popular drop of the autowelt by hand in his Berlin workshop. He needs a steering wheel for four days. The steering wheel is made of gilded brass and has a diameter of exactly 14.7 centimeters. It is indeed unkauflich but has a value of 1100 euros. And weighs a total of 3.8 kilograms.
