The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has emerged as overall winner in the contest, which is judged by a panel of 23 female motoring experts, including South African journalist Charleen Clarke.The judges also declared numerous category winners:SUPREME WINNERMercedes-Benz S-ClassFAMILY CARAudi A3SPORTS CARAudi S3ECONOMY CARHonda Jazz/FitLUXURY CARMercedes-Benz S-ClassGREEN CARTesla Model SSUVRange Rover SportRUNNERS UPThe Audi A8 narrowly lost to the S-Class, by just one tenth of a point, in the Luxury Car category and the big Audi also came second overall in the competition, ahead of the Tesla Model S.The WWCOTY statement did not list runners up for every category, but did mention that the VW Golf Variant/Sportsvan narrowly lost out to the Audi A3 saloon in the Family Car award, while the BMW M4 and Porsche Macan were also cursed with narrow defeats in the respective Sports Car and SUV segments. The Budget and Green Car segments were reportedly won with more comfortable margins.JUDGING CRITERIAThe judging panel is expected to vote on ten different criteria, which remain the same regardless of category. Some of these include design and function, style and sex appeal, comfort, storage, drive quality and value for money.The secret ballot is collated and analysed by the New Zealand office of international accountancy firm Grant Thornton, which commented that this year's voting was the closest seen in the contest's five-year history.DREAM CARAs a "fun exercise" on the side, the judges were also asked to nominate their dream car, the one that they would most aspire to own. Jaguar's F-Type took top honours here.

These babes obviously have rich husbands and live in snazzy suburbs--I mean the finest inner cities!--and know lots of Mercedes salesmen.

Wonder what a typical run of 1000 women-on-the-street would nominate? Something tells me it would far away from this list of the shop-til-you-drop/1000 pair of shoes crowd. But that's just a wild guess.
