A KEY MOMENT -
WOLFGANG DÜRHEIMER ACCEPTS BENTLEY MOTORS LEADERSHIP AT DETROIT MOTOR SHOW
(Crewe and Detroit. 10 January, 2011) Wolfgang Dürheimer (52) prepared for his new role as the Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors at the Detroit Motor Show today when he accepted the keys to one of the company’s most revered cars – W.O. Bentley’s 1930 8-litre saloon which was his official company car.
The 8-litre, now owned by Bentley Motors and still driven to this day, represented the pinnacle of W.O. Bentley’s engineering career. Capable of reaching more than 100 mph, the 8-litre demonstrated W.O. Bentley’s ambition and ability to build a grand luxury car capable of surpassing every other leading manufacturer of the day. This ability to combine stirring performance with hand-crafted luxury has been at the heart of the Bentley experience ever since.
