"The four-door car is not dead."
Bentley still wants the shapely EXP 10 Speed 6 concept to see production, but a high-performance coupe-like crossover based on the Bentayga could come first.
Bentley CEO Wolfgang Durheimer says that if the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept reaches production, it could come with an EV powertrain and up to 500 horsepower.
Bugatti head Wolfgang Durheimer says the 450th and last Veyron will be at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It will mark the end of 10 years of production, 300 coupes, and 150 open-top versions of the engineering coup that redefined how much a supercar could do.
Between Audi, Porsche, Lamborghini, Bentley and Bugatti, the Volkswagen Group has no lack of prestige marques under its umbrella. And while some of these marques may produce models that compete against each o
Wolfgang Dürheimer is still in play, with Bentley Motors announcing that he will return to the Chairman and CEO slot of the English company and French division Bugatti on June 1, 2014. He'll probably remember those chairs from the last time he filled them, since he was Jonathon Ramsey
Audi could be getting even more diverse with its powertrains for the A6, A8 and Q7, moving beyond offering just gas- and diesel-powered models and adding plug-in hybrid variants of the three luxury vehicles. The report comes from Brandon Turkus
According to a report by Autocar, all we thought we knew of the in-development Audi supercar we might not actually know. A piece in Car and Driver, not even a month old, said the diesel-hybrid halo car was in the design stages, would get the engine from the R18 E-Tron Quattro and its
Before Wolfgang Dürheimer moves to Audi, he's still got a few jobs to finish as head of Bentley and Bugatti, one of them be
The Bentley 6.75-liter V8 engine dates all the way back to the 1960s where it originated from Rolls-Royce, but it would appear this powerful engine's days are numbered. Car and Driver recently had the chance to talk to Wolfgang Dürheimer, Bugatti and Bentley CEO, who discussed the f
Running a high-end automobile manufacturer like Bentley or Bugatti has got to be a dream job for most any business executive. And Wolfgang Dürheimer gets to run them both – but not for much longer, according to the latest reports coming in from trade publication Automotive News Europe.
In 2001, Bentley returned to Le Mans after an absence of more than 70 years with a machine known as the Speed 8 (pictured above), eventually winning the 24-hour race in 2003. Bentley hasn't been involved in motorsports since, although a new report indicates that could change soon.
Bugatti builds truly outrageous automobiles that stretch our perceptions of performance and personal wealth. The Veyron currently serves as the automaker's only ambassador into the world of high-speed and exotic engineering. Bugatti executives are looking to add a second steed to the stable, and we believe the Galibier sedan would make a good fit.
Sometimes, things just don't change. For example, the CEO of Bentley, Wolfgang Durheimer, has confirmed that the company will continue to offer 12-cylinder engines; so much so that they, "become one of the cornerstones" of Bentley. This should ease fears that the upcoming turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 would make extinct Bentley's infamous W12.
The crew at Motor Trend recently took the time to sit down with Wolfgang Durheimer, president and CEO of Bentley, for a chat about what we can expect to see from the ultra-luxury manufacturer in the near future. As we've heard, plans are already in the works for a Bentley SUV. Why sully the brand with a high-rider? As it turns out, carmakers need to make money, and while Bentley
Rumors of a Bentley SUV have been swirling for years. We reported on the possibility of a Crewe-built sport utility vehicle all the way back in 2007, and the same story seems to pop up every other year. This year, however, it seems that rumor has a little more meat backing it up.
