CREWE, UNITED KINGDOM – August 31, 2012: Signifying the official transfer of company leadership, Dr Wolfgang Schreiber accepts the keys to one of the company’s most revered cars – W.O. Bentley’s own company car – from the current Chairman and CEO, Mr Wolfgang Dürheimer.

Dr Schreiber joins the Crewe-based luxury car company on 1 September 2012 and, as part of his new leadership position as Chairman and Chief Executive, claims the keys to the 1930 8-litre saloon, still driven to this day. This car represented the pinnacle of founder W.O. Bentley’s engineering career, benchmark and class-leading, with an impressive top speed of over 100 mph and handcrafted luxury.

Dr Wolfgang Schreiber (54), an engineering graduate, joined the Volkswagen Group in 1984. He was made head of transmission and drivetrain development at the Volkswagen brand in 1996. His responsibility during that time included the development of transmission and drivetrain components for the Bentley Continental GT and Arnage. He moved to Bugatti Engineering in 2003 to take up the post of Technical Director and later Managing Director of the supersports car company over the next eight years. Schreiber became the member of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles responsible for development in September 2006 and was additionally made Speaker for the Board of Management in February 2010.
