Bentley Motors today announces Luc Donckerwolke as its new Director of Design.  Mr Donckerwolke succeeds Dirk van Braeckel who moves to Volkswagen Group design directed by Walter de Silva.

Mr Donckerwolke joins Bentley from his role as Head of Advanced Design for Volkswagen Group. He began his career as an exterior designer at Audi in 1992 and has subsequently worked for a range of other Volkswagen group brands including Lamborghini, SEAT and Skoda.  His work at Lamborghini includes the award-winning designs of the Murcielago and Gallardo.

Walter de Silva said:

“Luc Donckerwolke brings a wealth of design talent to Bentley.  His extensive experience makes him the ideal person to take forward Bentley’s future design language, at a time when the company has significant plans for new models.”

“I would like to thank Dirk van Braeckel for the significant contribution he has made to Bentley.  He has overseen the evolution of the Bentley brand and the development of the new generation Continental family and the flagship Mulsanne.  I look forward to him joining the team at Volkswagen Group design.”
