With effect from 1 January 2018, Stephan Winkelmann will be the new President of Bugatti Automobiles. He is taking over from Wolfgang Durheimer, who will then have held this position for five years in total and is retiring at his own request at the end of 2017.
Matthias Muller, Chairman of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Group, said: “I accept Wolfgang Durheimer’s wish to retire. I sincerely thank him for the outstanding work he has done in various positions in the Volkswagen Group over 18 years. At Bugatti, he successfully completed the era of the Veyron and, with the development of the Chiron, he has opened an exciting new chapter for the brand.”
