Article by Anita Panait, on February 9, 2012

Bentley Motors Ltd. has appointed acclaimed designer David Hilton as its Head of Exterior Design. After spending more than a decade operating his design company, Hilton joins Bentley in the United Kingdom. He will report to Dirk van Braeckel, the company’s Director of Design and Styling. 

Hilton has experienced working with the world’s largest car manufacturers. His award-winning designs adorned vehicles of European and Japanese carmakers, helping them gain new buyers. He used to design vehicles for Ford in Detroit and Germany, and he was Ford Racing’s chief designer. He also worked for Mazda in Japan and VW Autolatina in Brazil.

“With such vast experience and creative design talent, David will be a huge asset to the team at Crewe,” said van Braeckel, adding that Hilton’s proven creative excellence will help Bentley build its current highly successful model line-up as well as enhance the appeal of its vehicles to customers worldwide.

Hilton noted that the company has a distinctive design language that reflects the history and heritage of the Brand but remains relevant to today’s high luxury customers. He added that he could help shape the design of the next generation of Bentleys. Bentley appointed Hilton in lieu of Raul Pires who joined VW’s Italdesign.
