Dan Prosser and Andrew Frankel are joined by Dr Ulrich Eichhorn, a contributor to The Intercooler's digital car magazine and a heavy-hitter in automotive engineering circles. Dr Eichhorn was instrumental in the development of the game-changing Ford Focus, after which he was poached by Dr Ferdinand Piëch at the Volkswagen Group. There he led the development of a W12-powered supercar that inspired the Bugatti Veyron before joining Bentley to become its chief engineer. During a long stint in Crewe he oversaw the development of a number of new models that underpinned Bentley's astonishing transformation. Later he became the most senior engineer in the entire Volkswagen Group.

This is the fascinating story of one of the most decorated careers in modern automotive engineering, told by the man himself.
