Our mission: create an exceptional sound system for a class-leading sports car. A vision shared by both brands to deliver unadulterated sound, bringing a new level of sound immersion to the 540C, 570S Coupé and Spider, and 570GT.
The Ultimate Series, a family of the world’s most uncompromising supercars. The Bowers & Wilkins audio system was first available in this Series with the iconic McLaren Senna.
The McLaren Sports Series audio system features Tweeter-on-Top: an audio design feature usually found only in high-end loudspeakers, including Bowers & Wilkins award-winning 800 Series Diamond.
Advanced speaker cone technology
All our McLaren audio systems the speaker cones use advanced materials such as aramid fibre and Rohacell® – materials originally developed by Bowers & Wilkins for its award winning hi-fi loudspeakers.
The tweeters in all of the Bowers & Wilkins sound systems for McLaren feature Nautilus diffusers: spiraling channels that dissipate reflected sound waves that emanate from the rear of the drive unit.
The two companies work together closely to create audio systems that are an integral part of the cabin architecture, with speakers placed in optimal locations, ensuring maximised acoustic performance.
