Bowers & Wilkins Audio System (McLaren 570GT) hands-on review

Can a supercar have a super audio system? We took the McLaren 570GT and its B&W audio system for a spin to find out…

Given the McLaren 570GT starts at £154,000/$231,000, the B&W Audio System looks like a no-brainer on paper. Costing just £1840/$2760, it features 12 speakers, 14 channels of Harman Class D amplification and 1280W of power. In comparison, the standard system that comes with the car uses eight speakers and 240W of Class AB amplification.

The B&W set-up is tuned by the same team responsible for the company’s 800 Series Diamond speakers and uses a fair amount of similar technology as a result. Highlights include the Nautilus aluminum tweeters, ‘tweeter on top’ technology and B&W’s trademark Kevlar driver units.
