Bentley Continental GT Will Give You An Eargasm With Its Bang & Olufsen Audio

Bentley is offering Bang & Olusfen’s new high-end Beosonic audio interface in the new Continental GT, a first for the automotive world.

The new Bang & Olufsen Beosonic is designed to shape the sound in the car around you via a simple and intuitive one-touch user interface, enabling Bentley’s customers to create “an entirely tailored, bespoke audio experience”.

The high-end interface offers four distinct audio spaces: Bright, Energetic, Warm and Relaxed. The driver can adjust the soundtuning of each space through the haptic touchscreen display of the infotainment system.

The Bentley Continental GT’s Bang & Olufsen sound system has been developed in close collaboration between the British car maker and Harman International. The system itself features 16 active loudspeakers and a 1500-watt BeoCore DSP amplifier that ensures a high-quality sound.

Customers who will opt for the new sound system will also benefit from the iconic design of the speaker grilles. Finished in aluminum and featuring holes drilled in variable sizes and angles, the B&O speaker grilles feature a uniquely-designed Fibonacci hole pattern.

But wait, there’s more; the holes in the speaker grilles also feature LED illumination, which welcomes the driver when the system is turned on. A B&O logo debossed into the leather next to the grilles completes the unique speaker design.

The new Continental GT also features laminated acoustic glass windscreen and side windows that reduce exterior noise, ensuring that the driver and passenger will enjoy an optimal audio experience.

“The BeoSonic user interface allows you to change equalization based on your mood, which means fewer inputs are required to achieve their desired audio experience,” said Ashley Blakemore, Head of Infotainment and Audio at Bentley. “When changing between sound spaces, you will instantly hear the difference: you can change from a very precise and narrow sound to a much more open and surrounding listening experience.”

      Beautiful is so general. That interior is out of this world. Luxurious, retro and modern all mixed together. No car company can do it as spectacular as Bentley.

        You are correct! This is the most amazing, ethereal, heavenly, piece of art interior ever made in a modern luxury car! Must be pure ecstasy to sit in it.. just got a woodie just imaging what it is to feel the finely crafted seats and the touch of every button, piece of metal..

          Have you sat in one or drove it? I’d like to know how was the comfort and feel of luxury in the Mulsanne?

    I’d rather let the exhaust note do it instead.

    Typically “Reality” isn’t one of the choices for the sound field… I guess Harman still doesn’t know quite the meaning of that.

  • THE LED’S ARE A BIT CHEESY.
