Bentley offers $32,000 worth optional sound system on its Mulliner Batur sports coupe

Bentley has introduced a new sound system, called "Naim for Mulliner" for its Batur sports coupe. The new sound system offered on the limited edition coupe is said to be one of the most expensive new-car options, priced at around US$ 32,000.

The new optional sound system by Bentley claims to have 10,000 hours of development to produce the final audio output. The carmaker claims it is "the most exquisite in-car audio system ever created." The sound system comes with 20 speakers comprised of six tweeters, nine mid-range speakers, two woofers, two active bass transducers and one sub-woofer.

The sound system is positioned carefully all around the cabin, with extra strengthening at certain places to help prevent any sound distortion. The mid-range speakers come with a single-piece M-cone, patented by audio specialist Focal. Being a single-piece, the speaker is devoid of a dust cap, resulting in improved sound quality.

The $32,000 sound system will be offered as optional for all 18 customers of the Mulliner Batur. The super limited edition luxury sport coupe itself is priced at US$ 2 million. The Batur will be the last Bentley model to utilise the brand's iconic twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 engine.

Sheesh, $32000 sound system in a Bentley? We have a BHPian who has a more expensive sound system in a humble Kia Sonet (29-lakh rupee audio upgrade | Concert in a Kia Sonet | Installation done at Speedfreaks Chennai)

Interestingly, Bentley use Naim while the BHPian has used Focal speakers. Naim and Focal actually have a partnership, they are sort of equals.

Still cheap! BHPians tend to spend more on a Kia. When the sound from Focal's matter more than the sweet W12.

Not much experience with Focal, but I have a couple of Naim Uniti products, and these sound fab.

1.6%. Which of the 18 would even notice that rounding error of a price for an option, Bentley, you snoozebags.

If it really is that good, make it standard.
