Bentley Motors has collaborated with specialist audio brands Naim and Focal on two unique audio speakers, inspired by Bentley’s EX 100 GT Concept Car and designed for music lovers. Bentley and Naim Audio have been partners since 2008, producing the “ultimate” in-car audio experience for the luxury marque’s fleet of vehicles.

Together with Naim sister-brand, headphone specialists Focal, the brands have produced two exclusive new products: the Naim Mu-So for Bentley Special Edition wireless speaker system, and Focal for Bentley Radiance headphones. Both products have design cues taken from the latest Bentley styling, from copper colour accents that reference interior design, and exterior styling aspects of the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar and design DNA of the award-winning EXP 100 GT electric concept car. A recurring lattice pattern is inspired by diamond seat quilting and headlight designs.

"Bentley Motors has some of the mosty demanding and passionate customers in world, and so everything we do is about enhancing their experience beyond just their vehicle alone," said Chris Cooke, Bentley's head of product design. "We have partnered with Naim for 12 years and now, with Focal as well, we can produce partnerships that start from a shared ethos and passion." >>

The limited edition design of Naim’s award-winning Mu-So second generation speakers offer authentic audio expertise with the latest music-streaming technology, and the ability to transform television sound. It is the first edition to feature a wooden finish, crafted from sustainable African hardwood. 

The Focal for Bentley Radiance Headphones feature earcups made from Pittards gloving leather for comfort, featuring high-quality audio components and are tuned to share the acclaimed sonic signature of the Mu-So. They come with a bespoke carry case. 

Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition (RRP £1,799) and Focal for Bentley Radiance (£1,199) will be available to purchase from mid-October from selected Focal and Naim retailers.
