For those seeking the ultimate acoustics in their Maserati Ghibli, the answer is the optional Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound system – the last word in sound perfection. Fifteen speakers, with mid-range drivers and rear woofers made from Kevlar®, have been strategically built into the car’s architecture, while a 1,280-watt amplifier ensures immersive sound for all on board. Advanced aluminium tweeters capture the faintest audio subtleties, while a rock-solid bass is delivered by Rohacell® - a stiff, highly resilient material often used in the construction of rockets and aircraft. The Bowers & Wilkins system is compatible with most disc formats and features a built-in USB connector for a smartphone, iPod or MP3 player. Alternatively, tracks can be streamed directly either via Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto®.
