The 750S is available in coupe and convertible versions. At the core of the supercar is a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, the same as one the 720S, but with lightweight pistons and new management system controls. It outputs 740 hp (750 ps/552 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque, enabling the machine to reach 62 mph (100 kph) in just 2.8 seconds, regardless of the body style. Other upgrades from its predecessor include external features, such as a new suspension. Regarding the electronics, the 750S comes with an improved infotainment system.
Bowers & Wilkins aims to create speakers that provide the most authentic reproduction of the original recording – the brand calls this philosophy "True Sound." The 750S' 14-Channel, Surround Sound System with a 1,400 W Class-D respects their philosophy, and it was developed in close collaboration with McLaren, as the two companies have combined their automotive and audio engineering expertise.
One critical update about the Bowers & Wilkins system is the inclusion of the company's proprietary Continuum Cone. The technology was initially developed by Bowers & Wilkins for the award-winning 800 Series Diamond loudspeaker. It features a composite construction that absorbs vibrations which generally affect the performance of a conventional drive unit.
Each car door houses a 100-mm (almost 4 inches) Continuum midrange speaker. They help offer a more open and neutral performance while also reproducing subtle details that wouldn't be heard on a conventional speaker.
Inside the dashboard, A-pillar, and the rear of the vehicle, five 25 mm (one inch) Nautilus Aluminum Double Dome tweeters are integrated. The Nautilus diffusers are spiraling channels that dissipate reflected sound waves emanating from the rear of the drive unit; the results are cleaner, natural-sounding high frequencies.
Bowers & Wilkins's signature central Tweeter-on-Top is also present, offering superior sound fidelity. Three 80-mm (3-inch) midrange speakers and two Rohacell bass drivers complete the setup, adding up to a total of 12 high-performance speakers.
