Bang & Olufsen has announced the launch of a limited edition version of the Beosound Explore portable speaker in collaboration with brand ambassador and two-time F1 World Champion Fernando Alonso.
This special series Beosound Explore comes with a dark blue aluminum coating, a light blue fabric interior and a dark blue carabiner. The speaker's blue tones contrast with the striking neon red fabric strap detail. Additionally, the speaker comes with Fernando Alonso's signature, laser-etched on the top edge of the speaker, and the production number laser-etched on the pin of the speaker's strap for a personal feel.
“We are pleased to be working with Fernando for the third time and to offer our customers another of our award-winning products in a special limited edition edition,” said Michael Henriksson, Vice President of Product Marketing at Bang & Olufsen. "It's been 20 years since Alonso made his Formula 1 podium debut in Malaysia in 2003, we've followed his career and his shared passion for music and performance makes him and Bang & Olufsen a perfect match."
Alonso is a name that recently celebrated his 100th podium and only six drivers in the history of Formula 1 have achieved this historic milestone. As a two-time F1 World Champion, two-time 24 Hours of Le Mans Champion and 24 Hours of Daytona Champion, Alonso's legacy of continuous improvement, longevity in his sport and rich history shares Bang & Olufsen's legacy of championing excellence.
Prior to the announcement of a limited edition version of the Beosound Explore, Bang & Olufsen and Fernando Alonso's relationship has blossomed in recent years. As brand ambassador, Bang & Olufsen supported and celebrated Alonso's achievements off and on the track.
"I always use music as an accompaniment to maximum performance and mental preparation for the race. Music stabilizes my mental state before getting in the car, while providing adrenaline for the challenge ahead. Working with Bang & Olufsen on this collaboration has been a proud moment for me." says Alonso.
