Chances are, when you think of Bentley, you think of something like this: That, of course, is the Bentley Mulsanne Speed, shown here at the 2015 North American International Auto Show.

What you probably don’t think about when you think of Bentley is something like this:
Yes, a sofa.
However, you would be wrong.
That is the Winchester. It is part of the “Bentley Home” collection.
In addition to the new sofa, there are armchairs, consoles and beds.
The furniture was designed by architect Carlo Colombo. It is produced in collaboration with Luxury Living Group, a European furniture manufacturer.
The Mulsanne Speed, which goes from 0 to 60 mph in less than five seconds, will set you back at least $340,000.
The Winchester sofa, which goes from 0 to 60 mph only if being conveyed by something else, will set you back about $15,000.
So it is fair to say that when you think “Bentley” you should also think “wealthy.”
Hyundai's product onslaught continues with a new compact that's bigger, more stylish and more efficient than its predecessor. And its development cycle is faster than the competition.
A young(ish) guy that I’ve known for a number of years, a man who spent the better part of his career writing for auto buff books and who is a car racer on the side, mentioned to me that his wife has a used Lexus ES Hybrid.
Hyundai enters the American market with a new parallel hybrid system that uses lithium-polymer batteries and the same six-speed automatic found in non-hybrid versions of the 2011 Sonata.
