Ceci n'est pas une Hyundai

The Hyundai that isn't

This is, in fact, a Bentley Continental GT with Hyundai badging. And not just on the deck lid, either: the familiar H also adorns the nose and the wheel hubs. What's more, "Hyundai of Bel Air," the ostensible dealer named on the plate frame, does not actually exist.

Precisely why someone would do this is something of a mystery. Autoblog (which has more pictures) speculates:

[W]e're thinking this guy lost a bet with his Ferrari buddies and was forced to transform his six-figure Conti into a Tiburon wannabe.

I suppose the next step would be to affix a HYBRID badge.
