No idea what they get by posting the Hyundai tag there. May be, they hate Jeremy or Top Gear or something.

Although this could give a good ego boost to Hyundai owners here, hehe.

Maybe he rebadged it to a Hyundai to annouce the dismal quality of a Bentley. They arent exactly trouble-free.

Or he lost a bet?

You've gotta be kidding me!!!! That's bloody hilarious & not to mention Stupid! Still can't stop laughing though!!!

P.S. Seems to me that it's the Hyundai dealers personal car which he has done up or down depending on how you view it!, brand loyalty you see!! Also looks like he's the "Fresh Prince of Bel Air"

There is NO Hyundai of Bel Air! ITs a fake license plate holder whose address puts you in the smack dab middle of Mansion central where you will not find anything south of 100K when it comes to cars. This is a rich person with a very twisted and sarcastic sense of humor!

I've seen brand upgrading when it comes to modding cars, but this just takes the cake. I'm heavily appreciating the humour!

Intriguing to say the least! Ususally Id suppose he'd have done it not to attract attention...but this just draws more. Yeah, I think he lost a bet.
