The Phantom Thread Bristol 405 Saloon

Instead of a Rolls Royce or Bentley, Phantom Thread producers put wealthy and successful lead character Reynolds Woodcock in a Bristol 405 sedan.

The recently released period-piece drama Phantom Thread is a noteworthy film for many reasons. For starters, it was written and directed by celebrated auteur Paul Thomas Anderson, it’s been nominated for six Academy Awards (including Best Picture and Actor in a Leading Role), and it stars Oscar-winning thespian Daniel Day-Lewis in what Day-Lewis himself says is his last acting performance. For car enthusiasts, however, the film’s Bristol 405 four-door saloon is the real star.

1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS

As a contemporary homage to the classic muscle car, the 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS followed the letter of the law, if not the spirit. The Monte SS was indeed a midsize car crammed full of big-car engine, but by ’87, “big-car” engines just weren’t what they used to be.

2019 Hyundai Veloster

2018 Detroit Auto Show, NAIASDETROIT—Hyundai took the wraps off a redesigned version of its unconventional compact sporty hatchback at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The 2019 Veloster retains the model’s novel asymmetrical door configuration (one on the driver’s side, and two on the passenger side for easier access to the back seat), but gains all-new styling inside and out, updated powertrains, and a host of new technology features. Hyundai is also using the new Veloster as the inaugural vehicle of a planned “N” lineup of high-performance Hyundais.
