Main theme: We rented two super-rare (and super-expensive) cars: a Bentley Bentayga and a BMW M850i convertible. Combined, these two rides produce 1,073 hp and cost $342,255. We talk about driving them both, and what we'd buy instead.

Also, Peugeot and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) are talking merger. This has the potential to make the combined company among the largest car manufacturers in the world. Is the U.S. ready for the return of French cars?

Driven this week: 2020 Bentley Bentayga V8 and 2019 BMW M850i convertible
