The year 2012 wasn’t entirely a lost cause for Linda and Vince McMahon, the first couple of wrestling, whose idea of his and hers presents is not monogrammed towels.

On her way to spending $100 million of her personal fortune on consecutive bids for the U.S. Senate in Connecticut that fell short, the WWE matriarch traded up for a 2012 Bentley Continental Coupe in glacier white, according to newly-released tax rolls from McMahon’s hometown of Greenwich.

McMahon’s deluxe ride is valued at $189,900 by the Greenwich assessor’s office, which typically relies on the National Automobile Dealers Association for appraisal information.

The Republican actually registered the 2012 Bentley model in October of 2011 with the town.

Vince McMahon registered his own 2012 Bentley Continental Coupe — this one in grey -in February of 2012. It is also valued at $189,900.

By Greenwich standards, the matching Bentleys are not the most opulent or most expensive cars on the town’s motor vehicle rolls, however.

They ranked 96th and 97th in terms of value.

A 2003 Ferrari Enzo owned by fashionista Tommy Hilfiger topped the list, with a value of $969,400.

    Can someone please explain to me why even internet space, let alone newspaper space, is being taken up by this?

    Linda McMahon is a VERY rich woman. She’s earned the right to be a rich woman. I know Obama’s trying to make it illegal, but as of now, being successful and having a lot of money is NOT against the law.

    How is it ANYONE’S business what car she drives? How is it anyone’s business WHAT she does with HER money?

    I would write just one final thing…Linda McMahon is no longer running for office. It’s enough already. What’s next? Rummaging through her garbage to see what kind of Mayonnaise she’s using?

    With all the crap going on in this state to spend time…nevermind…
