E31 owner Andrew Ng of Vancouver, British Columbia (whom I have known since I
purchased my 1991 Calypso 850i ten years ago) sent me an interesting photograph of
an upmarket RV that contained a Bugatti Veyron that parked on a platform that slid out
from under the RV. Andrew made some “quick & loose” (just for fun) modifications to the photograph, adding his own Mauritius Blue E31 and matching the color of the RV to
his car. See the results below. Thank you, Andrew!
