Either Ralph Lauren has finally bought this Bugatti Type 40 (ch.no. 40575) from Donald Koleman or he borrows it from him pretty regularly. But there's another question: Why has the BUGATTI badge been airbrushed off radiator grille? Anyone?

I see ads (not necessarily Ralph Lauren's) do that from time to time. In spite of the use of the car as a prop, I suspect the Ralph Lauren people ultimately want to draw attention to the clothes, not the car. Removing non-essential branding or badging helps to achieve that goal.

That's my guess, anyway.
