This £1.2 million motorhome has been dubbed the world’s ultimate camper van – thanks to a secret compartment which stores a supercar.

The Volkner Mobil Performance Bus is a 40ft long palace on wheels which offers total luxury for the more discerning camper.

It features a hidden ‘garage’ tucked between the front and rear wheels which is designed to accommodate a low-slung sports car such as a Ferrari or Lamborghini.

This makes the Performance Bus the ultimate touring vehicle for petrolheads rock stars like Eric Clapton and Rod Stewart.

The vehicle has been wowing crowds at this month’s Caravan Salon in Dusseldorf, Germany.
