An Expensive Day for “Mr Bean”!

Blackadder actor and Mr Bean star Rowan Atkinson incurred a record bill for his insurance company when his car collided with a tree in Cambridgeshire – the celebrity told the magazine “Classic and Sports Car” in a recent interview. His McLaren F1 (bought for £640,000 a few years earlier) looked like a wreck following the incident but fortunately the star managed to scramble clear before the vehicle caught fire: he suffered only a shoulder injury.

His insurers suffered to the tune of £910,000 (an apparent record) but had no “cunning plan” to avoid the hit; deciding that a repair job would be cheaper than a replacement!

A similar vehicle was sold for £3.5 million last year!
