Mr. Bean’s $1.4M Car Repair

I was tempted to think that this was a joke, that Mr. Bean, ol’ Rowan Atkinson, tricked his insurance company into paying $1.4 million to fix a car he paid a warm 1 mill for in 1997.

His maroon McLaren F1 was severely damaged after Edmund Blackadder hit a slippery patch. He is lucky that the car is highly collectable. I just saw one in the television show Person of Interest, as the car of a billionaire techie.

Still, I will not be investing in one. I have to think of gas mileage on my long commute.

  1. The kind of picture you need to keep the mosquitos out of the house!

    I loved the Black Adder series, a great timeless collection.

    Yours Aye.

  2. Imagine this stuck in traffic, you see this hot car next to you, you look over to see who is driving that awesome machine and you see, the picture you posted.

    Could you keep a straight face and just drive away?

  3. I had to add my five cents worth; the guy is funny and hilarious….who doesn’t just look at him and not crack up???….he is pretty silly though…some British comedians are just that way…..I also liked all the Monty Python crew way back when…Eric Idle, John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin …I always found them much the same….I couldn’t look at anything they did without losing my composure ….but all these guys were university educated and that’s how they met ….I don’t know about Rowan Atkinson however…I used to like Peter Cooke and Dudley Moore as well…..k
