Car News: Rowan Atkinson aka Mr. Bean crash his Mclaren F1 for the second time


Comedian Rowan Atkinson has crashed the £650,000 sports car he bought to celebrate the success of his movie in the role of Mr Bean.
The front of the McLaren F1 supercar was wrecked in the collision with the rear of a Rover Metro in Lancashire at 1400 BST on Monday.

The driver of the Metro, Margaret Greenhalgh, suffered minor whiplash injuries, while Mr Atkinson was unhurt in the accident on the A6 at Forton.
The star, also famous for his role as Edmund Blackadder in the eponymous TV series, reportedly asked police not to name him following the accident in the 230mph supercar.
Mr Atkinson's brother Rodney said the star - whose Mr Bean character drives a Mini rather than a high-powered sports car - was "an absolute fanatic" about cars.
He said: "The faster they are the more he likes them. He's a very good driver, there's no doubt about it, and this is the first accident I have heard of involving him.
"Obviously, we are relieved he is uninjured."
Mr Atkinson's sports car, which can travel from 0-60mph in just 3.2 seconds, is not the only prestige vehicle he has owned.
He has also driven Aston Martins, Rolls Royces, Lancias and Mercedes.
The McLaren car was delivered to his Oxfordshire home in 1997.
