Rowan Atkinson, the British comedian famed for Mr. Bean, Blackadder and Not the Nine O'Clock News, wrecked one of the 106 McLaren F1 supercars in the world last Thursday (Aug. 4, 2011.) Atkinson had relatively minor injuries after what appears to be an horrific accident. Atkinson is an accomplished driver and had put 37,000 miles on this car over 14 years. The F1 may be our favorite car, period. It is drop dead gorgeous and competitors still struggle to go faster 20 years after it was produced. Atkinson is said to be sending the car back to the McLaren factory for rebuilding. USA Today reports that an F1 sold in 2008 for $4 million dollars.
