Mr. Bean The Automotive Whiz

Mr. Bean The Automotive Whiz

Actor Rowan Atkinson, worldly renowned as Mr. Bean isn’t just all about movies. The 56 year-old owns an estimated wealth of 65 Million Dollars and is a known car enthusiast and races cars as a hobby. Atkinson, who holds a lorry driving license, has also written reviews for British magazines like Car, Octane and Evo. Here’s a look at his huge Vintage and Supercar collection.


  1. Aston Martin V8 Zagato

Aston Martin V8 Zagato, the endurance racing supercar was born from the creative minds of British manufacturer Aston Martin and the Italian coach-builder Zagato with only 101 units of the exclusive $8,00,000 supercar available for purchase.



  1. Audi A8

Performance and passenger comfort has been an asset of the Audi A8. This sophisticated Audi sedan, priced at $95,000 is power packed with style. Going 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds, nimble handling and a quattro all wheel drive, this car is surely a class apart in Atkinson’s collection.



  1. Mercedes-Benz 500E

This beautiful 1990 model from Atkinson’s garage has a 5.0L V8 engine and is know as the ‘Wolf in sheep’s clothing’. Because of its look, limited numbers, hand-built construction, and unique pedigree, the 500 E is already considered a “classic”, even within Mercedes-Benz.



  1. Bentley Mulsanne

The Mulsanne is a thoroughly modern full-size sedan that captures the essence of the Bentley marquee. The 6.75L V8 engine is capable of producing a prodigious 505 horsepower and goes 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds. Costing almost a million dollars, this cas is surely a keeper.


  1. Honda Civic Hybrid

Civic hybrid engine is Honda’s fourth-generation gas-electric power plant. Similar to the engines found in the rest of Honda’s lineup, the Civic Hybrid is equipped with an inline 4-cylinder engine featuring a three-stage version of the company’s VTEC (variable valve timing and lift electronic control) system. It’s called the i-VTEC (intelligent-VTEC) system.




  1. Lancia Delta Integrale

The Delta Integrale is a road car from Lancia, with all wheel drive, a front mounted engine and a Giugiaro-styled 5 door hatchback body style. The 2 litre engine is a turbocharged, double overhead camshaft, 4 cylinder unit that has an output of 207 bhp.



  1. McLaren F1

The F1 has an arrowhead seating position with the driver placed centrally, slightly ahead of the two passengers. It was the first production car to have a carbon-composite chassis, delivering great rigidity with light weight, making it Atkinson’s most prized possession.



And the last one in his collection, the true emperor of automobiles is the…


  1. Rolls Royce Phantom

The Phantom uses a unique chassis platform, body, interior, and retains traditional Rolls-Royce design cues. The car will automatically brake to a walking speed if a coach door remains open when driving off. This, by far, is the most luxurious car in Atkinson’s garage.


This proves that Rowan Atkinson is a true Automotive Whiz.
