    Rowan Atkinson better known as Mr. Bean met with an accident in his McLaren F1 in Cambridgeshire, UK. As most might not know, Atkinson is a car and motorsport enthusiast and was recently crowned the fastest man on BBC’s show, Top Gear in the “star in the reasonably prized car” section.

    The accident took place when the car reportedly spun out of control and hit a tree and a signpost and then caught fire. The actor was apparently driving home from shooting his new movie ‘Johnny English Reborn’.

    The McLaren F1 which was bought for £650,000 14 years ago had met with an accident in 1999 too. This McLaren F1 in particular had done close to 60,000 km on the odo which is a lot for a supercar like McLaren. The McLaren has been sent to factory for restoration.
