in Vehicle

Actor Rowan Atkinson, who has got international fame as “Mr. Bean”, owns an estimated wealth of £65 million. One of his major interests is fast cars so the successful comedian spent much on a huge vintage and classic car collection that includes Aston Martins, Audi A8, Mercedes-Benz 500E, Bentley Mulsanne, Honda Civic Hybrid, Lancia Delta Integrale, Rolls Royces and McLaren F1.

Particularly, “Mr. Bean” has held a category C+E (formerly “Class 1”) lorry driving license and even written car reviews for British magazines like Car, Octane and Evo.

In 1991, Rowan Atkinson appeared in a series of sketches named “Driven Man”, which featured him driving around London and trying to solve his car-fetish.

Now, let's take a look at some of his car collection.

One interesting thing is that “Mr. Bean” owns numerous cars, but he has never bought a Porsche. “I have a problem with Porsches. They're wonderful cars, but I know I could never live with one. Somehow, the typical Porsche people — and I wish them no ill — are not, I feel, my kind of people. I don't go around saying that Porsches are a pile of dung, but I do know that psychologically I couldn't handle owning one.” he explained.
