Rowan Atkinson has been selling his McLaren F1

Rowan Atkinson crashed his McLaren F1 twice but succeeded in selling it for the price of £8million

yes, you heard it right! the famous actor Rowan Atkinson just sold his awesome McLaren F1 supercar for the price of £8.000.000 in one of Britain’s biggest car deals.
Rowan Atkinson bought his remarkable McLaren F1 in 1997 at the price of £640,000 & since than he crashed it twice. you may think that a thing like that would lower the price, but in fact the two crashes raised its value, taking a profit of £7,3.000.000 in Rowan’s pockets.
the McLaren F1 is one of only 64 ever built & Rowan put it on the car market with the help of Taylor & Crawley, a specialist car dealer owned by David Clark, the formerly director of McLaren.
the McLaren F1 is the fastest non-turbocharged car in the world, delivering 3.2 seconds at 0-62 mph. this super car also features a an engine bay lined with 25 g of gold foil.
in case you didn’t know, the famous actor owns a remarkable car collection with names like Jaguar Mk7, vintage Ford Falcon, Aston Martin DB2, Honda NSX, a 1939 BMW 328 and a Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe.
in the show ” Top Gear: Star in a reasonably priced car ” Rowan Atkinson delivered the second quickest time on the track, overcoming Formula 1 drivers that appeared on the show like Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel & others.
when asked about the McLaren F1 sale Rowan replied : ” I bought it for the quality of the thinking that went into its design, & now it has become a thing of value it is time for it to be enjoyed by someone else. ”
I am absolutely positive that Rowan is very happy regarding the sale & of course, the huge profit. also, it seems that this super car will stay in Britain : ” Everyone is very pleased with the sale. There was interest from around the world & it has gone to a British buyer who will drive it like Rowan did. ” – David Clark, formerly a director at McLaren.
