Video: Mr. Bean’s high performance holiday, Bugatti Veyron vs. McLaren F1

You may be familiar with the quirky English comedian Rowan Atkinson from his hilarious Mr. Bean sketches, but what you may not know is that the silent comic is also a fanatic of high performance vehicles and even has a McLaren F1 super car of his own that he takes out whenever he wants the Formula One experience without having to worry about getting wet. However as good as Gordon Murray’s three passenger 12 cylinder design once was, there is now a new halo car in the sports car market, the 1001 HP Bugatti Veyron, and what better way to get familiar with the French exotic then spending a day at the Silverstone Circuit for a parallel comparison at speed on the track.

Some say that he is like Jay Leno in his country. A good and silent collector of classics and supercars. I really am interested in looking at his collection. This is by far the 3rd car that I know he has. I wonder if he has some Bean mini’s in his garage though.

I didn’t know that mr Bean(Rowan Atkinson) has his own super car, I though he only has a Mini Cooper. I wonder why they haven’t replace his Old Mini Cooper his movies.
