Actor Rowan Atkinson Racks Up UK's Highest Repair Bill From 2011 McLaren F1 Crash

How much are you willing to pay to repair your ride after a crash? Actor Rowan Atkinson, AKA Mr. Bean, recently had repairs on his McLaren F1 (stemming from a 2011 crash) reach up to £910,000 ($1.44 million). That's a little more than the cost of the ride when he initially bought it.

Atkinson was doing 240mph in the supercar when the crash occurred, and due to the bespoke inner workings of the F1, it has taken a little more than a year to repair. The repairs have totaled to what is being considered the largest car insurance settlement in U.K. history. We're sure Mr. Bean will be making one of those famous faces, when he sees the dramatic hike in his insurance premiums.
