Rowan Atkinson is known for being a very keen motoring enthusiast. He has owned some very impressive cars over the years, the most famous being his purple McLaren F1 which he crashed at one point.

However, now he has put his Ford Falcon race car up for sale at the next Silverstone Auctions and it sure isn't one to miss out on.

He has owned it since 2006 and the car has made a few appearances at various events during the last 15 years including Snetterton, Chimay in Belgium, the Silverstone Classic and of course the Goodwood Revival Meeting.

Always professionally prepared and run for him by the very best teams, the car comes to the auction complete with a comprehensive history file detailing all the work, upgrades and maintenance that the Falcon has received during that time.

This mighty V8-powered 60s touring car is possibly one of the coolest looking things we have seen at an auction for a while, plus if you buy it, you'll be able to say you own Mr Bean's old car.

Is this something you'd buy for a guide price of £55,000 - £65,000?

  • Atkinson is one of us. A motorhead through and through. Also he crashed his F1 twice. 1999 when he bumped into a Rover Metro and in 2013 when he smashed it up, and cost him 900,000 pounds to fix.

    • That’s how you know he is an enthusiast instead of replacing it or scrapping it he had it repaired, Legend.

    • Not only am I a fan of Rowan Atkinson in his roles as Mr. Bean and Blackadder, but also he is the best celebrity car enthusiast by a longshot.
