JC made fun of Mr Bean in one of his articles on Honda cars.. He said Hondas are owned by old people and says he saw Mr Bean driving an NSX

Just the mention of Mr. Bean (in that intentional Baritone) has me in splits......man this guy is great. He can be funny without silly dialouges just plain silly expressions & behaviour.........His car in the TV show is the little ramshackle Mini & in real life.......WOW

Cheers

Just came back from Mr Bean's Holiday. Its heartening to see 2 well maintained pristine Cooper Minis. For Mr. Bean's fans (like me) recommend the movie - its in the usual slapstick grunting tone. After all this movie is said to be Mr. Bean - the character's, swansong

Watched it 3 times already now, cant get enough of it. In my view its better than even the first one (Bean the movie 1).
Max Baldry has also done a good job too.

Mr.Bean's Holiday is a very boring film. I just could'nt believe that it's the same Mr. Bean from the hilarious Mr.Bean TV series.
however a few scenes like the one in which he and the kid try to make money through a street performance are cool!!

ANYWAYS, that's a great collection of cars.

ANYWAYS, that's a great and unexpected car collection by Mr.Atkinson.

Default Mr.Bean and his Cars

Not sure if this topic has already been to discussions here.

Mr.Bean (Rowan Atkinson) is a hard core car lover, see the list from wiki,

Atkinson's car collection is dominated by Aston Martins, including the DB7 Vantage used in Johnny English. His Aston Martin V8 Zagato, featuring a novelty registration plate, was driven by his character Ron Anderson in the film The Tall Guy. Atkinson was cited for speeding in the car, just as Jeff Goldblum's character was in the movie. He also received a driving ban as a result of the incident.[13] He also races in his V8 Zagato, from which he escaped unhurt after crashing it into a barrier at an Aston Martin Owners Club event in Croft Circuit in 2001. He is reported to have placed an advanced order for a rmorgan.ca Aero Max, which costs 110,000.

Atkinson has raced in other cars, including a Renault 5 GT Turbo for two seasons for its one make series. He owns one McLaren F1, which was involved in an accident with an Austin Metro.[14] Other cars he owns include an Audi A8,[15] and a Honda Civic Hybrid[16].

I've read in some magazine that he is one among the 10 richest Englishmen! It was also written that he has the largest collection of Mercedes in England! Is it true?
