He is not one of the 10 richest men for sure.
Soon after his success, he bought Mercedes 600 becuase of its cool gadgets...until he looked at his reflection in a shop window and he looked ridiculous.

He also had a Merc E500 for a while. He had a Ferrari but it nver moved him. The is a video called "The Driven Man" made by him about his fascination

This makes me believe that Mr Rowan Atkinson is not all that different from Mr Bean
Probably these two thread should be merged. Here is the link to other thread

Met his son during our Mongol rally in 2012. We met him and his friend first at a highway parking in Belgium. Later in Russian border to Mongolia. He and his friend were in a Fiat Panda, and was planning to drive back to UK from Mongolia ( that's adding another 7000 Km to the already run 15000 Kms )

Even though I remember he filling up the customs form and the name Atkinson, never I thought he was Rowan's kid. Later I only realized this when someone told me the secret during our Mongol rally finish line party.
