It has been confirmed that Blackadder actor Rowan Atkinson has recently sold his beautiful famous McLaren F1 for a staggering £8,000,000. This sale, if you must know is a £7,360,000 profit over the original £640k when the car was new back in 1997. The reason for the escalation in the enormous value of the F1 is due to the fact of its rarity and that examples for sale are far and few between.
The car was for sale at the prestigious car dealer Taylor & Crawley who predominately deal in high end classic race and road cars. David Clark, the owner of the dealer confirmed the car has been sold to a buyer based in the UK. Therefore all hope is not lost that we will again see this car out on the roads of the UK.
