Mr Bean not to be put off driving sports car

Rowan Atkinson the famous man behind the Mr Bean actor has revealed to the public that he will not be put off after his recent supercar crash where he received a broken shoulder; however it hasn’t managed to dampen his love of fast cars. The now 56 year old lost control of the super McLaren F1 supercar, while driving in Cambridgeshire causing the car to spin out of control and hit into a tree, he was then taken to hospital and later was told he had broke his shoulder.

The newspapers were too quick to get on to the story and it seemed Rowan had in fact been put off driving sports cars anymore; however it has been revealed that all of that was simply nonsense. He has spoken out in a recent interview with the BBC’s Newsbeat programme; Atkinson has described the car accident as simply a misjudgement and that it has taught him a lesson about understanding the limitations of his car. The comedian and funny guy is well on road to recovery with his fractured shoulder almost completely healed. 

 The McLaren F1 sports car is now being repaired for the star and once the vehicle is back to normal Atkinson will not hesitate to jump back into the vehicle as normal, he said he can’t wait to get behind the wheel again and hit the open road. The sports car is one of Atkinson’s pride and joys and is a rare model; in fact only 65 of the cars of its kind have been built between 1993-1998 it boasts a top speed of 240mph and has a price tag of £200,000.

£20 Million Car Auction

Over £20 million in classic and custom vehicles were sold at the Barrett Jackson auto auction held in Las Vegas last week, the company had reported on Wednesday. Topping the sales was a 1964 Ford Fairline and sold for over £500,000 also with that was a bunch of sports car which were also selling in the £100,000 mark. The final tally did beat last year with that almost selling £16 million but did fall short of the massive 2008, £23 million and that was spent. Attendance was nearly 60,000 the highest number in the auctions year runs in Las Vegas. A record 580 vehicles were sold at the three day event and the owner described it as being a success.

The facts were stated that only 3 percent of the winning bids that met the reserve did not go through, it had a 97% winning rate. Last year a £500,000 bid on an owner Bugatti Veyron and he turned the offer down deciding he would not sell the vehicle.

They raised almost 1.3 million pound in charity funds, with the NASCAR owner splashing out £200,000 on Camaro. All in all, the entire event went fantastic and if it continues to make this kind of money for charity each year it is a great achievement.

Deal or no Deal Presenter Noel Edmunds travels with Midlands Limos

We have chauffeured many stars about in the past however this one of our proudest moments in our time in the limousine industry. Deal or no Deal star Noel Edmunds was travelling in a Midlands Limousine H2 Hummer, the hummer was for a Christmas program on Sky 1. It is a program where Noel gives something back to the community for people who have worked hard for other people’s sacrifices or for children who are less fortunate than others. The program is a real tear breaker so be prepared with your tissues at the ready.

Our H2 hummer was used by Noel for some young children and family who have always wanted to go the theme park Alton Towers, however their day was about to change dramatically as they didn’t know they would be travelling in a massive H2 hummer courtesy of ourselves. We took this as a great honour and a privilege to help people enjoy their selves who maybe don’t get to as much as we do. The kids loved every single moment of it and couldn’t believe how cool the actual limousine was, we was very happy that the kids enjoyed it and it was fantastic to be part of such an amazing movement.

The pictures below are shown of Noel and the kids who travelled in our H2 to Alton Towers.
