Chance to buy Mr Bean’s Land Rover

Chance to buy Mr Bean’s Land Rover

Rowan Atkinson selling Defender

How good is Rowan Atkinson? He’s brilliant as Mr Bean, and Blackadder is up there with the best of British comedies!

The star is also a real car buff and has an extensive collection of different vehicles.

Now he’s about to make room for something new by selling off this relatively new addition to the collection – his limited edition 2015 Land Rover Defender 90 Heritage.

Set to go to auction at the end of July in the UK, the special ‘Heritage’ edition is one of only 400 examples made as part of the Land Rover Defender Celebration Line.

That was a special run of Defenders built to mark the end of UK production of the legendary off-roader.

Silverstone Auctions tell us the vehicle combines nostalgic design cues with modern creature comforts and features:

  • Iconic Grasmere Green metallic paintwork
  • Alaska White roof
  • Heritage style grille
  • Headlamp surrounds
  • Silver front bumpers
  • Heavy-duty steel wheels

And it also comes with those distinctive HUE 166 graphics in tribute to the first ever pre-production Series I Land Rover from 1947.
