After seventeen years, 41,000 miles, two crashes, and one owner, it looks like Rowan Atkinson is preparing to part ways with his McLaren F1. There isn’t an actual online listing of the car yet so we don’t know the exact price tag but it’s somewhere around 8 million pounds or 12 million dollars.
That’s a hefty tag for a car that was once wrapped around a tree, but because of the rarity of the F1 — only 107 were ever produced and just 64 of them were actually street cars — it’s really no surprise.
While it’s hard to top a McLaren F1, Atkinson is a longtime car enthusiast so we’re sure he’ll add another car to his garage soon.

The Purrari is gone and the McLaren 650S is still in the garage, and now Deadmau5 is making more room for a brand new McLaren P1. We’re not sure if he’s actually keeping the 650S or not but either way, the P1 is on its way. Deadmau5 shared some screenshot photos of a P1 on his Instagram but it’s still not clear what his actual P1 will look like. We can tell you one thing though, it won’t be disappointing!
I wonder if he’ll pick people up for Uber in the new P1 like he did with his 650S…

I don’t know what it is about Deadmau5 but he’s a damn good marketer. Last time it was his parody of the Seinfeld Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, this time he decided to sign up as an Uber driver in his McLaren 650S and give rides in downtown Toronto.
While I know this was probably a stunt dreamed up by Uber, I still think it was great and hope to see Macklemore pull up the next time my Uber pulls up in Seattle!
Right after Deadmau5 returned from this years Gumball3000 with his Purrari, he listed it for sale on Craigslist. After only a year of owning his Ferrari 458 Italia we were wondering why he’d be so quick to sell but from the looks of this photo, Deadmau has had no problem moving on.
Pfaff Mclaren in Canada posted this photo to their Facebook page recently with the caption “Deadmau5 taking delivery of the new beast!! 650S. What will he name her??? Let’s wait and see!!”. We still have yet to see any photos from Deadmau5 himself but we’re sure it wont be long.
He certainly didn’t hold back when it came to customizing his Ferrari 458 — what do you think he’ll do to this McLaren?

Chumlee posted a photo of a red Ferrari 458 Italia that he wrecked on Ocean Drive in Miami recently. Before posting the photo he also shared a photo and a video of a McLaren MP4-12C he rented with the caption, “I’m not always in Miami but when I am I wear my @rick_harrison socks and rent fast cars”. Maybe it should be more like, Chumlee isn’t always in Miami, but when he is, he wrecks fast cars…
At least the McLaren stayed in one piece.
