Photo dated Nov. 15 1998 of comedian Rowan Atkinson at the wheel of his McLaren F1 sports car. It was reported Friday Feb. 8 2013 that it took more than a year — and more than 900,000 pounds ($1,400,000) — to get his supercar up and running after a 2011 crash in which he badly injured a shoulder, but F1's now sell for around 3.5 million pounds. The car makes extensive use of carbon fiber and needed specialist care. The car insurance settlement is one of the largest in British history.
