Mr Bean's Armchair Mini up for Auction

Thu, 28 Jan 2010

The 'Armchair control' Mr Bean Mini that stole the show at Goodwood's Revival meeting last September, is to be auctioned by London specialist auction house - Coys.


Built expressly for the only live performance by Rowan Atkinson's Mr Bean character - the ensemble of the Mr Bean character aboard his seemingly rope-steering Mini caused mayhem amongst the all-classic Mini parade held during Lord March's unique 'step-back-in-time event'. Driving the wrong way up the track, Mr Bean gate crashed the parade - only to be chased around the circuit by a period Police Mini Cooper 'S' - much to the delight of the capacity crowd.

Rowan Atkinson - in Mr Bean persona -  bumped into Business Secretary Lord Mandelson during the Goodwood event and cheekily remarked: "Ah, Prime Minister."

To which Mandy replied: "Not quite yet".

The Goodwood Mr Bean Mini is currently on display at Coys showrooms in Richmond.

This unique car  will go on sale at the Coys 'Spring Classics' sale, which will be held at the Royal Horticultural Halls, London on 11th March 2010.
