    File - 1993 McLaren F1McLaren

Mr. Bean star Rowan Atkinson has his beloved supercar back in one piece after insurers coughed up a staggering $1.4 million to fix it - the biggest-ever repair bill in Britain, The Sun reports.

Rowan suffered a shoulder injury in 2011 when he crashed the McLaren F1, for the second time.

But while the comic actor recovered quickly his 240mph supercar spent more than a year in the hands of McLaren’s expert technicians.

The result was a $1.4 million bill for a car which cost him $1 million in 1997 - three times as much as the previous most expensive repair claim.
