Rowan Atkinson's McLaren F1 Crash Is UK's Biggest Repair Bill Ever
Seeing that McLaren getting ripped apart on the A605 road was surely painful enough for any car enthusiast, but the British really had something else to worry about. More than two years after the accident, several details about the whole thing have surfaced, including some amazing financial numbers.
According to Metro, the McLaren was so heavily damaged that it took the mechanics four weeks to calculate the repair costs and one year to actually bring it back to its perfect factory state.
Make sure you grab a seat because the insurance company had to pay no less than $1.44 million (GBP910.000 British pounds) to get it fixed at McLaren's workshop in Surrey, which makes it the biggest repair bill ever recorded in the United Kingdom.
Just for a fact, the bill was bigger than McLaren's initial price, and about half of it's estimated value in 2011.
