Actor Rowan Atkinson, famous for playing Mr Bean and Johnny English, is selling his Lancia Delta Integrale.

Listed by Silverstone Auctions, this 1993 Lancia Delta is expected to fetch around $90,000.

But to be frank, it sounds like a conservative estimate.

The Lancia Delta Integrale is one of the most sought-after Italian cars you can buy today, and this one is mint.

Finished in a dark shade of green and complemented with tan suede interior, this is actually a left-hand drive model, even though it’s registered in the UK.

The 211-hp, 2.0-liter engine that powers it is in excellent condition, too.

Atkinson bought the Lancia in May 2021 with 54,000 miles on the clock and has barely driven it since.

The car is worthy of a museum but there’s another reason why we think this car will sell for more than the pre-auction estimate.

Atkinson is a serious car collector.

Among others, he’s owned a rare McLaren F1, a first-gen Honda NSX, and an Aston Martin V8 Zagato.

According to Silverstone Auctions, the Delta could fetch anywhere between $80,000 to $93,000 (£65,000 and £75,000).

However, considering its condition and the ‘Atkinson factor’, we wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up fetching a six-figure sum.

Rowan Atkinson and his cars

Rowan Atkinson, 68, is a bona fide ‘petrolhead’.

The actor purchased a brand-new McLaren F1 in 1997 for £640,000 – equivalent to around $900,000 at the time.

Atkinson then sold the car in 2015 for a whopping $12 million, nearly 10 times its original price.

In 2011, he asked Rolls-Royce to fit a 9.0-liter V16 (yep, you read that right) into the Phantom Drophead Coupé used for the movie ‘Johnny English Reborn’.

Amazingly, Rolls-Royce actually said yes.
