After being involved in a couple of incidents, the British personality has eventually earlier this year, for a whopping 8 million pounds, or the equivalent of 12.35 million USD. But between the McLaren F1 and the BMW i3 is a huge step back and even if this is one praised “green” hatchback, it is no match for the iconic supercar.

Mr. Bean has been spotted around town the other day with his newest ride, a BMW i3, which is wearing a dark grey shade on its exterior design. He may be exempt from the London Congestion Zone charge with the German vehicle but chances are we will see another expensive model added to his garage soon, because we all know that this drug cannot go away. The BMW i3 is offered in a 5-door hatchback body style, coming with a rear-engine and rear-wheel drive, producing a total of 170 HP (125 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque from its electric motor.
