British actor Rowan Atkinson cheated death outside of London Thursday night after he crashed his $1.2 million McLaren F1 sports car.

The Mr. Bean star spun the maroon-colored supercar — which can go up to 240 mph — several times before hitting a tree and then a road sign.

His prized possession then caught fire before him near Haddon in Cambridgeshire, which is approximately 75 miles north of London.

Fireman who arrived on the scene put out the fire, while the 56-year-old actor was taken to a nearby hospital by paramedics for observation.

It is not the first time Atkinson has crashed the rare sports car which can hit speeds of 0-60 in under three seconds.
