Popular British comedian Rowan Atkinson, popular for his comedy series Mr. Bean will be auctioning two of its super saloon cars.

Mercedes-Benz 500E
According to reports, Mr Atkinson will sell off his vaunted Mercedes-Benz 500E and a 1989 Lancia Thema 8.32  at the Race Retro Classic Car Sale held by Silverstone Auctions next month.

The Mercedes Benz 500E is endowed with a five-liter V8 engine up front, producing 326 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. These 3,770-pound hulks of German engineering hit 60 mph in less than six seconds, and 100 mph arrives in 14. 

1989 Lancia Thema
While the 1989 Lancia Thema 8.32 is a Ducati-built 3.0-liter V8 engine driving the front wheels, producing 215 horsepower and coupled to a manual gearshift. 

Like the 500E, the Thema features a cloth interior; it’s been with Atkinson far longer as he has enjoyed it – and undoubtedly its pioneering, electrically raised rear spoiler – for seven years.
