Back in July, Rowan Atkinson, the famous British actor widely known for his “Mr. Bean” roles, went on Top Gear to not only promote his latest flick, “Johnny English”, but also to talk about a special Rolls Royce Phantom used in the movie.
In the upcoming flick, the popular British actor drives an experimental Rolls Royce model with a 9.0 liter V16 engine. The “monster Rolls” was meant to turn the rolls into the “Ultimate Luxury Car for the 21st Century” with the ultimate engine. The company apparently made three or four of these engines that produced “unbelievable power and torque.”
The British automaker also produced a select few prototypes before deciding to go with a smaller powerplant.
News came down the pipe that Rowan Atkinson, along with the special Rolls Royce, will make a guest appearance at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show.
