Dyed-in-the-wool car enthusiast Rowan Atkinson is selling his McLaren F1 for $12 million (£8m). It must be one of the most interesting secondhand cars on sale today: the acting legend behind Mr Bean, Blackadder and more comic legends has owned the seminal supercar since new for 17 years.

Honda has shown the new Acura NSX hybrid sports car in these restrictively photographed teaser images ahead of its debut at the 2015 Detroit motor show.

Dealers have been taking orders for the new 2015 NSX for the past two years, and now have 100 signatures, officials have confirmed to CAR. That's enough demand for this limited-volume coupe to cap supply for now; it's ...
