Mr India Takes Sachin Tendulkar For A Drive In A BMW 7-Series

Added in: BMW

Referred to as the God of cricket, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar is a petrolhead himself. Over the years, he has owned and driven a number of exotic cars, including Ferrari’s and even a Formula1 race car. His garage is currently graced by some of the best BMWs available in the Indian market, including the i8 hybrid and the mighty X5M. The tech-laden and ultra-exclusive 760Li has also been a part of his garage for quite some time now. This luxurious sedan has one party trick up its sleeve, which can guide the car in and out of small garages, allowing you to park the car up without actually having to sit on the driver’s seat.

The car starts up on its own, during the start of the video. Jokingly, the master blaster comments that Anil Kapoor from the movie Mr India is driving the car, while being invisible to us. We can also catch a glimpse of his bright red X5M SUV which is a few feet away from this driverless BMW. The car even makes some minor adjustments to the steering, sliding perfectly into the spot where it is meant to be. This movement of the car can be controlled with the smart key BMW offers with this luxurious sedan, and now even in the 5-series.
