AD

What are you driving?

A tuned BMW M4 on the weekdays, and a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 on the weekends.

Shubham drives his BMW M4 daily.

What’s next on your wish list?

To own and restore a classic American muscle car like the 1969 Dodge Charger or Challenger.

The most fun you’ve had in a car?

At a track day at Silverstone circuit, UK, in a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and a McLaren P1.

Dream money no object car?

The Koenigsegg One: 1. 1,360hp coupled with the kerb weight of 1,360kg gives it a power-to-weight ratio of 1:1. It’s the ultimate hypercar, in my opinion.

Who is your all-time greatest motorsport hero?

Ayrton Senna, because he was a wet weather master and one of the all-time greats.

Favourite road?

The Furka Pass in Switzerland. The smooth road surface and amazing views are perfect for a
road trip.

What’s on your automotive bucket list?

Driving the insane Pagani Zonda R around the fearsome Nürburgring Nordschleife track
in Germany.

What would you do with your last litre of fuel?

Put it in an old V12 F1 racecar and hear it roar through the Monaco tunnel.

Your ideal 5-car garage would be?

1. Fiat 500 Abarth

2. BMW M3 CSL

3. Lamborghini Aventador SV

4. 1969 Dodge Charger

5. Koenigsegg Agera

What was your first car?

A 2015 BMW X3 that was later tuned and wrapped.
