Sachin Tendulkar’s garage also houses BMW’s flagship four-door M6 Gran Coupe powered by a twin-turbo V8 4395cc petrol engine. This is a heinously fast car that will charge towards its limited 250kph top speed with the blinkered insanity of a raging elephant trampling past 100kph in 4.2 seconds.
Sachin’s famous Ferrari 360 Modena used to do the same 0 to 100kph time. And with the M6’s performance entering sports car territory, Sachin needed a sports car that was quicker. So the 360 found a new home. And Sachin found himself a new car.
Enter, the Nissan GT-R. A car that explodes from zero to 100kph in an unbelievable 2.9 seconds. Best of all for Sachin, it’s flamboyance lies only in it’s performance. The GTR’s desgn does not shout out its supercar underpinnings and attract the eyeballs a red Ferrari does. This allows him to sneak out for a drive without creating a traffic jam.
We do not know how many kilometers these cars have clocked in their odometers so far. But what we do know is, now these cars will be clocking many more miles. For 24-years we have enjoyed his drives on the cricket field, now we wish him to enjoy his drives off it.
