It is only a 728 so it would not have gone far. Belongs to Sagar Muthappa - believe his father's driver is the culprit - normally used to a Siena. The BMW was driven by the famous Phaneesh Murthy ex Infosys (currently Sagar is building a new campus for him so that how he got behind the wheel !)

It is certainly not a 760il - have seen it in Bangalore Club - Sagar's father is currently the President of the club.
Phaneesh borrowed the car for a "sunday drive "

BPL guy - is Rajiv Chandrashekhar - he would rather not be connected to the cars officially as BPL is broke - guess how ? Also the cars came in strange ways - his Maranello is actually on taxi plates

Great to know someone has a Porsche 944 Turbo in India - one of my all time favourites. Any idea how long she took to do the quarter mile?
