Bangalore to Karwar (point to point) approx 540 Kms in my Wagon-R in May 09. I didn't want to take any route with no mobile connectivity. Though this was not possible on some stretches between Yellapur to Karwar.
Drive as fast but safe wherever possible and avoiding even slightest damage to vehicle/tyres was the mantra.

Longest solo drive for me was Udaipur-Gurgaon in my favorite Maruti 800. About 700 kms, started off very early around 4 am and reached Gurgaon before lunch. Pleasurable drive, with nice smooth roads all the way and very low traffic till Jaipur.

Outside India, my longest solo drive was Johannesburg-Kruger national park, South Africa around 750 kms, even better roads and a much nicer car, Toyota Camry

Trivandrum to Bangalore about 780 km (and back), on quite a few occasions. Driving all by myself but accompanied by my wife-does this disqualify me?
Takes me about 12 hours running time, about 14-15 hours including breaks for breakfast, lunch and tea.

My Longest Solo drive(s) are from Mumbai to New Delhi in 2004, distance is 1400 kms approx. & the vehicle was a Zen 1996 which I still have with me, 200k+ on the odo
and
the other solo drive of approx the same distance has been Mumbai to Kolhapur and back 1300~1400 Kms on the same day in 2006. Vehicle was 1998 Honda City 1.3 Exi. Engine no 000239, chassis no. 000238. Sold this one last year.

There are other drives of similar &/or more distances but not solo.

Bangalore-Trivandrum & Chennai-Kochi (about 700+) are mostly done. Delhi-Kochi via Mumbai-Hubli-Mangalore in about 54hrs (including 8-9hrs break) was the longest one in life (lost lot of time after Hubli!!)

My longest solo drive (approx 700+ km) was way back in 2000 when I drove my Zen from Vizag to Hyderabad via Vijayawada.

I have not driven solo since then, though even now when we drive with family, I am the solo driver with passengers. Longest drive all by myself with family was from Jabalpur to Hyderabad which is close to 800 Km.

Cheers.
