i doubt the car made any different sounds during the 100m drive. the intake roar is actually when you open the throttle properly in gear. plus.. his wife was driving (so one can be sure no high rpm action had taken place)

Nothing at all, relax.
It would be diff if someone drove the car in real dusty conditions for 10-20 KM.
