For BMW fanboys, the BMW X5M in long beach blue is quite a rare car itself, even sans the fact that Sachin once owned it. The M-Badge means that it is the performance version of the luxury SUV that comes with a 4,619cc V8 petrol that makes 347 Bhp and 480 Nm of peak torque.

With 72,000 kms on the odometer, the SUV has been priced at Rs 21 lakh. Which is reasonable considering the cars heritage and the fact that it has been properly maintained since it made it to India.
