Only last month, German stable Mercedes-Benz, in a joint pilot project with Bosch revealed that they have developed an innovative parking service: the so-called "Automated Valet Parking".
And it was showcased for the first time in Mercedes-Benz Museum, Stuttgart. It is considered as an important milestone on the way to autonomous driving.
Tendulkar, arguably the greatest batsman ever lived, has a penchant for expensive cars, including a fleet of high-end BMWs.
He was once gifted a Ferrari by Formula One legend Michael Schumacher on behalf of Fiat in 2002.
