A MOTORIST has been left feeling “violated” and in disbelief after discovering his high performance car was driven at 122mph after he dropped it off at a dealership for a check-up.

Imran Aslam, who lives in Kearsley, says he bought his Audi RS7 on Saturday, March 13 along with new tyres and tracking, balancing and alignment systems, costing £45,000.

Four days later, last Wednesday, he took his vehicle into the Bolton Audi dealership on Grosvenor Street at around 10.30am for a “health check” as a precaution.

But Mr Aslam fitted a tracking device, which records the location and car’s speed, and he said he noticed after 4pm the car was being driven.

And at around 6.10pm he saw the car was speeding at 122mph - with the dangerous speeds and locations that it was driven seen by The Bolton News.

Mr Aslam, 38, a counter clerk at an off-licence said: “I was panicking and left work to go to the dealership and phoned police.

“I thought my car had been stolen.”

When he got to the dealership he said staff were unaware the car had been driven at such a speed and it had still not been checked. It is thought a worker there had taken it out.

After expressing his shock he left the site, where the car remains, and he thinks the car may have been damaged after being driven on Wednesday.

Mr Aslam said: “I am absolutely in disbelief and I feel violated.

“I work seven days a week and and have been saving up for it for the past two years for this car. Whoever drove it could have killed someone.”

Jardine Motors said it does not comment on customer issues.
