As it prepares its return from the garage, CUPRA has launched a very special story on its social media. With the slogan ‘Inspiring the world from home’, the brand’s global ambassador Marc ter Stegen shares one of his secret, non-career related passions.
The German international, who joined the CUPRA Tribe last February, has parked his CUPRA Ateca Limited Edition in the garage and opens the doors of his home to reveal one of his hidden passions: healthy cooking. In this episode, the footballer trades his FC Barcelona goalkeeper’s gloves for oven mitts to share his personal recipe for homemade granola.
In the privacy of his kitchen, Marc shows he is also a great stickler for detail and accuracy in his daily life. Off the pitch, he has a high appreciation for fresh, healthy goods, such as granola, a blend of oats, walnuts, dried fruits, salt and cinnamon. “These days it’s more important than ever to eat well. In addition to physical exercise, granola gives me the healthy energy source I need to stay fit and return to the field in the best shape to pursue our goals. Until then, it’s time to indulge in other passions”, says ter Stegen. With this story, the brand aims to show that we all have hidden passions that we can explore from home, while the engines of the CUPRA models rest in the garage.
CUPRA also recently organised a virtual get-together with Marc ter Stegen on the brand’s Instagram channel, ‘cupra_official’. More than 60,000 fans from all over the world connected to interact with the FC Barcelona goalkeeper, who answered all sorts of questions with agility and quick reflexes.
The German goalkeeper reviewed his professional career and highlighted that the best moment was winning the Champions League in 2015. Ter Stegen also revealed his taste for sports cars by praising the striking design of the CUPRA Formentor as well as highlighting the interior style of the new CUPRA Leon. Both models will be launched to the market in the second half of this year.
Ter Stegen has been a CUPRA global ambassador since February, when the brand introduced the new CUPRA Leon family and inaugurated its new headquarters, the CUPRA Garage. Since then, the German goalkeeper has been driving one of the 1,999 units of the CUPRA Ateca Limited Edition and enjoying the eye-catching design and sound experience of this high-performance SUV, which in this limited edition features 20″ copper-coloured alloy wheels and carbon-fibre elements, providing added elegance and improved aerodynamic capability.
The CUPRA Ateca Limited Edition is an unparalleled vehicle that combines an impressive 2-litre, four-cylinder, direct-injection, turbocharged TSI petrol engine, which generates no less than 300 PS and 400 Nm of maximum torque, with a seven-speed DSG transmission, the 4Drive all-wheel traction system, an Akrapovic exhaust system and progressive steering.
Along with Marc ter Stegen, CUPRA has put together an elite team of champions who share the brand’s values: passion, determination and high performance, including award-winning race driver Mattias Ekström and four of the world’s best padel players, Fernando Belasteguín, Pablo Lima, Alejandra Salazar and Ariana Sánchez.
