Things aren’t going too well at FC Barcelona. Not that long ago, everyone admired and loved Barça. They had Lionel Messi and they made history with a team made almost entirely out of players coming from Barça’s youth system, the mythological ‘La Masia’.
Then things went south quickly. A few terrible business decisions coupled with dodgy executive decisions and now they’re struggling to even be in the Champions League. Still, at least things could be worse, the players could be riding a bicycle to work. They drive Cupras instead.
Cupra, formerly part of SEAT and now a standalone brand, is based in Martorell, a stone’s throw from Barcelona, and a few weeks ago, they gave all the players, including Marc ter Stegen, the goalkeeper, a brand-new Cupra born that they can drive in their free time, assuming of course they *have to*, as per contract, drive it to the training centre and whenever they’re on official business.
The Born is virtually the same as the ‘El Born’, the prototype that preceded it. In fact the only visible difference is the name because they dropped the ‘El’ part of the name. The range is 335 miles and 0-60 takes 7.3 seconds. And the price tag? £33,735 for the 58kWh battery. What do we think?
