"I take care of her; I’m never going to get rid of it" - Raducanu on her beloved Dacia Sandero
Emma Raducanu is an ambassador for Porsche however she still uses her beloved Dacia Sandero and it's not going anyway.
Emma Raducanu became a Porsche Ambassador after her US Open triumph but she still adores her first care, a Dacia Sandero. There is actually a wholes story behind how she got the car in the first place and she spoke about it recently:
"My dad is Romanian and a Dacia was his first car. So, yeah, I have a white Dacia Sandero. It was funny, I passed my test three days before the first lockdown and we sort of knew it was going into lockdown, so we needed to buy a car ASAP. I bought it second-hand for £5k. I take care of her. I’m never going to get rid of it."
Despite that, she is a fan of porsche, particularly the Taycan, an electric model form the manufacturer:
"I definitely have a better respect for electric cars after driving a Taycan. The acceleration is so smooth, it’s almost like you are taking off in a UFO. And obviously it’s great for the planet. But, for me, nothing can really beat the organic smell and sound of a car."
