‘Face of Porsche’ Emma Raducanu proudly drives to gym in five-year-old Dacia Sandero worth just £7995 new | The Sun

EMMA RADUCANU proudly drives to the gym in a five-year-old Dacia Sandero, despite being a Porsche ambassador.

The humble US Open champion was pictured in a £150,000 911 GT3 white Porsche as she struck up a partnership with the luxurious brand in March.

Avid petrolhead Raducanu, 19, also took one out for a spin last month.

Earlier this year, she revealed her motor of choice, saying: "My favourite car is the 911 for sure.

"Throughout the generations it's so unique and beautiful in every way.

"I feel like it's one of the most iconic cars that are out there."

"That was always very special."

Raducanu has been driving to the All England Club as she tries to be ready for Wimbledon next week.

The world No11 is in a race against time to play her second Championships, having been suffering with a side strain.

Raducanu was forced to retire during her Nottingham Open clash with Viktorija Golubic a fortnight ago.

She subsequently pulled out of the Rothesay Classic in Birmingham, before opting not to take a wildcard for this week's WTA event in Eastbourne.

Should she be able to take to court, Raducanu will be seeded tenth in the women's singles draw in SW19.
