Seventy have also been the number of victories that Cupra has achieved in 2019, a year after being born as an independent brand. The union of the concepts Cup (cup) and Racing (competition) appeared, for the first time, in 1996. The Ibiza of that year was the first model to be marketed under that name. Later, the 2000 Leon Cupra revolutionized the market for entry-level sports compact. Twenty years later, the competitive essence remains as alive as in the Kit Car and it does so from Martorell. The Cupra Garage was inaugurated at the beginning of 2020 and, next to it, the Cupra Racing Factory, the racing car workshop where the magic arises.
