The first production Range Rover Evoque becomes a royalty, as Zara Anne Elizabeth Phillips recivies the keys at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials.
Ms. Phillips is a Land Rover ambassador and competes at the Burghley event. Of course being a royalty she has grown up around Land Rovers and Range Rovers, although her mother Princess Anne had a Reliant Scimitar, you know!
Zara was handed the keys to a 5-Door Range Rover Evoque in Stornaway Grey, with a 2.2 litre Diesel engine, 6-speed automatic transmission, panoramic sunroof and features including park assist, blind spot monitoring and a surround camera system.
The rest of the people who have ordered more 20,000 Evoques must wait a bit longer.
Land Rover UK Marketing Director, Laura Schwab showed Zara around her new car and said “Zara has been excited about the new Evoque ever since we revealed the first pictures over a year ago and indeed she was one of the very first people to order one.”
We have a huge presence at Burghley this year, with over 60 Land Rover vehicles in action at the event. It therefore seemed fitting that our first Evoque handover took place here.”
On receiving the keys to the new Evoque, Zara said: “I’ve grown up around Land Rovers and have been an ambassador for the brand for several years – I am really looking forward to getting behind the wheel of my new Evoque. It looks absolutely fantastic and I am delighted to be the first person in the UK to take delivery of one.”
