Land Rover ambassador Zara Phillips has become the first person to take delivery of the new Range over Evoque. Ms Phillips drove the Range Rover Evoque from the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials.
Land Rover UK Marketing Director, Laura Schwab 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 Range Rover 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."
The Range Rover Evoque will be available in UK showrooms this week. Land Rover has already received 20,000 pre-orders across the world, with 6000 from the UK. Launch events for the Range Rover Evoque will take place across Land Rover dealerships in the UK on 8th September 2011 ahead of the first official UK deliveries on 9th September 2011.
Zara's Range Rover Evoque is a 5 seat model 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.
Zara was competing in the land Rover-sponsored Burghley Horse Trials. More than 60 Land Rovers were used by the event's officials, fence judges and medical teams.
