Zara Phillips with her new Stornaway Grey Evoque Range Rover.
"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 her new Evoque, Phillips said: "I've grown up around Land Rovers and been an ambassador for them for many 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 officially enters UK showrooms next week but is already proving a hit with customers. Land Rover have received over 20,000 pre-orders worldwide with 6000 of these in the UK.
Phillips was handed the keys to a 5-Door Range Rover Evoque in Stornaway Grey, with 2.2 litre Diesel engine, 6-speed automatic transmission, panoramic sunroof and features such as park assist, blind spot monitoring and a surround camera system.
She is competing at the Burghley Horse Trials event, which is being sponsored by Land Rover for the seventh year running. Over 60 Land Rovers are being used by competition officials, fence judges and medical teams. The full Land Rover lineup will be on display on the Land Rover stand and members of the public will be able to experience Land Rover's capability with a passenger ride on a purpose-built off-road course.
