Our lovely colleagues at Land Rover Experience recently welcomed Robert and Dianna Taylor to complete a tour of the factory and to see their Firenze Red, Range Rover Evoque on the line, and the Halewood team working hard to build it for them.
The couple had made the journey down from Woking in Surrey. They were delighted to see their car; Rob first saw a Range Rover Evoque at a Land Rover retailer in 2011 and instantly took a shine to them but unfortunately was not able to buy one at the time. He likes that it is designed, engineered and manufactured in Britain and the fact he’s contributing towards our economy.
Rob absolutely loves the design of the second generation Evoque and when he went on a test drive was blown away with how refined it was compared to other competitor products that he had driven.
Diana also can’t wait for the car to arrive as she is currently Rob’s chauffeur in her trusty Kia Picanto, as Rob doesn’t have his own car until his Range Rover Evoque arrives and he really can’t wait!
Rob shared with us: “I’m an avid Liverpool fan which was my inspiration for the colour of car I picked! I can’t wait for the car to arrive as I was never keen on the rotary gear selector in the previous generation Evoque, but I think the pistol shift in the new one is fantastic.”
Rob and Diana both really enjoy trips out to the coast and any areas of historical interest. Once they take delivery of their Evoque, Rob plans to take Diana on a trip to see the crooked Steeple in Chesterfield and also the Christmas markets in Brighton. Rob also has another special trip planned but kept tight lipped as it is a surprise for Diana and he didn’t want to spoil it for her!
Before they left, Diana told the team: “I’m really blown away by how friendly and welcoming everyone was during our tour we’d love to thank the whole Halewood team for such a fantastic experience.”
Best of luck Rob and Diana with your new car – we hope you get to create many special memories in it!
