Footballer Michael Owen (pictured) has taken delivery of his new car from luxury and sports car dealership Alexanders Prestige.
The footballer drove away in a black 2014 Range Rover Sport, after spending a few weeks studying the extensive selection of cars at the dealership.
Owen said: “The guys here at Alexanders Prestige are very helpful, and the cars are just stunning. It’s never been a hard sell. Instead, it’s felt more like they’ve been advising me. They’re friendly, enthusiastic, and clearly know so much about their cars. They also take a lot of pride in what they sell, so you trust them – every car looks immaculate.”
Managing director of the North Yorkshire dealership, Andrew North, said: “Michael is clearly very knowledgeable about his cars. He looks back at his automotive past in our video with a glint in his eye. Our aim is to make sure his vehicle choice in the future is even more exacting.
"We feel very proud to welcome Michael and all of our customers – international football greats or not – to Boroughbridge. It’s a beautiful little corner of the world, and I think it’s a big part of what makes Alexanders so special. What’s more, we’re very lucky to be so close to some hugely enjoyable driving roads and magnificent views. I’m not sure I can think of a better place to try out your new car.”
