Kokkedoor's Elsa Loves Her GWM C20R
Celebrity status is still something that feels alien to Elsa Buys from Clarens in the Free State, but after emerging as a winner during the second season of the hit KykNET reality cooking show, Kokkedoor, she has become a household name.
Besides the fame and other major prizes, Elsa also received a brand new C20R as a result of GWM's sponsorship of the award-winning series. While most viewers expected that Elsa would end up driving a flashy red C20R, as displayed on set, she instead requested a white version, and has now already spent more than 6 000 km driving it, including a long trip to view the spring flowers that took her and husband Schalk from Clarens to Hermanus and back.
"We are very impressed with the car," Elsa comments. "It feels so solid and safe - you can feel the quality when you close doors, bonnet and tailgate. And it's very zippy. The gearbox is a delight to use and the power is certainly there. Inside, it's got so many surprising luxury features that it feels like a big, expensive car. On our flower-viewing trip we also spent a lot of time on gravel roads, where the GWM's raised ground clearance was very beneficial."
And what's next for Elsa? "Oh, I'm very busy at the moment, and I will definitely be on the road a lot in my C20R!"
