Range Rover Evoque gets a new limited edition for 2013

LAND ROVER has released pictures of a limited edition Evoque painted in Sicilian Yellow with a contrasting Santorini Black roof and mirrors.

Alternatively buyers can reverse the scheme with a black body, switching the roof and mirrors to yellow. Either way, there will also be yellow stitching on the upholstery, central storage bin, door trims and dashboard coverings, with an additional anodized yellow horizontal strip on the passenger side.

You can order your car with a black body and yellow roof if you want but we think it looks better this way

Further styling boosts come from the Black Design Pack, which covers a rear spoiler, darkened front headlights and fog lights, black Range Rover lettering, clear rear lamps, 20-inch Gloss Black forged wheels, Santorini Black painted bumper sections and dark exhaust trim.

This is the first showing of the styling pack, which will be available on all Dynamic models as an optional extra. Based on the Evoque Dynamic derivative, the Sicilian Yellow Limited Edition’s changes are purely cosmetic. It will be available in three and five-door body styles with a choice of three drivetrains.

Available with five or three doors and all three engine options but forget about getting your hands on one

A two-wheel drive manual diesel version with 148bhp will be the lowest CO2 option, while a four-wheel drive automatic option will use the excellent 187bhp SD4 version of the same 2.2-litre engine. The only petrol option is the 236bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre engine that Land Rover shares with Volvo and Ford.

Interior gets yellow dash panels to match the exterior looks

John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director said: “The Sicilian Yellow Limited Edition is the perfect opportunity to introduce the Range Rover Evoque into 2013 and build on what is already a tremendous success story.

The Evoque's cabin is still a wonderfully stylish and practical work of art; not much room in the rear seats t …

“Such a striking colour combination attributes itself to the already unique styling of the Evoque. This, combined with the release of the Black Design Pack in April, will provide customers with yet more appealing and unique choices.”

Heavily winged seats are a must to keep the driver in place, especially in the petrol powered version

Though the bright colour seems almost perfectly suited to Evoque customers celebrating Chinese New Year, Malaysian buyers shouldn’t get their hopes up. The waiting list for the Evoque is already incredibly long so trying to get their hands on a limited edition version will probably be next to impossible.
