Range Rover Evoque (2013) Sicilian Yellow limited editionThu, 10 Jan 2013
Land Rover has announced that it will be producing a limited edition model of its highly successful Evoque. Selling over 100,000 models in its first year, the Mrs Beckham-influenced crossover has won fans for its high levels of individualisation – but you haven't been able to spec a yellow version, until now.
The appropriately titled ‘Sicilian Yellow Limited Edition Evoque’ is set to be unveiled at the January 2013 Brussels motor show. Another debutant aspect making an appearance is the ‘black design pack’ fitted to this limited edition model. Prices are expected to start at around £44,000, with UK sales expected to start in May - a £6,000 premium over the Dynamic trim level it’s based on.So, how special is this limited edition model? Just a fancy paint job?
Far from it – there's a revamped cabin too. Inside, the Sicilian Yellow model boasts unique finishes like yellow contrast seat stitching, central storage area, door trims and fascia mid-section, along with an anodised yellow horizontal finisher. If all-over yellow isn’t your colour, you can spec your limited edition Evoque in 'Santorini black' with contrasting yellow roof and door mirrors.
Being the first Evoque model to be fitted with the ‘black design pack’, your Evoque will also be decorated with a rear sports spoiler, darkened front head- and fog-lights, black 'Range Rover' lettering, black-tipped exhausts and very of-the-moment 20in gloss black rims. The ‘black design pack’ will be available independently of the Limited Edition from April 2013.
What you don't get are any performance upgrades. Mechanically, there's the usual choice of petrol and diesel four-pot engines, but no power boost included. The limited edition Evoques are available in three-door coupe and five-door bodystyles, but there's still no word on a production soft-top...
