As if the Range Rover Evoque didn't already stand out enough, Land Rover is adding a Sicilian Yellow Limited Edition model to make the stylish CUV even harder to miss. Debuting this week at the Brussels Motor Show, this new Evoque model will go on sale in May, and while we don't know which exact market it will be sold in, we know for sure it won't be coming to North America.
The new limited-edition model is available on the Evoque's three- and five-door body styles, and paint schemes are limited to either Sicilian Yellow with a Santorini Black roof and door mirrors or Santorini Black with a Sicilian Yellow roof and door mirrors. Surprisingly, the Evoque doesn't look that bad in yellow, but the reverse paint scheme looks very odd. The interior also gets plenty of yellow with an anodized accent running across the instrument panel and contrasting stitching throughout most of the leather-laden cabin.
This model also debuts the Evoque's new Black Design Pack, which will be available on all Evoque Dynamic models starting in April. The Black Design Pack will add darkened headlights and foglights, black Range Rover lettering on the hood, black 20-inch wheels, black painted accents on the front and rear fascias, clear-lensed taillights and a liftgate spoiler.
More information about this new Evoque model is posted in a press release after the jump.

Sicilian Yellow Limited Edition Range Rover Evoque Debuts Black Design Pack
10 January 2013
The Range Rover Evoque is gearing up for Spring with the Sicilian Yellow Limited Edition model which makes its debut at the Brussels Motor Show on 10 January. Based on the 2013 Evoque Dynamic Plus, the Limited Edition sports a number of unique features giving it a truly striking appearance. Orders are being taken now with deliveries beginning in May.
The Range Rover Evoque has asserted itself as Land Rover's most desirable model, selling in excess of 100,000 vehicles in its first full year with sales continuing to show rapid growth worldwide. The new Sicilian Yellow Limited Edition offers customers highly desirable styling features which will build on the Evoque's success and reinforce its global appeal.
Available in coupé and 5-door, customers can choose from two exterior colour schemes, each one unique to the Limited Edition model and based on a new Black Design Pack. Choices include a Sicilian Yellow exterior body finish with a Santorini Black contrast roof, or a Santorini Black exterior body finish with a Sicilian Yellow contrast roof and door mirrors. Unique interior finishes include yellow contrast stitching on seats, central storage area, door trims and fascia mid-section, plus an anodised yellow horizontal finisher.
This limited edition model debuts the Black Design Pack which will be available independently of the Limited Edition from April 2013. The Black Design Pack will be available exclusively on Dynamic models and includes rear sport spoiler, darkened front headlights and fog lamps, black Range Rover lettering, clear rear lamps, 20-inch Gloss Black forged wheels, Santorini Black painted bumper sections and dark exhaust finishers.
"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. 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," said John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.
The Range Rover Evoque is powered by a choice of engines. Land Rover's powerful, efficient and lightweight 2.2 litre diesel engine, in both TD4 150PS and SD4 190PS guise, combined with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. The two-wheel drive eD4 is powered by the 150PS TD4 version of the engine combined with a six-speed manual gearbox and produces just 129g/km CO2. The lightweight Land Rover Si4 petrol engine delivers 240PS and is combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive.
