Land Rover to Build 999 Range Rover SV Coupes
As part of the celebration of the company’s 70th anniversary, Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations will build a limited run of hand-built Range Rover coupes. The 2-door coupe will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show later this year.
Officially, only the interior concept has been revealed, but we’ve rendered a possible exterior concept as well. Details will come soon, but we know the Range Rover SV Coupe, as it will be called, will be build on the full-size Range Rover platform and will presumably be powered by the 557-hp SVAutobiography V8.
FULL PRESS RELEASE:
(MAHWAH, N.J.) – January 23, 2018 – Today, Land Rover announces the introduction of an all-new full-size luxury SUV coupe. The Range Rover SV Coupe will be a dramatic and desirable addition to the Range Rover model portfolio featuring a seductive body design and a supremely refined interior.
“The Range Rover SV Coupe is a highly compelling design with peerless refinement and uncompromised sophistication from its breathtaking exterior proportions to its sumptuous, beautifully appointed, interior. This is a vehicle that will resonate on an emotional level,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer.
The SV Coupe is a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline, with a dramatic two- door silhouette which alludes to its unique heritage – the Range Rover launched as a two-door in 1970 – while being thoroughly modern and contemporary.
The interior image released today illustrates that traditional skills have combined with the latest technologies throughout the cabin to exquisite effect. Stunning to the eye, sumptuous to the touch, it is a light, contemporary space where attention to detail has been paramount.
Land Rover Design and Special Vehicle Operations have created the Range Rover SV Coupe, which will be hand-assembled at the SV Technical Center in Ryton-on-Dunsmore in Warwickshire, UK. Production will be limited to no more than 999 vehicles for worldwide distribution.
“Land Rover created the luxury SUV sector with Range Rover almost 50 years ago. In launching the new Range Rover SV Coupe, we will offer clients an alluring combination of peerless luxury and rarity,” said John Edwards, Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director. “Unveiling this special vehicle at the Geneva International Motor Show in March, during Land Rover’s 70th Anniversary year, will be a defining moment for Land Rover, the Range Rover portfolio and Special Vehicle Operations.”
A full range of images and specification details for the new Range Rover SV Coupe, will be revealed at www.landroverusa.com on March 6, 2018.
