Land Rover is going back to the future with the launch of a two-door version of its flagship Range Rover.
The dramatic Range Rover SV Coupé will pay homage to the original car – the world’s first full-size luxury SUV – launched in 1970 and initially only available as a two-door.
“The Range Rover SV Coupé is a highly compelling design with peerless refinement and uncompromised sophistication from its breathtaking exterior proportions to its sumptuous, beautifully appointed, interior,” explained Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer. “This is a vehicle that will resonate on an emotional level.”
So far only a teaser interior image has been released, revealing diamond-quilted leather seats and a wood-covered centre console running the entire length of the cabin. We’ll have to wait until the Geneva Motor Show in March for the unveiling of the car – one of the highlights of Land Rover’s 70th anniversary year.
The Range Rover SV Coupé has been created by Land Rover Design and Special Vehicle Operations. It will be hand-assembled at the SV Technical Centre in Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Warwickshire, and production will be limited to no more than 999 vehicles worldwide.
“Land Rover created the luxury SUV sector with Range Rover almost 50 years ago,” added John Edwards, Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director, “In launching the new Range Rover SV Coupé, we will offer clients an alluring combination of peerless luxury and rarity.
“Unveiling this special vehicle at 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.
