Only 999 units of this hand-assembled special edition Range Rover will ever be produced.
Land Rover has revealed the Range Rover SV Coupe, a two-door luxury SUV that pays homage to the original Range Rover.
The SV Coupe is a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline with a two-door silhouette that alludes to its unique heritage, as the original Range Rover was launched as a two-door back in 1970. Land Rover Design and Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) have collectively created the SV Coupe, which will be hand-assembled at the SV Technical Centre in Ryton-on-Dunsmore in Warwickshire, UK.
While the signature floating roof, continuous waist and tapering tail are instantly recognisable Range Rover design elements, they are expressed in a different way to grant this limited run model its bespoke appeal. In addition to the new bumpers, the SV Coupe also gains power closing doors with frameless glass. Additionally, this is the first Range Rover to ride on 23-inch alloy wheels.
The SV Coupe features a four-seat layout on the inside. The front seats feature semi-aniline leather to make the cabin lush. The front passenger seats have white, diamond-quilted leather seats, while the rear seats have contrasting navy blue ones. A wooden center console with metallic trim runs along the entire length of the SV Coupe’s cabin. Obviously, all creature comforts found on the top-spec Range Rover also make their way into this special edition model.
The SV Coupe draws its firepower from Range Rover's most powerful 5.0-litre, supercharged V8 petrol powertrain producing 557bhp and 700Nm. It comes mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission with rotary drive selector and paddle-shifts. This delivers a 0 – 100km/h in just 5.3 seconds. Staying true to its SUV credentials, the SV Coupe also comes equipped with Land Rover’s Terrain Response 2 four-wheel-drive system.
This so-called collector’s edition Rangie is priced at £240,000 (~ Rs. 2.16 crores), making it the most expensive Range Rover sold currently. We are yet to see if any of the 999 SV Coupe units produced will be allotted to India or not.
