Range Rover has revealed details of an exclusive new two-door model at the Geneva Motor Show.
The Range Rover SV Coupe will be a limited-run car aimed at Range Roverâ€™s most demanding customers.
Featuring a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 and bespoke four-seat interior, the Â£240,000 SV Coupe is the latest vehicle to come out of Jaguar Land Roverâ€™s Special Vehicle Operations.
The 557bhp V8 makes it the fastest Range Rover yet, with a 0-60mph time of five seconds and a top speed of 165mph. The ride height and suspension has been tuned to make the SV Coupe more road-focused than standard Range Rovers but it still comes equipped with the full Terrain Response 2 system and adjustable air suspension to maintain extreme off-road abilities.
Range Rover says the SV Coupe will bring new levels of luxury to its interiors, with a standard comparable to private jets and yachts. Given its target market, thatâ€™s probably just as well.
It will also be the most customisable Range Rover with buyers able to personalise interior and exterior features to their heartâ€™s content.
Buyers will be able to choose from more than 100 standard and specialist paints or Range Rover will match any colour they like. There will be a choice of four duo-tone front and rear leather colours with a bespoke quilt pattern; three wood veneers; contrast stitching; headrest embroidery; door handle and treadplate engraving and semi-precious metal badging along with alloy wheels ranging from 21 to 23 inches.
The SV Coupe will also feature the twin-screen InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment first seen in the Velar and a 23-speaker, 1,700w Meridian sound system.
Gerry McGovern, Land Roverâ€™s chief design officer,, said: â€œThe Range Rover SV CoupÃ© is a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline. With a dramatic two-door silhouette, this breathtaking four seat coupÃ© alludes to its unique heritage whilst being thoroughly modern and contemporary. The Range Rover SV CoupÃ© delivers the most distinguished, luxurious and exclusive Range Rover ever built.â€
Only 999 Range Rover SV Coupes will be built. Each will be hand assembled at the SVO Technical Centre with prices starting at Â£240,000 and the first models expected to be on sale later this year.
Of course, the SV Coupe isnâ€™t the first two-door Range Rover. The original model was only available as a two-door for the first 11 years of its production, with the four-door version only going on sale in 1981. And you can still pick up one of those for a lot less than quarter of a million.
