It has been nearly 50 years since British heritage heavyweights Land Rover created the entire luxury SUV sector with the introduction of the Range Rover. Today, it’s defining a new genre with the world’s first full-size luxury SUV coupé: the limited-edition two-door Range Rover SV Coupé.
Created by Land Rover Design and Special Vehicle Operations, the SV Coupé is an exemplar of Range Rover design, craftsmanship and capability. It features a 5.0-litre Supercharged V8, typically-luxurious cabin and the peerless all-terrain ability we’ve come to expect from the marque – and this Racing Green edition was designed especially by the team at Gentleman’s Journal.
Beautiful proportions pair with a powerful stance to give the SV Coupé an unrivalled on-road presence. The signature floating roof, continuous waist and tapering tail are instantly recognisable Range Rover DNA, yet are expressed in a unique way for this exclusive addition to the Range Rover family.
Carefully curated body colour combinations, including a new Contour Graphic available in four duo-tone colourways, are offset by unique side vent and grille designs. This is also the first Range Rover with a 23-inch wheel option.
This enhanced luxury and exquisite craftsmanship extends inside too, with semi-aniline leather front seats bringing Range Rover’s already premium interior to an even higher level of luxury: accommodation comparable to private jets and yachts. And the diamond quilt design you see is unique to SV Coupé.
“The Range Rover SV Coupé is a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline,” says Gerry McGovern, Chief Design officer of Land Rover.
“With a dramatic two-door silhouette, this breath-taking four seat coupé alludes to its unique heritage whilst being thoroughly modern and contemporary. Beautifully realised, superbly engineered, the Range Rover SV Coupé delivers the most distinguished, luxurious and exclusive Range Rover ever built.”
Each SV Coupé will be hand-assembled to the client’s personal specification by the fastidious experts at the SVO Technical Centre in the UK – a first for Range Rover. But get yours fast – no more than 999 will be hand-crafted by SVO for clients worldwide, for a price of £240,000 apiece.
