Land Rover has confirmed that it will unveil a range-topping two-door Range Rover model at the Geneva Motor Show in March as an homage to the original Range Rover of 1970 which paved the way for today?s line of luxury SUVs.
As a product of Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations the Range Rover SV Coupe will be hand built in Warwickshire in the UK with production capped at a maximum of 999 vehicles globally, and joins other limited-run SVO vehicles including the Jaguar F-Type SVR and XE Project 8.
Land Rover head of design, Gerry McGovern, described the new model as 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," he promised.
While the British firm has yet to reveal the SV Coupe's exterior styling, a single teaser image reveals a four-seat interior featuring a two-tone front-to-rear color split, joined by a full-length wood-trimmed console, with elements including Range Rover's dual touchscreen interior interface carried over from existing production models.
Little else is known about the new model, though it is expected to borrow most of its key components and aluminium construction from the current Range Rover flagship range, with a special focus on bespoke interior treatments as part of its hand-built lure.
The Range Rover SV Coupe arrives as Land Rover celebrates its 70th anniversary, with further images and details regarding powertrain and specifications of the new model expected to be rolled out in the lead up its Geneva debut.
