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 pays homage to the original car – the world’s first full-size luxury SUV – launched in 1970 and initially only available as a two-door.
Claimed to be the the first full-size luxury SUV coupé, it will be hand-assembled at Jaguar Land Rover’s SVO Technical Centre in Warwickshire and no more than 999 examples will be available worldwide.
Priced from £240,000 in the UK, it will be powered by a mighty 565PS 5.0-litre supercharged V8, capable of 0-60mph in five seconds and a top speed of 165mph.
“The Range Rover SV Coupé is a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline,” explained Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer.
“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.”
Inside, there are diamond-quilted leather seats and a wood-covered centre console running the entire length of the cabin.
“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.”
