Range Rover’s New SV Coupe Is A £240,000 Statement

Land Rover is looking to define a new genre of SUV with the introduction of the Range Rover SV Coupe, the only full-size luxury two-door SUV in the world.

Tasked with its creation were Land Rover Design, together with the SVO (Special Vehicle Operations) team. After putting down their crayons, the finished product featured a stylish and exclusive exterior as well as a luxurious cabin, offering extensive personalization options.

“The Range Rover SV Coupe is a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline. With a dramatic two-door silhouette, this breath-taking four seat coupe alludes to its unique heritage while being thoroughly modern and contemporary,” stated design chief, Gerry McGovern. “Beautifully realized and superbly engineered, the Range Rover SV Coupe delivers the most distinguished, luxurious and exclusive Range Rover ever built.”

In order to give this SUV a powerful road presence, Land Rover relied on signature features such as the floating roof, continuous waist design and tapering tail, but also on the frameless glass doors, panoramic roof and unique side vent and grille designs. This is also the first Range Rover model to come with a 23-inch wheel option.

Inside, the SV Coupe boasts semi-aniline leather seats with a diamond quilt design that’s unique to this model. Each unit will be hand-built to the customer’s personal specification, as buyers will be able to choose from four front-to-rear contrasting interior paintjobs as well as a range of single-tone interior colors.

Altogether, there are over 100 paint colors to choose from, plus unique hues, contrast stitching, headrest embroidery, door handle and tread plate engraving, as well as semi-precious metal badging.

Powered by a 565 PS 5.0-liter supercharged V8, the SV Coupe is the fastest-ever full-size Range Rover, with a top speed of 165 mph (265 km/h), while its 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) acceleration time is 5 seconds flat. Compared to the standard Range Rover, the SV Coupe sits closer to the road by 8 mm (0.31 inches), yet boasts a 900 mm (35.4 inches) maximum wading depth and a maximum towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes (7,716 lbs).

Sales for the Range Rover SV Coupe are expected to start in Q4 of 2018, with a starting price tag of £240,000 ($333,000) in the UK.

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    a modern classic

  • Jason Panamera

    That price gave me hear attack. I’d rather buy Genesis G90 and give rest of this cash to poor people, than buy this RR.

    • donald seymour

      I like your thinking.

  • klowik

    Luxury SUV offers backseat passengers with inconvenience to exit?? Two door SUV just doesn’t make sense!!

  • Belthronding

    They are selling this over 240k pound,because there are at least 999 poteantial people willing to buy it,other than that makes no sense.
    Frankly i was expecting some special and limited edition products from RR but this sounds a bit weird to me.

    • Make that 2000 serious buyer and 4000 interests. That’s how special edition numbers usually come from.

  • The rendering that CS post earlier looks same with this. It looks good and it has pedigree but I won’t buy it.

  • wait a minute

    a RR Velar would have worked better as a coupe IMO without the need to retool the pillars.

  • Leconte Dave

    End up on the side of the highway with style

    • donald seymour

      Why, Laugh out Loud. I’m done. You made my day.

      • Leconte Dave

        Thank you thank you lol

  • Bash

    Wow! I love it! But that price tag!!!!

  • What a stupid car… My bet like on the Evoque 3 doors, takes ages to access with difficulty the back seats.

    • Matt

      Practicality isn’t really the point of this car.

  • LWOAP

    I still say the RR Sport would have been a better option for being a two door.

  • erly5

    Utterly pointless and stupidly expensive

    • LWOAP

      It is. But it will still sell. I know it’s a limited run which might explain the price tag. But, still, $333,000 USD for a two door SUV is crazy.

  • Honda NSX-R

    It’s cool but I would never pay 240,000 pounds for it.

  • Matt

    Except the interior is completely different and most of the exterior is new as well…

  • europeon

    For that money they could have made the effort to make directional rims.

    • LWOAP

      Well each one will be personalized to customer specs so one of them will have them. I’m willing to bet one of them will pop up at ابوظبى موتورز.

      They had that boat tailed Rolls Royce after all.

  • MarketAndChurch

    The most beautiful Range Rover, and they didn’t ruin it with two-tone paint scheme. But the price needs to be 100k cheaper, at a minimum. Which really sucks, because at 120,000, they would not only sell a lot of these, but would have something new to bring the average Land Rover buyer into showrooms with.

    • Because this is limited edition car. I’m sure they testing the market with this. Don’t rule out regular production 2 door RR for next gen car.

  • Grumpy

    I can only imagine how hard it would be to get into when in a parking lot. Door is huge.

  • Nordschleife

    I would love if someone specifies this in a dark green with a tan interior like British vehicles in the past.

  • SteersUright

    Why not just get the better looking 4-door and save a ton of money?

    • Matt

      Because this will be purchased by wealthy customers who value exclusivity over ‘saving money’. Same reason any luxury car exists…

  • botornot387

    This is nice, but not 300k nice. And at that price point, it is compromised by no rear doors and no unique qualities on the exterior. The interior is beautiful, but this was a real missed opportunity from SVO to do something a little more radical. The proportions with the doors also look off. Doubtful people will be running in to place orders on this unless you are a hardcore RR fan, however, thats going to be a stretch for those customers too with so many appealing vehicles on the market today.
