“The Range Rover SV Coupe is a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline,” said Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover. “With a dramatic two-door silhouette, this breath-taking four-seat Coupe alludes to its unique heritage while being thoroughly modern and contemporary. Beautifully realized and superbly engineered, the Range Rover SV Coupe delivers the most distinguished, luxurious and exclusive Range Rover ever built.”
No… the world needs 999 of them, according to the folks at Range Rover. Created by Land Rover Design and Special Vehicle Operations, the SV Coupe as it’s called is a work of design, craftsmanship, and capability. It boasts a 557 horsepower, 516 lb-ft, supercharged 5.0L V-8 engine, hits 60 from not in just 5.0 seconds, and is the fastest full-size Range Rover ever built with a top speed of 165 miles per hour. Every detail has been up-scaled, from the 23-inch wheels to the opulently appointed interior. Semi-aniline leather front seats with a diamond quilt design elevate the premium interior to a new level of luxury once reserved for private jets and yachts.
Despite being beautifully crafted, the SV Coupe retains the unique abilities that make a Rover special. These include the same off-road prowess of the vehicles stable mates (with almost three fee of maximum water wading depth), fantastic on-road handling, and a maximum trailer towing capacity of 7,716 pounds.
Each SV Coupe will be hand-assembled by the expert technicians at Land Rover’s SVO Technical Center in the UK, which is a first for Range Rover. Sales will start in the fourth-quarter of 2018 and we expect the allotment to sell out very quickly.
