A new Range Rover SV Coupe debuts in March in Geneva
Land Rover has showed the first images of the interior of the luxury two-door Range Rover SV Coupe, which will premiere soon – in March 2018 at the Geneva Motor Show, Auto Express informs.
Four chairs with a diagonal stitching are separated by a high wood-veneered centre console that extends from the front to the rear of the cabin. The bespoke trim distinguishes the coupe from the usual Range Rover.
It is planned to release only 999 units, assembled manually for global exports. The price is not yet known, it will roughly exceed 200,000 euros, as it will be a car with rich equipment at the level of the SV Autobiography.
The rivals of the new Range Rover will be the Bentley Continental GT and Rolls-Royce Wraith.
Spy photos show that the exterior design will resemble the four-door with its familiar boxy profile. The SUV passing the winter tests is hidden under camouflage in the pictures, but it is clear that the front doors have been extended dramatically, while the disguise incorporates a false pair of rear doors.
At the same time, the new model is a pure Range Rover, with the current full-size model’s tried and tested design cues.
The luxurious two-door version of the Range Rover is a kind of successor to the original Range Rover of 1970, which was also the two-door and got four doors in 1981.
In 1991 a two-door CSK version was released, limited to 200 copies, as a tribute to the original designer Charles Spencer King.
The Range Rover CSK was supplied with a more powerful 188-hp version of the standard 3.8-liter V8 engine and sport suspension. Inside, the CSK had a more luxurious interior with premium leather seats.
We still do not know which motors the Range Rover SV Coupe wil be equipped with. It is possible that this version will get a petrol V8 of about 565-575 hp with a compressor.
