Range Rover SV Coupe interior

Range Rover has announced it will introduce a new flagship model called the SV Coupé. Now, before you allow your head to come apart like a meat-filled piñata at the thought of Range Rover building a car, recall that upscale automakers have all agreed that literally anything can be considered a coupe now. The new Range Rover should have about as much in common with traditional coupes as Chevrolet’s K5 Blazer.

Limited to no more than 999 examples, the model pays tribute to Land Rover’s original two-door Range Rover for the company’s 70th birthday. The automaker promises unparalleled refinement on the inside and and elegant styling outside. It’s a vehicle for those of discerning tastes and a flush bank account — definitely not for plebeian society

As the nomenclature of the brand makes it impossible not to sound like a bit of an imbecile when discussing it, you’ll have to bear with us for the following explanation. The SV Coupé will be based upon the Land Rover luxury sub-brand’s primer model, the Range Rover. More specifically, it will share some DNA with the Range Rover SVAutobiography — which, at $177,200, is Rover’s most expensive model.

So it’s a two-door premium SUV using the architecture of the Range Rover that is likely to borrow the 557-horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine from the SV. Land Rover says the model will be produced at the SV Technical Centre in Ryton-on-Dunsmore in Warwickshire, UK, and will be the most expensive model in the brand’s 70-year history.

“The Range Rover SV Coupé is a highly compelling design with peerless refinement and uncompromised sophistication from its breathtaking exterior proportions to its sumptuous, beautifully appointed, interior,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s head of design. “This is a vehicle that will resonate on an emotional level.”

Thus far, the automaker was only willing to share a bird’s-eye view of the interior. However, the vehicle will make its official debut at the Geneva International Motor Show this March.
