- The Range Rover SV Coupé will see only 999 examples built.
- It will officially debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Before there were SUVs, there were Range Rovers. First introduced in 1970, they were tough expedition vehicles or tools for country life. And they had just two doors.
Now Range Rover’s parent, Land Rover, is bringing back the past with a special-edition Range Rover SV Coupé. Just 999 will be hand-built in England.
“The Range Rover SV Coupe is a highly compelling design with peerless refinement and uncompromised sophistication from its breathtaking exterior proportions to its sumptuous, beautifully appointed, interior,” design chief Gerry McGovern said in a statement.
The official debut won’t happen until the Geneva Motor Show in March, so for now we’ll have to content ourselves with a single photo and Land Rover’s declaration that “traditional skills have combined with the latest technologies throughout the cabin to exquisite effect” and that “attention to detail has been paramount.”
True, a two-door Range is idiosyncratic. But then again, so is the convertible Range Rover Evoque, also sporting just a pair of doors, and we kinda sorta liked it.
