Range Rover SV Coupe revealed at Geneva

Land Rover has revealed its limited edition Range Rover SV Coupe Sport at the Geneva Motor Show. The 2-door Range Rover will focus heavily on luxury and is limited to just 999 examples. Each model will be hand-built by the brand’s Special Vehicle Operations division (SVO) and will be priced at £240,000.

The SV will feature the brand’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8, which has been tweaked to generate 557bhp and 516lb ft. of torque. When connected to the all-wheel drive system and the eight speed automatic gearbox, the SV will produce a 5 seconds 0-60mph time and a top speed of 165mph, making this the fastest Range Rover to date. In an attempt to make the coupe more sporty to drive, the ride height has been dropped by 8mm and when travelling over 65mph the ride height drops by a further 15mm. The multi-mode Terrain Response system helps the coupe retain its off-road capabilities, which enables the car to increase its ride height by 75mm.

As well as the obvious styling changes, other external changes include metal vents in the front wings and the stunning optional 23-inch alloys. Customers will be able to choose from 16 special paint finishes, and SVO has confirmed that bespoke colours will also be produced upon request. Inside, the four-seater is treated to a broad palette of available finishes, which can be customised for the front and rear seats, leading to a ‘zoned’ effect for the interior. A variety of colour options for the quilted pattern leather are on offer as well as a variety of wood finishes for the door cards, centre console and even the luggage area.

The latest InControl Touch Duo Pro infotainment system makes an appearance, as well as a 12.3-inch TFT configurable dial pack and a full colour head-up display. A 1700W sound system from Meridian will also feature, complete with 23 speakers and a dual-channel sub-woofer.

The Range Rover SV Coupe will be priced from £240,000, with first deliveries due to commence this autumn.
