50 years after land rover introduced the first range rover, and consequently creating the luxury SUV sector, the british automaker smashes another milestone, defining a new genre with the world’s first full-size luxury SUV coupérevealed at the 2018 geneva international motor show, the limited edition two-door release is the fastest, most powerful and, with only 999 of them being made, is the most exclusive car the marque has ever made.

built to celebrate land rover‘s 70th anniversary, the SV coupé is everything you’d expect, minus the two doors and then some. as the SV badge indicates, this is from the company’s special vehicles operations, the automaker’s special-projects division signifying the model’s uniqueness. land rover claims the SV coupé will do 0 to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds and reach a top speed of 165 mph. not bad considering its powered by an exhilarating 565PS 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol powertrain, the most powerful ever placed in a full-size range rover.

 

 

the suspension has been upped a notch too. tuned to provide a more driver-focused edge than the standard range rover, with a ride height lowered by 8mm, it will remain composed and comfortable at all times. plus, the SV coupé loses none of range rover’s legendary all-terrain ability, with 900mm maximum wading depth – and a maximum towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes.

 

 

in combination with the panoramic roof, light floods into the cabin, accentuating the contemporary ambience. semi-aniline leather front seats with a gradated diamond quil design unique to the SV coupé create an interior comparable to the level of luxury in private jets and yachts.

 

jaguar range rover has carefully curated a selection of body colour combinations, including a new contour graphic available in four duo-tone colourways, offset by unique side vent and grille designs. clients can choose from four front-to-rear contrast interior colourways, or a range of single-tone interior colours. both are complemented by a choice of three elegant wood veneers.

 

 

a first for range rover is nautica, which carefully balances heritage craftsmanship with new technology, fusing walnut and sycamore. optional paint finishes include liquesence, which brings a liquid metal finish to range rover for the first time. this is also the first range rover with a 23-inch wheel option.

 

and the tech is somewhat impressive. incontrol touch pro duo infotainment includes a 10-inch display, 10-inch control panel and 12-inch interactive driver display, while a 10-inch full-colour head-up display shows turn information including street names, slope and wheel information, cruise control, RPM and gear information. the 1700w, 23-speaker, meridian 3D signature sound system with dual-channel subwoofer has trifield 3D technology for optimum sound quality.
