The brand says the new model has been created to pay homage to the original Range Rover, which was launched as a two-door only. A two-door Range Rover has been off the menu for quite some time, but the automaker has not forgotten about it; given the popularity of coupe-styled SUVs, now may be as good a time as any for a comeback.
Land Rover has revealed it is building a two-door version of its Range Rover SUV that will be limited to just 999 examples.
A single image revealing the interior's four-seat layout has been released; it shows front and rear seats are trimmed in different-coloured leather.
The first images of the auto will be revealed on March 6, with the vehicle getting its public debut at 11:45am at the Geneva Motor Show that day. We're also curious to see whether this model will feature any other exterior details that will set it apart from four-door models. Stay tuned to DriveSpark as we bring you full coverage of the upcoming 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Each will be hand-built at the SV Technical Centre in Warwickshire, and sold for a pricetag that'll no doubt be best described as reassuringly expensive.More news: Sanchez Undergoing Manchester United Medical Now, Unveiling 'Likely On Tuesday'
Land Rover head of design, Gerry McGovern, described the new model as a "highly compelling design with peerless refinement and uncompromised sophistication from its breathtaking exterior proportions to its sumptuous, beautifully appointed, interior".
The SV Coupe is part of the "natural progression" of Range Rover toward a "more tailored, more bespoke, refined and luxurious" line-up.
Called the Range Rover SV Coupé, the new auto will be manufactured by Land Rover's SVO - Special Vehicle Operations - department in Warwickshire.
