Range Rover SV Coupe

Geneva Motor Show: Range Rover SV Coupe


Range Rover SV Coupe is the fastest, most luxurious and costliest Range Rover yet 

Land Rover has used the 2018 Geneva Motor Show as an opportunity to unveil the most exclusive, most powerful and poshest Range Rover to date, the Range Rover SV Coupe.

The Range Rover SV Coupe will be hand built by the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations team in the UK.

No more than 999 examples will be made, with each car tailored to customer needs. Customers will be treated to niceties such as electrically closing doors with frameless glass, semi-aniline leather seat trim with a unique diamond quilted pattern and a choice of interior colour contrasts to ensure one’s Range Rover SV Coupe is truly unique.

Passengers will be able to luxuriate in 20-way adjustable heated and cooled front seats at the front and 10 way adjustable seats at the rear. The chairs are said to be more comfortable than those in the standard Range Rover, with Land Rover using a soft foam stuffing. Additional highlights include a 12 inch driver’s display, a heads up display and a thumping 1700w 23 speaker, Meridian sound system.

It’s a similar story on the outside, with a huge range of colours – Land Rover says there are up to 100 different colours available – and if that’s not enough, they even offer a “match to sample” option, so you could coordinate your Range Rover with your favourite garment or accessory. One noteworthy colour is “Liquesence” which Land Rover describes as a liquid metal finish another first for Range Rover, as are enormous 23 inch wheels.

That bespoke body is fashioned from aluminium to help keep weight down.

Up front, there are LED headlamps with laser diodes which Land Rover says are five times brighter than standard headlights.

The Range Rover SV Coupe will be the fastest and most powerful Range Rover ever. Power will be served up by a supercharged 5.0 litre V8 that produces an astonishing 416kW and 700Nm that will slingshot this Range Rover from 0-100km/h in just 6.2 seconds, making the SV Coupe the fastest Range Rover ever. All that power is sent to all four wheels via an eight speed auto.

Land Rover says that although the Range Rover SV Coupe is still capable off road – although we’re not sure why you’d take it off-road – it is more road focused than its conventional Range Rover sibling.

The price? Almost $500,000, and Australian deliveries will begin in the first quarter of 2019.
