Pretoria – Nearly 50 years ago, Land Rover created the luxury SUV sector with the introduction of the Range Rover. Now it’s defining a new genre with what it calls the "world’s first full-size luxury SUV coupé" - the limited-edition two-door Range Rover SV Coupe.

The new SUV was created by Land Rover Design and Special Vehicle Operations.

No more than 999 will be hand-crafted by SVO for clients worldwide – with an extremely limited number headed to South Africa.

Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover, said: "The Range Rover SV Coupé is a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline. With a dramatic two-door silhouette, this breath-taking four seat coupe alludes to its unique heritage whilst being thoroughly modern and contemporary.

"Beautifully realised, superbly engineered, the Range Rover SV Coupe delivers the most distinguished, luxurious and exclusive Range Rover ever built."

Engine capacity (cc)4999.7
CylindersV8 Supercharged petrol
Power (kW)416
Torque (Nm)700
Transmission8-speed automatic, Permanent All-Wheel Drive, two-speed transfer box

The signature floating roof, continuous waist and tapering tail are instantly recognizable Range Rover DNA. 

Range Rover says: "In combination with the panoramic roof, light floods into the cabin, accentuating the relaxed, sophisticated and contemporary ambience."

Carefully curated body colour combinations, including a new contour graphic available in four duo-tone colourways, are offset by unique side vent and grille designs. This is also the first Range Rover with a 23" wheel option.

Gradated diamond quilt design is unique to SV Coupé.

Each SV Coupé will be hand-assembled to the client’s personal specification by the fastidious experts at the SVO Technical Centre in the UK – a first for Range Rover.
