Land Rover teases fancy interior of Range Rover SV Coupe, debut is set for 2018 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on January 24, 2018

We are aware that Land Rover is currently working on a two-door Range Rover, and it was just recently that the first official teaser of the new Range Rover SV Coupe came out. This includes images of the high end SUV’s luxurious cabin. And before you ask, the latest model will make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March.

With the images we saw online, we could already tell that the Range Rover SV Coupe would be a highly pleasant vehicle to ride in. Up front, the seats are covered in quite, diamond quilted leather, with the same materials covering the dashboard. And in the rear, the same chairs are covered in a dark navy blue shade instead, giving it contrast, and at the same time, a luxurious feel. The center console has a wood trim that stretches to the entire length of the cabin, and this is paired with metallic trim that gives it a high-end appearance and feel.

It seems like the infotainment system will get the design of the Range Rover Velar. There is also a dial on the center console that probably controls off-road settings in the Range Rover, suggesting that it will have the ability to drive on different surfaces.

Though we already have spy shots of the new Range Rover SV Coupe being tested in extreme conditions, the photos do not fully reveal the car’s exterior yet, though we kind of know what to expect from it. It seems like the front fascia features slight revisions over the four-door model. This includes a new shape of the grille and a fresh set of headlights. When looking at it from the side, the wheelbase looks a little shorter than the outgoing model. It also looks like it now gets a steeper rake for the glass in the hatchback.

Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division will only produce a total of 999 examples of the Range Rover SV Coupe, and each one will be made by hand. This model could also be ordered by anyone from anywhere in the world.

A couple of months back, there were rumours that went around regarding a range-topping Range Rover SV Coupe that will soon be available. And since there will be a combination of exclusivity and high end finishes in this model, prices could go as high as 200,000 pounds (around $280,000 at current exchange rates).

The two-door Range Rover marks a return to form for the venerable model. The SUV was only available in a coupe variant from 1970 to 1981 and it remained as an option for years after that.

Who amongst you are excited to get your hands on this limited edition, ultra luxurious two door version of the Range Rover SUV?
