Land Rover’s debuting the two-door Range Rover SV Coupe at this year’s Geneva Motor Show
Those of you with long memories or thoroughly immersed in Range Rover lore will remember the original version’s party piece – two doors. When the Range Rover was originally introduced in 1970, Land Rover meant it as a more luxurious alternative to the Series Land Rovers. Think about it – all the Earth-conquering off-road ability with the luxury of Buckingham Palace.
Until 1981, you could only get the Range Rover as a two-door wagon from the factory. After that, a four-door version came along, and later supplanted the original version. In later generations, you couldn’t get a two-door version at all. But that’s about to change right now.
Today, Land Rover announced that they’re producing a Range Rover SV Coupe on an extremely limited run. Only 999 models will be available worldwide, and the only teaser image we have shows the interior. The Range Rover SV Coupe will be hand-assembled by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations in Warwickshire, UK. Why is this coming along now? Well, JLR is building this model in celebration of the Land Rover brand’s 70th anniversary.
Range Rover SV Coupe Will Make Its World Debut in Geneva
According to Jerry McGovern, Land Rover’s Chief Design Officer, “This is a vehicle that will resonate on an emotional level”. It will certainly be a special car in the Range Rover’s portfolio, and should be a fitting homage to the original two-door launched in 1970.
Land Rover hasn’t released any additional information right now. However, they’re planning to release a full set of images and specifications for the Range Rover SV Coupe at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6th.
