Land Rover has pulled the wraps off its limited edition Range Rover SV Coupe Sport. Just 999 examples will be built, each based on a shortened version of the full-sized Range Rover platform and powered by a 557bhp 5.0-litre V8. Each model will be hand built at the brand’s Warwickshire SVO facility and will come with an eye-watering price tag of $333,000.
With a heavy emphasis on luxury and exclusivity, the SV Coupe has been designed to be a four-wheeled version of a luxury yacht or private jet, as well as go head to head with machines such as the forthcoming Rolls Royce Cullinan. Land Rover’s stylists have done a decent job of transforming the Range Rover into a three-door model, with the end result taking its cues from the Range Rover Evoque Coupe, yet on a grander scale.
For instance, there’s the same sloping roofline and steeply raked tailgate, plus the rear side glass treatment is similar. And this is much more than a simple cut ‘n’ shut job, with carry over panels from the standard car limited to the clamshell bonnet and lower tailgate. Other visual highlights include the metal vents cut into the front wings, the optional 23-inch alloy wheels (that largest ever officially offered) and a choice of 16 special paint finishes – although SVO will create bespoke hues for customers.
