(Geneva, Switzerland – 6 March 2018) 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 the world’s first full-size luxury SUV coupe: the limited-edition two-door Range Rover SV Coupe.

Range Rover SV Coupe (21)

Created by Land Rover Design and Special Vehicle Operations, SV Coupe is an exemplar of Range Rover design, craftsmanship and capability. It features a seductive body allied to the next-generation of cabin luxury – with the peerless all-terrain ability expected from Range Rover. No more than 999 will be hand-crafted by SVO for clients worldwide.

Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover, said: “The Range Rover SV Coupe 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 while being thoroughly modern and contemporary. Beautifully realized and superbly engineered, the Range Rover SV Coupe delivers the most distinguished, luxurious and exclusive Range Rover ever built.”

Beautiful proportions with a powerful stance give SV Coupe unrivalled on-road presence. The signature floating roof, continuous waist and tapering tail are instantly recognizable Range Rover DNA, yet are expressed in a unique way for this exclusive addition to the Range Rover family.

SV Coupe’s purity of line is perfectly complemented by elegant power-close doors with frameless glass. 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-inch wheel option.

Enhanced luxury and exquisite craftsmanship extends inside too, with semi-aniline leather front seats bringing Range Rover’s already premium interior to a new level of luxury: accommodation comparable to private jets and yachts. Their gradated diamond quilt design is unique to SV Coupe.

Each SV Coupe 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.

John Edwards, Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director, said: “The introduction of the new SV Coupe brings a new level of individual expression to the Range Rover portfolio and builds on the success of Special Vehicle Operations’ existing bespoke Range Rover programme. Feedback from SV clients who have already seen the vehicle in confidential commissioning sessions has been overwhelmingly positive.”

SV Coupe clients can choose from four front-to-rear contrast interior colourways, or a range of single-tone interior colours. Both are complemented by a choice of three elegant wood veneers. A first for Range Rover is Nautica, which carefully balances heritage craftsmanship with new technology, fusing walnut and sycamore.

Optional paint finishes include Liquesence, which brings a sensational liquid metal finish to Range Rover for the first time.

Additionally, Special Vehicle Operations’ bespoke personalization team offers SV Coupe clients the opportunity to indulge their desire to create a unique vehicle to their exacting taste, granting access to 100 more paint colours, plus unique ‘match to sample’ hues, with a range of finishes; duo-tone front and rear leather colours with a bespoke quilt pattern; contrast stitching; headrest embroidery; doorhandle and treadplate engraving and semi-precious metal badging.

Range Rover SV Coupe (30)

SV Coupe is also the fastest-ever full-size Range Rover, with a 165mph top speed. Powered by an exhilarating 565PS 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 petrol powertrain, the most powerful ever placed in a full-size Range Rover, means SV Coupe hits 60mph in just 5 seconds.

Mark Stanton, Special Vehicle Operations Director, said: “As you’d expect from Range Rover, the engineering integrity in SV Coupe is more than skin-deep. This is a meticulously honed vehicle that’s designed for SV clients who love driving.”

The suspension is tuned to provide a more driver-focused edge than the standard Range Rover, with a ride height lowered by 8mm, but will remain composed and comfortable at all times. Plus, the SV Coupe loses none of Range Rover’s legendary all-terrain ability, with 900mm maximum wading depth – and a maximum towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes.

Range Rover SV Coupe sales are anticipated to start from the fourth quarter of 2018, priced from £240,000 in the UK.

RANGE ROVER SV COUPE: IN DETAIL

COMPELLING BODY DESIGN

With the exception of the bonnet and lower tailgate, all of the two-door SV Coupe’s aluminium exterior panels are new, as are the front and rear bumpers. A new two-part grille features Brunel Metallic rear mesh overlaid with Bright Chrome front mesh and a Satin Indus Silver metal surround, while Bright Chrome/Black Knurled Range Rover bonnet and tailgate script is handcrafted in the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter.

Noble Chrome metal side vents with Brunel Metallic mesh and Satin Indus Silver metal surrounds complement frameless doors with Power Close functionality and Bright Chrome embellished body colour door handles.

Pixel-laser LED headlights with 144 LEDs and four laser diodes (market-dependent fitment) provide five times higher luminance than standard LED lights on Laser Supplementary High Beam – over 500m, operational above 80kph when no other lights are detected.

SUBLIME PAINTWORK

Eight body colours are available, in gloss or satin effects, four offered for the first time on Range Rover: Constellation, Parallax, Liquesence and Obsidian; and four from the SV Premium Palette: Ethereal, Flux, Valloire and Desire. The Liquesence option brings liquid metal finish to Range Rover for the first time. SV Coupe clients can also specify one of four exclusive duo-tone gloss Contour Graphic options: Valloire/Flux, Valloire/Ethereal, Parallax/Ethereal, Obsidian/Desire.

Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover, said: “Accentuating Range Rover SV Coupe’s proportions, and available as a unique feature for the first time, the new Contour Graphic is created by applying a contrasting paint to the flanks of the vehicle. Starting at the side vent, it flows rearwards and around to the opposite vent, and offers customers the opportunity to further personalise their specification.”

Range Rover SV Coupe (18)

The 16 optional SV Premium Palette colours offer a range of finishes including tri-coat, tinted clear coat, pearlescent, ChromaFlair and satin matte. Further colours are available as part of Special Vehicle Operations’ bespoke personalisation service offered exclusively at Range Rover SV Coupe commissioning events or by appointment at the SVO Technical Centre in Warwickshire, UK.

SUMPTUOUS INTERIOR

Range Rover SV Coupe (23)

Stunning to the eye, sumptuous to the touch, SV Coupe’s interior is a light, contemporary, space where attention to detail is paramount. Four curated duo-tone colourways, contrasting light to dark and front to rear, are offered: Orchid/Eclipse, Orchid/Vintage Tan, Brogue/Ebony and Cirrus/Lunar. Four single-tone colours are also available: Ebony, Lunar, Eclipse and Vintage Tan.

The heated and cooled 20-way electrically adjustable front and 10-way electrically adjustable rear seats, wrapped in specially selected semi-aniline leather from a single tannery established in 1905, feature a unique gradated diamond quilt design. Concurrent with the latest Range Rover line, SV Coupe has wider, deeper seat foams and specially developed interlayers for world-class comfort.

Nautica veneer – a first for Range Rover – combines heritage craftsmanship with a patented new form-following process to fuse walnut and sycamore. It joins three elegant wood veneer options for the steering wheel rim, door casings, centre console, instrument panel and loadspace floor: Nautica, Natural Black Ash and Santos Palisander.

Range Rover SV Coupe (24)

InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment includes a 10-inch display, 10-inch control panel and 12-inch Interactive Driver Display, while a 10-inch full-colour Head-Up Display shows turn information including street names, slope and wheel information, cruise control, RPM and gear information. The 1700w, 23-speaker, Meridian 3D Signature Sound System with dual-channel subwoofer has Trifield 3D technology for optimum sound quality.

POWERFUL PERFORMANCE

Jaguar I-PACE, Geneva 2018

SV Coupe features Range Rover’s most powerful 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 petrol powertrain producing 565PS, 700Nm, mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission with rotary drive selector and paddle-shift. That delivers a 0-60mph time of just 5.0 seconds (0-100kph in 5.3 seconds) and a 165mph top speed.

Permanent four-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer box and Active Locking Rear Differential ensures effortless go-anywhere progress, assisted by Terrain Response 2 featuring Dynamic, Eco, Comfort, Grass Gravel Snow, Mud and Ruts, Sand and Rock Crawl programmes.

REWARDING DYNAMICS

SV Coupe’s ride height is lowered by 8mm over the standard Range Rover, to deliver enhanced dynamic performance and aesthetics. It automatically lowers by 15mm at cruising speeds of 65mph or above to enhance stability and minimise fuel consumption.

Its five air suspension height settings include: Access Height (-50mm max below normal ride height), Off-Road 1 Ride Height (+40mm max above normal ride height, up to 80kph), Off-Road 2 Ride Height (+75mm max above normal ride height, up to 50kph) – additional 30-40mm automatic increase if obstacle detected, and a further manually selectable 30-40mm increase above that.

Four alloy wheel options from 21-inch to 23-inch include two new forged wheels – the 23-inch wheel, a two-tone silver polished six split-spoke design with 275/40 R23 all-terrain tyres, is a first for Range Rover. The 22-inch dark grey polished five split-spoke with polished finish is also new.

EXTRA CARE

Unique to Range Rover SV Coupe is a five-year Care Package, available either as standard or as an optional extra in most markets. An extension to the existing Land Rover warranty is accompanied by five-year servicing and maintenance plans, which cover scheduled services plus wiper blade, brake disc and pad replacement.

(MAHWAH, NJ) – August 9, 2016 – Land Rover has reinforced its positioning of Range Rover as the world’s finest all-terrain SUV with the introduction of advanced driving technologies and an all-new model from Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) – the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic.

Since it redefined the luxury SUV sector more than 46 years ago, the Range Rover has achieved more than one million sales and sits at the pinnacle of the Land Rover family. A unique combination of peerless refinement, timeless design and unrivalled all-terrain capability has seen Range Rover products used to transport Royalty, and to undertake grueling expeditions.

The original Classic model debuted in 1970 and over four generations the luxury SUV has established itself as a design reference, representing the ultimate in all-terrain luxury. New for the 2017 model year, the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic brings new levels of on-road performance to the Range Rover, powered by a 550HP supercharged V8 engine.

Building on the successful launch of the long-wheelbase Range Rover SVAutobiography, the SVAutobiography Dynamic is available exclusively in standard wheelbase specification and comes fitted with specially configured suspension designed to optimize its road holding agility while maintaining the vehicle’s trademark refinement, comfort and off-road capability.

2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic (5)

The 2017 model year Range Rover also debuts a selection of innovative new driver assistance technologies. These features include Advanced Tow Assist, an intelligent driver aid, which takes the stress out of reversing a trailer; as well as Intelligent Speed Limiter, which automatically adjusts the vehicle’s speed to suit the speed limit using Traffic Sign Recognition technology.

In addition, Driver Condition Monitor and Blind Spot Assist – which is designed to gently steer the vehicle back into its lane if sensors detect the driver is steering into the path of another road user – are added to an extensive selection of advanced driver assistance features.

Interior changes include the addition of a new larger 10.2-inch touchscreen display, powered by the Land Rover InControl® Touch Pro™ system. The pinch and zoom tablet-style touchscreen is powered by an ultra-fast Intel quad-core processor and provides a host of new features including customizable homepages, enhanced satellite navigation functions and instant access to the driver’s favorite apps.

Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer, said: “Range Rover has been the world’s leading luxury SUV since its debut more than 46 years ago. Design is fundamental to this vehicle and the latest refinements reinforce its status as the ultimate luxury SUV. By offering our customers more choice, more technology and more power, we ensure Range Rover remains in a class of its own.”

New SVAutobiography Dynamic added to the Range Rover line-up

2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic (10)

Shared with the Range Rover SVAutobiography, the SVAutobiography Dynamic features a potent 550HP 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine delivering 502 ft-lb of torque through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

The interior of the SVAutobiography Dynamic builds upon the desirability and refinement expected by Range Rover customers. Inside owners will find the front 20-way adjustable leather seats finished in a unique diamond quilted pattern with contrast stitching are available in four exclusive color ways which complement the Ebony perforated leather headliner, giving an immediate impression of luxury.

2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic (11)

The dashboard and door panels feature a Grand Black veneer, with an additional Red keyline finish on the door panels. In addition, key features, such as the rotary shift controller, start/stop button and pedals have a sophisticated knurled finish. Underlining the dynamic enhancements made to create the SVAutobiography Dynamic, the paddle shifters are finished in anodized red (except when specified with a tan interior) while the driver’s handbook is bound in quilted leather chosen to match the interior.

2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic (1)

The new addition to the range is identified by a series of unique exterior features. The side vents, hood finisher, grille, front bumper accents, Range Rover script and tailgate trim are all finished in Graphite Atlas. Customers have a choice of 21- and 22-inch alloy wheel designs, as well as three unique finishes. The SVAutobiography Dynamic is also the first Range Rover available with eye-catching red brake calipers and Brembo brake technology.

2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic (3)

The Jaguar Land Rover SVO division has fine-tuned the suspension to achieve the optimum combination of on-road performance and comfort. Revisions to the suspension provide a lower ride height (0.3-inches/8mm lower) and enhanced tuning which offers more immediate chassis responses.

The SVAutobiography Dynamic also features two driver-focused technologies designed to deliver improved body control and agility. Dynamic Response improves vehicle handling and occupant comfort by reducing the amount of body lean during cornering through the use of active anti-sway bars. The system controls the front and rear axles independently, delivering increased low-speed agility, superior high-speed stability and greater steering precision(3). Adaptive Dynamics active damping monitors vehicle movements up to 500 times a second, changing damper valving settings in response to driver inputs and changes in the road surface; providing greater control without compromising the vehicle’s peerless refinement.

2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic (8)

In keeping with its more purposeful character, the SVAutobiography Dynamic features bright chrome quad tailpipes which enhance its distinctive V8 soundtrack.

Mark Stanton, Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, said: “The Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic has been specially developed by the Special Vehicle Operations team to deliver a more engaging driving experience. It delivers the ultimate combination of performance and Range Rover luxury, befitting its unique position in the portfolio.”

2017 Range Rover adds convenience through innovative technology

The Range Rover is the ultimate expression of luxury and 2017 model year customers can access more advanced driver assistance technologies than ever before. Advanced Tow Assist debuts and assists the driver with the potentially difficult task of reversing while towing a trailer.

other_l405_k17_n-062ce_glUsing the vehicle’s existing Surround Camera System this new technology enables drivers to guide a trailer into position with minimal effort. By following the trajectory lines overlaid on an image from the rear-facing camera displayed on the central touchscreen, Advanced Tow Assist is able to steer the vehicle to follow the path selected by the driver using the Terrain Response 2 rotary controller.

Advanced Tow Assist is designed to assist even the most inexperienced drivers to maneuver a trailer into position– the intelligent set-up even alerts the driver if they are approaching a jack-knife situation.

SPECIALIST TECHNOLOGY ENHANCES ALL-TERRAIN CREDENTIALS

Peerless all-terrain capability is a cornerstone of the Range Rover family and the new 2017 model year Range Rover adds a pair of new technologies designed to reinforce its off-road credentials:

Low Traction Launch is a manually selectable driving mode designed to assist drivers when pulling away from a standstill on slippery surfaces such as wet grass, snow or ice(2). By controlling the amount of torque that can be applied by the driver, the system reduces the likelihood of wheelspin to maintain traction and ensure smooth acceleration.

The feature can be accessed independently through the central touchscreen and the driver is prompted to engage Low Traction Launch whenever Grass/Gravel/Snow mode is selected using Terrain Response 2. The system remains active until the vehicle reaches 18.6 mph (30km/h).

All-Terrain Info Center relays useful information about the vehicle’s configuration and is the hub to access a number of driving and off-road features using the touchscreen. These features include displays for vehicle geometry, drive assist controls, slope assist and wheel information.

This evolution of the Land Rover 4x4i provides the customer with clear and easy access to all off-road features.

IMPROVED CONNECTIVITY AND INTUITIVE INTERACTIVITY

2017 Range Rover InControl Touch Pro (1)

The introduction of Land Rover InControl® Touch Pro™ infotainment is a significant enhancement to 2017 model year Range Rover. The system delivers improved satellite navigation functionality and connectivity while its intuitive operation is augmented by the new larger 10.2-inch touchscreen display.

InControl Touch Pro introduces a series of new app services to Range Rover. InControl Remote allows customers to remotely control vehicle functions such as activating the climate control to cool or heat the car ahead of departure, set and deactivate the alarm, and even start the engine. The app will alert owners if their vehicle alarm has been triggered.

Additional InControl Touch Pro Services include live apps that can be downloaded to the system to provide information such as weather reporting and flight tracking.

Improved satellite navigation and services

As part of the new InControl Touch Pro™ system fitted to 2017 model year Range Rover, the fully integrated satellite navigation has been extensively developed with a range of new features including door-to-door routing(3). The comprehensive system allows customers to set a destination on the Land Rover-dedicated smartphone Route Planner app which can navigate owners to their vehicle, before transferring further directions to the in-vehicle system. Once parked close to their destination, the system will switch back to the smartphone to guide owners to their chosen location on foot.

Commute mode automatically learns frequently used routes, such as the journey to work, and recommends the best route dependent on live traffic data. Meanwhile, the sharing function allows owners to share their destination, arrival time and current location with friends, family and colleagues.

The driver is also able to view a partial or full navigation screen within the Virtual Instrument Display, depending on their preference. Rear passengers can also view the journey time and distance to destination using the built-in rear seat entertainment system and even browse navigation maps and send suggested destinations to the driver, who can choose to reject or accept them using the central touchscreen display.

ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE FEATURES

The 2017 model year Range Rover introduces a host of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to the model line. Standard driver assistance technologies include Rear Park Distance Control, Cruise Control and Speed Limiter, Lane Departure Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB). AEB is an intelligent technology that, when activated, uses a forward facing camera to detect a risk of collision and warn the driver of potential danger. If the driver fails to respond to the warning, the AEB system is designed to apply full emergency braking to slow or stop the vehicle.

An additional, optional, Drive Pack includes existing features such as Blind Spot Monitor, Traffic Sign Recognition and Reverse Traffic Detection, as well as an Intelligent Speed Limiter, which uses the Traffic Sign Recognition hardware and navigation speed limit information to automatically adjust the vehicle speed to meet the prevailing speed limit.

Driver Condition Monitor is also now available, designed to analyze data such as steering inputs, road speed and time of day, to alert the driver to possible fatigue situations which may compromise driver safety.

The Drive Pro Pack takes the features from the Drive Pack and adds Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist, Intelligent Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, and Blind Spot Assist. Blind Spot Assist is designed to automatically apply gentle counter steering if the driver begins to change lanes towards a vehicle in the blind spot of the vehicle. Lane Keep Assist is another new feature for 2017 model year Range Rover. It provides gentle, corrective steering input if it detects the vehicle drifting out of the lines marking its lane.

UNIQUE COLORS AND FINISHES FOR MOST LUXURIOUS RANGE ROVER

2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic (6)

The level of personalization available for 2017 Model Year Range Rover is taken to new heights with the introduction of new exterior finishes available through Special Vehicle Operations.

A mix of 19 new colors give customers a more varied choice of metallic and pearlescent colors, all available in either gloss or satin matte finishes. Options include a wide range of traditional colors as well as bolder, more contemporary choices.

The 2017 model year Range Rover arrives at U.S. retailers later this year, with a starting price of $85,650; the 2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic is priced from $170,995.
