(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.

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.

This detailing continues to both the front and rear centre consoles, with distinctive materials for the cup holder and socket covers.

Incredible performance, unrivalled comfort

l405_16my_engine_section_lores

Replacing the Autobiography Black at the top of the Range Rover line-up, SVAutobiography is available with a sensational 550PS V8 supercharged engine, combining peerless luxury with the most powerful engine in Range Rover’s history. The all-aluminium 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine, used to power the high performance Range Rover Sport SVR, has been re-tuned for the SVAutobiography. The potent engine produces an outstanding 550PS and 680Nm of torque, noticeable increases of 40PS and 55Nm respectively, compared with existing V8 supercharged Range Rover derivatives.

With maximum torque available at 3,500rpm and a smooth and sophisticated ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, the SVAutobiography provides a breath-taking blend of performance, in-gear flexibility and refinement, no matter how challenging the terrain.

The 550PS derivative has been engineered and optimised for unparalleled comfort and refinement, and features Brembo front brake callipers in gloss black finish.

Alongside the V8 supercharged engine, SVAutobiography customers can choose from the SDV6 Hybrid and SDV8 powertrain derivatives with increases in efficiency and performance for the 2016 Model Year.

Desirable enhancements across the 2016 Model Year Range Rover line-up

Complementing the introduction of SVAutobiography, a comprehensive suite of revisions underlines Range Rover’s status as the ultimate luxury SUV.

Courtesy of detailed calibration changes, the SDV6 Hybrid benefits from even lower CO2 emissions, and SDV8 derivatives are now offered with advanced stop-start technology, delivering 33.6mpg and CO2 emissions of 219g/km.

Unrivalled off-road capability is a hallmark of the Range Rover line-up but Land Rover has provided even greater confidence for customers by extending the availability of its innovative All-Terrain Progress Control system to include SDV8 derivatives.

Underlining its status as the most luxurious SUV in the world, the 2016 Model Year Range Rover benefits from a host of additional and improved convenience features. These include a new, improved Surround Camera System with crisper graphics for enhanced clarity and an integrated washer jet for the rear camera.

The new Gesture Tailgate standard feature provides hands-free access to the luggage area while Automatic Access Height automatically lowers the vehicle once parked, for improved entry and exit.

Land Rover’s InControl™ technologies continue to develop and now offer even greater smartphone connectivity, user convenience and market availability. InControl™ Remote Premium allows owners to remotely check the fuel level, lock and unlock the doors and flash the lights or sound the horn to help identify the vehicle in crowded car parks, all using a smartphone app.

Priced from £148,900/$199,495, the Range Rover SVAutobiography will be on sale from summer 2015. The updated Range Rover 2016 Model Year line-up will also be on sale this summer.
