By Chris Thompson, 07 Mar 2018 News

Supercharged V8-powered two-door Range Rover is ‘fastest-ever full-size Range Rover’

A supercharged V8, two doors, built by Jaguar Land Rover… but it’s not an F-Type.

The Range Rover SV Coupe is the ‘fastest-ever full-size Range Rover’, with only two doors and a stonking 416kW/700Nm blown V8 courtesy of SVO.

It’ll hit 100km/h in 5.3 seconds. Not a bad way to celebrate the 50th birthday of the Range Rover.

Land Rover chief design officer Gerry McGovern agrees.

“The Range Rover SV Coupé is a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline,” McGovern says.

“With a dramatic two-door silhouette, this breath-taking four seat coupé alludes to its unique heritage whilst being thoroughly modern and contemporary.

“Beautifully realised, superbly engineered, the Range Rover SV Coupé delivers the most distinguished, luxurious and exclusive Range Rover ever built.”

To further its unique nature, customisation options for the SV are seemingly endless.

SVO offers “100 more paint colours, 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; door handle and tread plate engraving and semi-precious metal badging.”

One such option is the ‘Liquesence’ finish, which gives the Range Rover SV Coupe a “liquid metal finish.”

Inside, luxurious touches such as seats “wrapped in specially selected semi-aniline leather from a single tannery established in 1905” can be found, as well as more modern features like the Meridian 3D Signature sound system.

Only 999 units of SV Coupe will be built worldwide, with Australian allocation numbers yet to be confirmed.

Land Rover says it’ll be Down Under by Q1 2019, with local pricing to be announced soon.
