GENEVA: Range Rover chose this week’s Geneva Motor Show to reveal the world’s first luxury full-size SUV Coupe.
Limited to 999 units worldwide, it will have a price starting at $335,000.
The SUV Coupe is powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 producing 557 hp and 516 lb/ft of torque giving it a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 265 km/h (165 mph).
The units will be hand-built at the Range Rover Technical Centre in England and will be the first Range Rover to sport 23-inch wheels.
Semi-aniline leather front seats, featuring a gradated diamond quilt design unique to the SV Coupe, lifts the premium interior to a new level of luxury accommodation comparable to private jets and yachts.
SV Coupe clients can choose from four front-to-rear contrast interior colours, or a range of single-tone interior colors. Both are complemented by a choice of three wood veneers.
A first for Range Rover is the Nautica veneer, which carefully balances heritage craftsmanship with new technology, fusing walnut and sycamore together.
An all-new optional exterior paint finish named Liquesence joins the suite of available paint options, bringing a liquid metal finish to the Range Rover for the first time .
The suspension is tuned to provide a more driver-focused edge than the standard Range Rover, with a ride height lowered by 0.31-in (eight mm).
But the SUV Coupe loses none of the legendary Range Rover all-terrain capability, with almost three feet (900 mm) of maximum wading depth – and a maximum towing capacity of 7,716 lb.
