Land Rover has confirmed that the limited two-door SV Coupe will not be launched at all
It will be the ultimate Range Rover. The fastest full-size version of the luxury Land Rover, the best and most expensive. But it was not.
The two-door Range Rover SV Coupe was unveiled last year and due to the green light for the 999 production plant, Land Rover has now confirmed that the vehicle has been canceled.
In its statement, the company stated:
"We have made a difficult decision to inform our customers that the Range Rover SV Coupé will not continue production, instead of focusing its resources and investment on the next generation of world-class products."
JLR will strive to cut costs for the next eighteen months by 2.5 billion crowns, some of which will involve a loss of 4500 jobs. It seems the SV Coupe is another victim of the scheme.
The SVK Coupe magnifier should not be the weakest thing. Each of them was built manually at the JLR Special Operations Operations Center in Warwickshire and only a small body was shared with a conventional Range Rover – only the hood and tailgate were transferred.
The plan was to drop the 5.0 liter supercharged V8 with a volume of 5.7 liters under the bonnet, which would mean it would reach a speed of 0-62 miles per hour in five seconds, despite the heavy weight.
We have no doubt that this would be a great thing on many levels, so its extinction is a great shame.
