The Range Rover SV Coupe has been nixed before a single model could trundle down the production line.
- The British marque has chosen to divert resources towards regular production models instead.
On the flip side, Land Rover had to develop a different stamping process for the SV Coupe. Even with a price tag of $295,000, or about double the price of a long-wheelbase Autobiography model, the profit margins simply may not have been there to justify the expense of having SVO build 999 examples.
A Land Rover spokesperson said the car's cancellation is not down to a lack of demand - though he wouldn't confirm how numerous 999 the company planned to build had actually been sold. Customers who have ordered the SV Coupe have been informed, although how many customers that is remains unknown. Land Rover South Africa, meanwhile, had said an "extremely limited number" would be headed to local shores.
The SV Coupe was made official at the Geneva Motor Show and it is powered by a 5.0 litre supercharged V8 engine which produces 557 horsepower and comes with 700Nm of torque.
Yep, the three-door Range Rover isn't making a comeback after all.
