Range Rover SV Coupe – An Expensive Two-Door SUV For The Rich

Published

on

Range Rover SV Coupe, two-door SUV

Jeep Wrangler aside, when was the last time you saw a two-door SUV? Back in the late 90s? Early 2000s maybe? Well, Land Rover feels it’s been too long since we’ve had one and has prepared a two-door Range Rover specifically for a very few individuals with deep pockets.

We say a “very few” individuals because only 999 examples of the Range Rover SV Coupe will be made, with each costing £240,000 in the UK. And what does all that money get you? The finest Land Rover Range Rover has to offer, of course.

The Coupe’s silhouette is unmistakable, but without a good look at the side, you probably wouldn’t notice the absence of two doors. Other distinct exterior touches include unique side vents, a modified grille design, and Range Rover’s first-ever 23-inch wheel option.

Ride height has also been lowered by 8 mm and the suspension retuned to give the SV Coupe a sportier look and ride.

Things are extra special inside, where we find unique semi-aniline leather front seats with a gradated diamond quilt design and the choice of three elegant wood veneers and four front-to-rear contrast interior color options. A range of single-tone interior colors is also available.

Want to make your ride even more special? Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations gives you access to 100 more paint colors, unique ‘match to sample’ hues with a range of finishes; contrast stitching; headrest embroidery; door handle and tread plate engraving; and semi-precious metal badging.

The Range Rover SV Coupe is the fastest full-size Range Rover to date, thanks in large part to a 5.0-liter Supercharged V8 that produces 557 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. It is capable of hitting 60 miles per hour (96 km/h) from a standstill in just 5 seconds and a top speed of 165 mpg (266 km/h), which are impressive figures for such a large vehicle.

Notwithstanding the fact that two-door SUVs have never truly been popular (the two-door Jeep Wrangler doesn’t sell near as well as the four-door Wrangler), does the Range Rover SV Coupe make you want to see more two-door SUVs? Share your impressions in the comments below.

Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster

Production of this drop-top German will be limited to just 750 units.

Just four months after the four-door Mercedes-AMG GT made its debut, the Mercedes-AMG GT family has grown yet again with the addition of the GT R Roadster.

Arriving just in time for summer, the limited-edition convertible features a three-layer fabric soft top with lightweight aluminum and magnesium construction and an acoustic mat that helps absorb wind noise.

Power is provided by AMG’s 4.0-liter V8 Bitrubo engine, producing 577 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) is complete in 3.5 seconds and top speed is reached at 197 mph (317 km/h).

Like the GT R coupe, the GT R Roadster boasts a long list of exterior upgrades that include a wider stance, a larger rear wing, exclusive 20-inch wheels in the rear and 19-inch rims up front, and an adjustable coil-over suspension with active rear axle steering

A number of active aerodynamic components have been implemented to manage airflow around the engine and underneath the car, reducing lift and maximizing efficiency and downforce.

Notable interior touches include AMG black carbon fiber trim elements, AMG Performance seats wrapped in Nappa leather, and an AMG Performance steering wheel.

Mercedes plans to build just 750 examples of the GT R Roadster, so act fast if you want one.

Alfa Romeo Tonale SUV Concept, live

The Italian automaker is getting ready to enter the electric vehicle segment.

Alfa Romeo used the 2019 Geneva Motor show to debut the Tonale Concept, previewing its first plug-in hybrid.

Sharing a design language with the larger Stelvio, the sleek compact crossover stands out with a large lower grille flanked by LED-array headlights that are thinner than those on the Stelvio and retro design elements like Alfa Romeo’s characteristic phone-dial wheel, which as borrowed from the 33 Stradale of the 1960s.

Highlights of the interior include a 12.3-inch full digital instrument cluster, a large 10.25-inch touchscreen for the central head unit, and premium materials ranging from aluminum to Alcantara and leather.

Technical details or a launch window for the production Tonale were not revealed, but the model was envisioned with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

Alfa Romeo plans to launch a total of six PHEVs by the end of 2022, and the Tonale will certainly be one of them.

Polestar 2 EV, front quarter

Sweden delivers yet another promising electrified vehicle.

The Polestar 2 has arrived, and it’s ready to do battle with the Tesla Model 3 and other premium compact electric cars.

As Polestar’s first fully-electric vehicle, the Polestar 2 draws heavy inspiration from the Volvo 40.2 concept that debuted in 2016, featuring a relatively high ride height for a sedan and a five-door fastback design that makes it more versatile.

In fact, the Polestar 2 is based on Volvo’s Compact Modular Architecture platform and is powered by a drivetrain consisting of two electric motors and a 78 kWh battery that deliver a combined 408 horsepower and 487 lb-ft. of torque, enough power to accelerate it from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in under five seconds.

The 27-module battery pack also integrated into the floor to improve the rigidity of the chassis and improve noise, vibration and harshness levels. It provides the Swedish electric car with a driving range of around 275 miles (443 km) on a single charge.

For those interested in a sportier driving experience, the Polestar 2 will be available with a Performance Pack that adds Öhlins dampers, Brembo brakes and unique 20-inch forged wheels. It also adds gold seat belts, brake calipers and valve caps.

Highlights of the interior include an 11-inch touchscreen that runs an Android-based infotainment system, granting owners access to Google Assistant, Google Maps and a number of other vehicle-based apps.

Production of the Polestar 2 kicks off in China in early 2020, with pricing starting at 39,900 Euros in Europe and at $55,000 in the United States.

Like the Polestar 1, it will be available exclusively via an online ordering system, and there will also eventually be a subscription program to broaden its reach.

Polestar will also introduce a less expensive version of the Polestar 2 down the road.
