If you want to attract the most gazes at the school carpool line, Range Rover might be able to help with that.
The British car company is introducing its most expensive and luxurious model to date - the 2019 Range Rover SV Coupe.
Billed as the world’s first full-size luxury SUV coupe, the two-door vehicle boasts a starting price of $295,000. Depending on the design packages, customers could expect the price of the vehicle to top out at around $360,000.
Range Rover will only produce 999 of these hand-built family vehicles. One of the Range Rover SV Coupes was on exclusive display at Land Rover Buckhead last week.
“Atlanta is one of the biggest car markets in the country,” said Lorraine McKiniry with the Experiential Marketing Team at Jaguar Land Rover. “People here like their exclusive cars. They like their Land Rovers. And, of course on this countrywide tour, we had to stop here.”
The Range Rover SV Coupe program is also unique in that it allows owners to customize the vehicle with a variety of “design pack” options. Customers can design a Coupe with a more traditional Range Rover look or give their vehicle a little more contemporary bling.
“The Range Rover SV Coupe is a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline,” said Gerry McGovern, chief design officer for Land Rover and the designer of the vehicle at Land Rover Buckhead. “With a dramatic two-door silhouette, this breath-taking four-seat Coupe alludes to its unique heritage while being thoroughly modern and contemporary.”
The Range Rover SV Coupe is currently on a North American marketing tour to allow potential consumers in key markets like Atlanta to view the “design packs,” which offer a full range of the custom finishes and trimmings for the vehicle.
After the model vehicle leaves Atlanta, it will continue on its tour through the summer, visiting cities including Miami, Los Angeles, and others.
The coupe is powered by a 557 hp 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, which is the most powerful engine currently offered on the full-size Range Rover, according to the company.
Officials say the SV Coupe can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just five seconds and has a top speed around 165 mph.
“This is a meticulously honed vehicle that’s designed for SV clients who love driving,” said Mark Stanton, special vehicle operations director.
