McGovern has previously hinted at the coupe's existence, suggesting journalists "write that down" when he referenced a two-door Range Rover variant during a Los Angeles motor show press conference.

Land Rover says the SV Coupe is "a celebration of the Range Rover bloodline, with a dramatic 2-door silhouette that alludes to its unique heritage - the Range Rover launched as a 2-door in 1970 - while being thoroughly modern and contemporary". Look for more information to be released when the Range Rover SV Coupe makes is officially revealed at this year's Geneva Motor Show in early March.

Certain elements of the "regular" Range Rover interior carry over, including the dual-screen infotainment system and rotary gear selector.
