The auto is a nod to the first Range Rover from 1970, which launched as a two-door model, and is being made to help celebrate the company's 70th anniversary.

Whether the Range Rover SV Coupe will retain its siblings' off-road performance remains to be seen, but nevertheless, it should be an interesting and lovely styling exercise from SVO.

The Range Rover Coupe SV will be Land Rover's most expensive model to date when it goes on sale later this year.

The new SV Coupe is said to be a "dramatic addition" to the Range Rover portfolio, featuring a "seductive body design and a supremely refined interior".

The SUV's wood-finished transmission tunnel extends from the bottom of the centre console to the rear, covering the space where a middle seat would be, and houses a pair of storage compartments and leather armrest.

No exterior teasers have been released yet, but we'd expect the vehicle to stick close to the regular Range Rover's boxy silhouette - to provide decent headroom for passengers in those cossetting rear seats.

The existence of a two-door Rangie, which Land Rover claims is the world's first full-size luxury SUV coupe - was confirmed by Land Rover design chief Gerry McGovern at the Los Angeles show last November but only officially announced today. This is just the interior, but you'll see the full thing at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Only 999 of them will be made, with each unit being hand-built by the SVO technicians at the factory in Warwickshire. In 1970, the Range Rover was revealed at the Louvre, but for the 70th things are a little more restrained with an official unveiling scheduled for Geneva on March 6th.
