We don't yet know if the "Coupe" bit refers just to its two-door format or whether it will be styled with a new roofline and back-end, but it's being built by Special Vehicle Operations and it seems likely the body shape will change.

Range Rover has announced it will return to its roots with a stylish two-door limited-edition model dubbed the SV Coupe. Why limited edition you ask?

"The Range Rover SV Coupé is a highly compelling design with peerless refinement and uncompromised sophistication from its breathtaking exterior proportions to its sumptuous, beautifully appointed, interior".

Speaking about the new SUV coupe John Edwards, Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director, said that in launching the new Range Rover SV Coupé, the British marque will offer clients a combination of luxury and rarity. Each model is said to be hand-assembled by Special Vehicle Operations in SV Technical Centre in Ryton-on-Dunsmore in Warwickshire, UK.

Government shut-down 'disappointing' for Liberty State Park visitors
Andrew Cuomo has vowed to find state money to reopen the Statue of Liberty, which closed due to the federal government shutdown . The state will provide $65,000 to cover the costs of operating the sites, which will include paying National Park Service staff.

The inside of the two-door Range Rover SV Coupe looks quite interesting while still maintaining the tradition touch. The seats come covered in diamond-quilted leather seats.

The interior photo released by the company reveals an upscale cabin with premium leather upholstery, wood trim, and a full-length center console. The materials run through the dashboard as well.

Back last July we drove the prototype of the Range Rover from 1969, which was badged Velar at the time, because it was best name that engineers could think of that used the Land Rover letters that were available in the parts bin. The new coupe will sport new headlights with updated front grille. 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.
