The strange world of two-door SUVs just got a little bigger. On Tuesday, Land Rover launched the all-new, British-built limited edition Range Rover SV Coupe. This edition of the SV not only becomes the first two-door, full-size SUV on the market but also the fastest full-size Range Rover ever produced.

The SV Coupe receives a monstrous 5.0L supercharged V8 engine rated at 557 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, which will allow the Brit Beast to do the 0-to-100 run in 5.3 seconds. For reference, it would beat the Mercedes-AMG G 65 in a drag race.

Power and good looks won’t be the model’s only qualities – it will also feature the badge’s legendary off-roading capability thanks to a flight of driving modes, adjustable air suspension, a wading depth of 900 mm and a towing capacity of up to 3,500 kg.

Each of the 999 handbuilt units will be highly customizable thanks to a well-garnished menu of options. This includes a model-specific body paint pallet with your choice of finish, contrasting or single-tone interiors, three elegant wood veneers – including the all-new Nautica veneer that blends the essence of walnut and sycamore – and seven design packages. The semi-aniline leather seats have also been redesigned to provide additional comfort.

The limited-production model will also receive the updated InControl Touch Pro, dual-screen infotainment system introduced in 2017 with the new Velar – a stark improvement over the system’s previous generation.

The JLR Special Vehicle Operations Technical Center in Warwickshire, England will be responsible for hand-assembly of the units that will go for $335,000 in Canada. Sales are expected to begin at the end of the year.

Sabrina loves cars and hates writing bios, except she’s been told that she can’t get away with writing lazy introductions anymore. So here goes nothing: a long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away called Quebec, a girl was born, destined to love Mustangs, ride motorcycles and master the Force. A Bachelor in Art History and an essay on the positioning of the Morgan cars in the modern definition of the Arts and Crafts movement later, the girl-turned-woman is now thriving in the realms of automotive/motorcycling journalism and geekery of all genre, pretending to use the Force to open automatic doors and to know what she’s doing at the wheel of awesome cars. Sabrina also enjoys walks on the beach, pina coladas and endless sentences.
