Having already announced that they're lumping a V8 in 150 Defenders, the team at Special Vehicle Operations has now chosen to pay homage to the original two-door Range Rover - the auto that started the SUV revolution - with a Range Rover SV Coupe.

Little else is known about the new model, though it is expected to borrow most of its key components and aluminium construction from the current Range Rover flagship range, with a special focus on bespoke interior treatments as part of its hand-built lure.

Land Rover design chief Gerry McGovern said: "The Range Rover SV Coupe is a highly compelling design with peerless refinement and uncompromised sophistication from its breathtaking exterior proportions to its sumptuous, beautifully appointed, interior".

However, the Range Rover SV Coupe won't be a mainstream model like the BMW X6 or Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.

What will it look like on the outside?

The new, limited edition two-door Range Rover will make its world debut in Geneva.

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) says that the new Range Rover SV Coupe will be a dramatic and desirable addition to the Range Rover portfolio, featuring a seductive body design and a supremely refined interior. Land Rover promises up-to-the-minute technologies utilized throughout the cabin as well.

In the teaser we get a snapshot of the interior, showing four individual seats wrapped up in exquisite attention to detail and luxury.

Land Rover will probably start selling the Coupe by the end of this year, promising to offer its customers "an alluring combination of peerless luxury and rarity". The vehicle is the product of the company's Special Vehicle Operations unit, which is charged with building the vehicles at the SV Technical Center in Ryton-on-Dunsmore in Warwickshire, England. We can't wait to see it in the flesh, either.
