It's a big, luxurious SUV that sports two doors - that's the Range Rover SV Coupe that British automaker Land Rover plans to reveal March 6 at the Geneva auto show.

The new vehicle will come with two doors, just as the 1970s version of the Range Rover.

What will it look like on the outside?

The original Range Rover had just two doors, and to celebrate their 70th Anniversary this year Land Rover are taking the Range Rover back to its roots with a new two-door Range Rover SV Coupe. "Unveiling this special vehicle at the Geneva International Motor Show in March, during Land Rover's 70th Anniversary year, will be a defining moment for Land Rover, the Range Rover portfolio and Special Vehicle Operations".

Rajon Rondo puts Celtics on blast for Isaiah Thomas' tribute
With the tribute-video saga out of the way, Thomas can now fully focus on trying to help Cleveland claw their way out of a slump. Danny Ainge had a chat with Pierce about the day, and the Celtics' great did not want to share his special occasion with Thomas.

Apart from the cabin, Land Rover has not revealed any other information on the Range Rover SV Coupe. "This is a vehicle that will resonate on an emotional level", said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer.

As you can see from this image, however, the Range Rover SV Coupe features an opulent interior with four plush individual seats - trimmed with white leather up front and black leather at the rear - accessed via a pair of extended front doors.

Land Rover describes the interior as "stunning to the eye, sumptuous to the touch" where attention to detail has been "paramount". Limited to 999 examples worldwide, the RR SV Coupe will be hand assembled by Special Vehicle Operations in Warwickshire to go head to head with rivals from Germany and Italy in the shapes of the BMW X6, Mercedes GLE and Lamborghini Urus.

Jaguar Land Rover hasn't released pricing or an on-sale date, unsurprisingly, but we're absolutely floored to see the return of a two-door Rangie and can not wait to get our grubby, peasant hands all over it in Geneva.
