It's not yet clear how many have been earmarked for Australia, but a local JLR spokesman has confirmed a limited number will arrive here from October or November. While the wood covered centre console with metallic trim runs the length of the cabin, the front seats sit in white and the rear passengers sit in dark navy blue.
There is no official technical information regarding the SV Coupe, as they will be made available in March, at the Geneva event.
Inspired by the original two-door Range Rover (below) but based on the latest Rangie, the newcomer has been described as the world's first full-sized luxury SUV coupé.
Land Rover is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2018, and looks to be doing plenty of reminiscing in the process.
However, every Range Rover since 1981 - except the limited-edition 1991 CSK, which paid tribute to the model's original designer Charles Spencer King - has come with four doors.
John Edwards, Managing Director for Special Vehicle Operations added, "Land Rover created the luxury SUV sector with Range Rover nearly 50 years ago".
Heading for a reveal at the Geneva Motor Show, Land Rover has started the tease for the SV Coupe with a single photo (above) of the interior, which looks fairly standard high-end Range Rover. "This is a vehicle that will resonate on an emotional level", said in a statement Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer.
"Land Rover created the luxury SUV sector with Range Rover nearly 50 years ago", added John Edwards, Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director, "In launching the new Range Rover SV Coupé, we will offer clients an alluring combination of peerless luxury and rarity".
