    Niels van Roij Design has revealed the production version of the Adventum Coupe, a two-door Range Rover inspired by the SV Coupe that Land Rover cancelled last January.

    The work of the Dutch car designer who’s also responsible for a Tesla Model S shooting brake and coachbuilt by Bas van Roomen, the Adventum Coupe stays faithful to the original Land Rover SVO creation, with custom-made aluminium bodywork that uses only the bonnet, wings and boot lid from the standard Range Rover.

    It’s exclusively powered by Land Rover’s 524hp 5.0-litre supercharged petrol V8. It's been designed to hark back to the original Range Rover, which was available in a two-door body, up until 1981.

    Van Roij says that each Adventum Coupe “can have striking materials and colour schemes for both interior and exterior. Everything is possible: unique fuel-filler caps, duo-tone exterior paints... even refined embroidery is a possibility”.

    The first example built features red leather upholstery and a hand-made teak floor that extends from the front seats to the boot. It also features two electrically operated captain’s chairs in the rear, and even comes with hand-stitched umbrellas using the same leather as the interior. Van Roij calls commissioning the SUV a "co-design process."

    The Adventum Coupe can be commissioned for just under £235,000 (about Rs 2.19 crore approximately) excluding local taxes, with construction starting once a £43,500 (approximately Rs 40.53 lakh) deposit is placed. The build process takes at least six months, depending on what the customer specifies with the car.

    That’s very close to what Land Rover planned to charge for the SV Coupe. However, when the manufacturer suffered a financial downturn, it canned the project in order to focus its resources on new mass-produced models.
