After announcing the plans to release an uber-luxurious SUV last summer, the newly formed Eterniti Motors in Britain unwrapped a new concept SUV called the Hemera during the auto show in Frankfurt last year.
It is too bad though that the concept SUV is so similar to the Cayenne Turbo of Porsche on which it was based on so the design needed to be updated to give it a more unique touch. The new creation is the Artemis SUV that made a debut during the recently opened motor show in Beijing.
Just like its concept sibling, the Eterniti SUV will be running using the 4.8L twin turbo V-8 engine that gives out a whopping 600 horsepower and a torque of 553 pound-feet. The car manufacturer promises an acceleration of 0 to 60 miles an hour in just a matter of 4.5 seconds and a top speed not going over 180 miles per hour.
The handling and performance of the vehicle was developed by a team under the guidance of Alastair Macqueen who is known for engineering the Jaguar XJ220 and oversaw the victories of Bentley and Jaguar during their victories at the 24 hour race in Le Mans. Johnny Herbert, who is a former driver in the F1 grand prix, is also helping with the development.
When you look inside the Eterniti Artemis, it will be a good competition for any Maserati and Bentley. The surfaces are lavishly designed and handcrafted using the best known leathers, trim, veneers, rugs, carbon fiber, and undercarpets. The audio system is also state of the art.
The production of the new SUV will kick off by summer and the first deliveries are expected by fall. The vehicles being showcased in Beijing are running Eterniti Artemis prototypes so it only closely reflects the production version which might still get some improvements.
Eternitiis trying to build a network of showrooms in major cities like London, Hong Kong, and Taipei. The company is based in London and has an atelier where the vehicles can be made according to specifications. Looking forward, the brand is planning to make their very own supercar.
