Eterniti 'super-SUV' will cost over £210,000
British tuning company Eterniti has publicly unveiled the production version of its first ever car, carrying the new name Artemis and some styling tweaks.
The model was shown during this year's Beijing Motor Show and Eterniti have revealed they are taking orders for the Artemis, which should enter production by the summer of 2012.
The car first made a surprise appearance back at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, when it was revealed as the Hemera concept.
While Eterniti was virtually unheard of prior to the unveiling, it announced at the show that the car's engineering was being supported by the experienced Alastair Macqueen, who helped develop cars like the Jaguar XJ220 supercar for example.
Furthermore the Eterniti has undergone test driving by the ex-Formula One driver Johnny Herbert.
Like the Hemera concept, Eterniti describes the Artemis as the world's first 'super-SUV', a very fast and very luxurious model which aims to challenge established rivals like the Range Rover.
The Artemis itself is essentially a rebodied Porsche Cayenne, whilst this is still highly noticeable; some styling changes have been made compared to the Hemera concept.
The most obvious differences are at the front, where the Artemis sports a redesigned grille with a brand new badge placed at the centre.
Under the bonnet, the Artemis shares the same engine as the Cayenne, a 4.8-litre twin-turbo charged V8 but its power output has been bolstered from 500bhp found on the Cayenne Turbo to over 600bhp.
According to Eterniti the Artemis can cover the 0-62mph sprint in just 4.5 seconds, which is 0.2 compared to the Cayenne Turbo.
Like the original concept, the four-seater cabin of the Artemis is surrounded with premium leather and wood materials. Standard equipment will include 23" alloy wheels, iPad holders and twin reclining rear seats with heating and cooling functions.
Customers for the Artemis will also get an extensive customisation list to style the cabin to their preferred and pricey tastes.
Eterniti expect to start delivering the Artemis to markets including the UK during autumn 2012. Pricing will start from around £210,000 excluding local taxes.
