Eterniti Artemis super-SUV unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show
British firm Eterniti has unveiled the Artemis SUV at the Beijing Motor Show. The car was previously known as the Hemera, and debuted in Frankfurt late last year.
Eterniti calls the Artemis a ‘super-SUV’, and it’s essentially a rebadged and rebodied Porsche Cayenne with a handcrafted interior.
That interior includes an extra 100mm of legroom for rear passengers, twin reclining rear seats that are both heated and cooled and iPad holders.
Performance is boosted by lightweight carbon composite body panels, while the 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8 produces over 600bhp and 750Nm of torque. That’s compared to the Cayenne Turbo, which produces 500bhp. Acceleration from 0-62mph takes 4.5 seconds – that’s two-tenths of a second quicker than the Porsche.
Handling has been tweaked by an engineering team headed up by Alastair Macqueen – the man who helped develop the Jaguar XJ220 – and the car has also been test driven by Johnny Herbert.
The Artemis will be on sale by autumn this year and will cost over £210,000.
