Eterniti Artemis SUV has a top speed of 180mph and will cost £250k when it goes on sale in autumn
24 April 2012

British tuning company Eterniti has revealed its 180mph Eterniti Artemis (formerly known as the Hemera) at the Beijing motor show.

Described by the firm as the “world’s first super-SUV”, the Artemis is powered by a Porsche Cayenne-sourced 4.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which has been tuned to produce 591bhp and 553lb ft of torque. Eterniti claims that the Artemis will dispatch the 0-62mph sprint in 4.5sec, with top speed achieved at 180mph.

External features of the SUV include hand-built carbon-composite body panels and large, lightweight 23-inch alloys clad in 315/25 low profile rubber.

Inside the cabin, the Artemis is finished with ‘quilted undercarpets,’ lambswool rugs, natural woods and carbonfibre. Kit includes heating and cooling twin reclining rear seats, iPad holders and a drinks chiller.

Production of the Eterniti Artemis starts in summer this year, with first deliveries expected in autumn.

Prices of the SUV start from £252,000, which represents a £165k premium over the turbocharged 493bhp Cayenne on which it is based. All cars will be covered by a two-year, 100,000-mile warranty.

Yep, 23 inch wheels with 315/25 tyres fitted just what you need on a SUV.

To drive one of these you may as well hang a sign around your neck telling everyone you have loads more money than sense.

Is this here just to make the VB Evoque and the Lambo SUV look less daft?

It doesnt work, they are all awful (although this might just win the prize!)

Eterniti is where this monstrosity should be banished to. Why does the interior make me think of quilted toilet paper —used quilted toilet paper? Honestly, at this rate, Ssangyong are beginning to look like style icons.

It's a vehicle for dickheads. Engelbert

[quote Squonk61]Was just about to ask if La Beckham had been moonlighting...[/quote] Surely this would be more in the lines of Scary Spice rather than the "Posh" one. It's just a monstrosity of a blinged up Cayenne, itself not the most attractive car to start with. Rather rich to call it a 'new' car, really, especially when charging that price.

Ah but, according to the Eterniti website, they are - and I quote - "a marque of distinction"

So now we know...
