Eterniti Artemis: world’s first Super-SUV

Article by Christian A., on April 23, 2012

Eterniti Motors revealed world’s first Super-SUV, the Artemis. As you may know already, the concept form of the Artemis was called Hemera and was unveiled back in March at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, but the London-based boutique luxury carmaker decided to launch the production version at the Auto China 2012 in Beijing.

Still, the car is not yet finished as Eterniti says that the vehicles on display are in-use, running prototypes so do not represent the final finish quality but do in-use, running prototypes so do not represent the final finish quality. The new Eterniti Hemera will enter production this summer and will take on cars such as the Bentley SUV previewed by the EXP 9 F Concept, the upcoming Lamborghini Urus SUV but also on the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

For those who don’t know, the Artemis is actually based on the Cayenne Turbo, so it’s not a completely new vehicle. Just like the Cayenne, the vehicle carries the same 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine delivering 600 hp (441kW) and 750Nm (553 lb ft) torque. With these numbers, the car can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.5 seconds and has a top speed that exceeds 290 km/h or 180 mph. According to Eterniti, the performance and handling have been developed by a race-bred British engineering team led by Alastair Macqueen.

Macqueen also helped Jaguar developing the XJ220, then the world’s fastest road car, and has engineered three outright Le Mans 24 Hour race wins for Jaguar and Bentley. The design of the car looks really impressive as the car was completely restyled.

If you don’t really like the exterior, you will love the interior, as this features the finest leathers, quilted undercarpets and boot trim, lambswool rugs, veneers including natural woods, piano black and carbon fibre, a choice of sunroofs and starlight roof lining, and a state-of-the-art audio system. The Eterniti Artemis will be priced at the local currency equivalent of £210,000 plus local taxes in all markets except China, which will have a unique pricing strategy.

Ever more energetic and effective, with more interior room but with less weight, the new Cayenne’s sporty, elegant style points to the future of technology and expresses Porsche ideals more than ever.

Cayenne S Hybrid, Porsche’s first hybrid production car, leads this new generation paving the way in modern efficiency by reducing fuel use by up to 23%.

The new Cayenne represents all Porsches by being developed along Porsche’s Intelligent Performance principle: needing less fuel for more power, better efficiency, and lower CO2 emissions.

With this, three of five of these models stay below the ten-litre fuel consumption per 100-kilometre limit for the New European Driving Cycle. The Cayenne Diesel at 195 g/km and the Cayenne S Hybrid at 193 g/km also stay under the 200 grams of CO2 per kilometre emission limit.

This noteworthy lowered fuel consumption across the entire Porsche Cayenne range is from such features as the new eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission with Auto Start Stop and an even wider gear increment range, the engine and transmission cooling circuit thermal management, on-board network recuperation, variable overrun cut-off, consistently reduced weight, and intelligent lightweight construction.
