Eterniti Motors sells first 5 samples of Artemis super-SUV at Beijing Show

Article by Anita Panait, on May 16, 2012

Eterniti Motors sold the first five units of the Artemis super-sports utility vehicle at the Auto China Show in Beijing. Eterniti Motors took five orders at the Auto China Show -- four standard-specs Artemis, each with prices of £210,000 plus taxes; and a custom-built Artemis, the price of which depends on the customer’s final specs.

The standard Artemis features a handcrafted interior that includes finest leathers, veneers made of natural woods, piano black and carbon fibre. The standard Artemis also features twin reclining rear seats with heating and cooling, iPad holders with electronic reveal, and a drinks chiller. The standard Artemis has hand-built body panels made of carbon composite, highlighted by 23” super-lightweight forged alloy rims that are available in different styles.

The Artemis is powered by a 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine the offers over 600bhp (441kW) of output and 750Nm (553 lb ft) of torque, allowing the super-SUV to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.5 secs and to reach a maximum speed of over 290kph. All five buyers of the Artemis are residents in China, where customers are demanding luxury vehicles that offer rear passenger space, personalization and performance -- all of which are typical in a luxury SUV like the Artemis. 

However, those who have implied their interest in ordering the Artemis super-SUV are customers based in the United States, Australia, Spain and Italy. Eterniti aims to sell 30 to 40 Artemis this year, and with the five orders and a handful of interested buyers, the company is likely to reach its goal. Eterniti will make the first deliveries of the SUV this autumn. Eterniti’s global sales director Marcus Kenny is all pleased with the results, especially that the company only showed running prototypes in the Auto China Show.
