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.
Porsche Cayenne’s design language is clear and convincing, sporting, dynamic, and distinctively Porsche. This is very evident even at very first sight.
Porsche set certain objectives in designing its new generation Cayenne and these objectives were challenging and diverse from the very start. In order to offer more interior space and to enhance variability levels, the Cayenne’s wheelbase was extended by 40 mm and its overall length has an additional 48 mm. The new Porsche Cayenne are also 6 mm higher and 11 mm wider compared to the previous model.
With this new design, the new Porsche Cayenne has an even more powerful and muscular stance on the road. What’s more, the new model looks much more dynamic and much more compact despite its larger dimensions. With all the enhancements, the particular character possessed by a truly dynamic and sporting performer vehicle emerges more clearly from every angle. Plus, the shape and the design themes that are typically Porsche can be seen even more clearly than before.
The Cayenne is unmistakable even at first glance. Its front is characterized by a larger center air scoop that is accentuated further by side air intakes that are smaller. Moreover, its newly designed air scoops highlight its sporting elegance as well as confirm the superior performance and superior power that the Cayenne has to offer.
Furthermore, the Cayenne’s wings are contoured more strongly and rise up above its engine compartment lid, thus conveying a self-confident look. Greater emphasis is given to the car’s engine lid from its front, thanks to the Powerdome as well as the lid’s new V shape, which is typical of a Porsche.
In addition, the front end tapers out low down, which further lowers the car’s visual center of gravity. The outer air intakes, too, extend far to the outside, giving the Cayenne’s look an even greater emphasis, and making this look reminiscent to that of a sports car.
