Eterniti Hemera

Initially called the Hemera, Eterniti Motor's only vehicle was renamed Artemis when shown at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show.[4] The Artemis features a Porsche 4.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8, producing 591 bhp (441 kW; 599 PS) and 553 lb⋅ft (750 N⋅m) of torque, resulting in a claimed a 0-62 mph time of 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph (289.7 km/h).

The Artemis has been named the world’s first Super-SUV, extensively modifying the Porsche Cayenne[5] with new carbon composite body panels and ultra-low profile 315/25 tyres that sit on large 23" super-lightweight forged alloy rims. The standard specification features twin electric reclining seats in the rear, a choice of starlight roof lining or panoramic glass roof, quilted undercarpets and boot trim, lambswool rugs, electronic-reveal iPads, and a drinks chiller.

Company historyEdit
