Independent carmaker Eterniti Motors has come away from this year’s Beijing motor show with five confirmed sales of its Porsche Cayenne-based Eterniti Artemis.
The London-based Eterniti debuted its Artemis super-SUV in Beijing last month where it took orders for four standard-specification cars and one fully bespoke vehicle.
Eterniti say prices start at £210,000 ($338,000) for the standard Artemis but prices for custom variants will depend on customer specifications.
The Eterniti Artemis offers a hand-built body of carbon composites with a handcrafted interior that incorporates leather, natural wood veneers, piano black and carbonfibre, twin reclining rear seats with heating and cooling, iPad-compatibility, and a drinks chiller. Dedicated 23-inch super-lightweight forged alloy wheels are also available in a variety of styles.
The Artemis offers performance to match too with its Porsche-sourced 441kW/750Nm twin-turbo 4.8-litre V8 engine helping the super-SUV shift from standstill to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds on its way to over 290km/h.
All five cars will go to China-based buyers, confirming the market’s demand for luxury SUVs, however Eterniti has also reportedly received serious expressions of interest from customers in Italy, Spain, the USA and even Australia.
With Eterniti aiming to sell only 30-40 cars this year and the company receiving positive dealer reaction from around the world, it would seem things are already on target for the exclusive manufacturer.
Deliveries of those first customer cars are scheduled for this autumn.
