The first official images of the Eterniti Hemera ‘super SUV’ have been released ahead of the prototype’s unveiling at tomorrow’s 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The Porsche Cayenne lookalike – the first vehicle from new British car manufacturer Eterniti Motors – promises new levels of performance and luxury in the SUV segment.
Production of the Eterniti Hemera will commence late next year, when the first hand-built examples will roll out of the London-based factory.
Eterniti is promising a ‘limousine-like’ rear cabin, equipped with twin electric reclining seats, iPads and a drink chiller, giving customers the option of either jumping behind the wheel or letting Geeves do the steering.
Despite the opulence, the British marque says the Hemera will be much more practical than a limousine, offering the added versatility of 4x4 ruggedness and dynamic performance.
Eterniti hasn’t revealed the full powertrain details of the Hemera, but says it will pack more than 462kW of power and achieve a top speed in excess of 290km/h.
From a power perspective, the Eterniti Hemera will be in a league of its own, easily eclipsing the output of the Audi Q7 V12 (368kW), Porsche Cayenne Turbo (368kW), Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG (375kW) and the BMW X5 M/X6 M (408kW).
At this stage we’re unsure how much the Hemera will share with the Porsche Cayenne, but all will be revealed tomorrow when the first Eterniti prototype hits the stand at Frankfurt tomorrow.
