Eterniti Motors debuted their Artemis super-SUV at the Beijing Motor Show. The UK company released today they managed to get their first five orders at the Asian car show. Four standard-specification cars were ordered. They are priced at £ 210,000 plus taxes. One bespoke version was sold with a price, which will depend on the customer’s final specification requirements.
The standard specification offers a handcrafted interior including the finest leathers, veneers including natural woods, piano black and carbon fiber, twin reclining rear seats with heating and cooling, iPad-ready holders with electronic reveal, and a drinks chiller.
On the outside, the body panels are carbon composite and hand-built, with dedicated 23 inch forged alloy rims in a variety of styles. The SUV is powered by a 4.8 liter twin-turbo V8 engine producing over 600bhp and 750Nm torque and can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds and exceed 290km/h.
All five buyers are based in China, where the demand for luxury SUVs is growing rapidly. However, at Beijing there were also interest from customers based in Italy, Spain, the USA and Australia.
Eterniti is aiming for sales of only 30-40 cars this year. Deliveries of the first customer cars are scheduled for this autumn. Dealer reaction was also very positive, according to Eterniti. They received enquiries from not only China, where Eterniti will form its first retail partnerships, but also the Middle East, USA and Russia.
