Eterniti Artemis SUV

Apparently, Eterniti specialists have managed to open a showroom in London, for the first time. Here we have the opportunity to see for the first time their new Artemis, a model that has as base the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. The model is question received different descriptions, but the best of them all is the first Super SUV in the world. According to the carmaker, the model will be capable of offering the comfort of a limousine and the performance of a supercar. These declarations are to be considered by the ones interested in purchasing the future Lamborghini Urus, the Maserati Kubang and the upcoming Bentley EXP 9 F, all SUVs.

The new Eterniti Artemis receives power from a 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine capable of generating up to 600 horsepower and 553 lb. ft. of torque. Actually this output enables the model to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds and to reach a top speed of 180 mph. We had the opportunity to see the Artemis, as an engineering prototype in earlier this year, in April at the Auto China international motor show that took place in Beijing. Anyway, the new model offers the higher levels of luxury, performance and exclusivity asked by the wealthy car buyers of our days.

On the inside, the specialists have offered twin reclining rear seats with heating and cooling, iPad-ready holders with electronic reveal, but also a drinks chiller with crystal glasses. Despite the fact that it has so many elements borrowed from limousines, a limo cannot offer excellent handling and driver appeal, but an SUV can. The road height is suitable for poor road surfaces. All these put together, the new Eterniti Artemis is the ultimate crossover. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have provided 23-inch super lightweight forged alloy rims available in different styles covered in 315 / 25 tires. The carmaker established a starting price of GBP210.000 plus local taxes. The only exception is China. Here there is a special pricing strategy.
