British car maker Eterniti Motors Revealed further details on their Porsche Cayenne-based Hemera super SUV.
This car here which is on display at the IAA is not the final version, says Eterniti, as that will feature Eterniti LED headlamps and lenses. They also say that although the carbon composite body is basically a Cayenne with a body kit, the interior is all bespoke and unique.
The Hemera starts life as a Cayenne, but it will undergo a complete chassis-up rebuild, including a new, re-packaged interior, and the light-weight carbon-composite re-skin. It will also have additional engine performance, with the 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine producing over 620bhp for a top speed in excess of 180mph.
The car’s party piece however, which is yet to be revealed, remains the interior which according to Eterniti is out this world in terms of luxury and features.
With such specs we were expecting the Hemera to also cost out this world as well, but they say the standard version will start at around £150,000, which to be honest is not bad for a bespoke coachbuilt car.
Eterniti has a long-term plan. It will be opening an Asia-Pacific hub in Hong Kong in 2012, and showrooms in Tokyo and Taipei are scheduled to open by the end of the year. Representation in China will be established from 2013. The product plan includes a second Hemera derivative for 2012. Plans for another SUV and a high-performance car which could form the basis of a racing programme are currently being developed.
