Back in August a new British car maker called Eterniti Motors announced its existence, and revealed plans to launch a luxury crossover called Hemera at this year’s IAA. Now they’ve come up with a new teaser and a few more details.
According to Eterniti, the Hemera is a highly bespoke super-SUV with features never seen before in this class: “It will feature a limousine-like rear cabin, including twin reclining seats, iPads and a drinks chiller, giving customers the option of being chauffeured as well as driving. But with compact dimensions, 4×4 ruggedness and dynamic performance, it is also both practical and retains driver appeal.“
The car will be shown as a prototype at Frankfurt Motor Show and will then go into production in 2012. The car will be based on what Eterniti refers to as the latest generation of the best large SUV platform available and will feature carbon composite body panels.
Eterniti Motors is small company based in London specializing in luxury, personalised cars. They’ve put together a very good team and are backed by heavyweight investors.
The engineering team is led by Alastair Macqueen, who was responsible for the development of the Jaguar XJ220 supercar to production and has won the Le Mans 24-Hour race with both Jaguar and Bentley. Eterniti also has its very own F1 driver, Johnny Herbert, like Macqueen victorious at Le Mans but in addition a winner of three Grands Prix during a 10-year Formula 1 career. Teh latter will help the company pursue its future plans of engaging in motorpsort.
