New British maker reveals prototype ‘Super-SUV’
Britain is set to gain a new car manufacturer, Eterniti Motors revealing the first pictures of a car it will unveil at the Frankfurt show.
The Hemera is described as ‘the world’s first Super-SUV’. Eterniti says it will launch next year and bring new levels of luxury and performance to the SUV segment.
Much information is still to be released both concerning the Hemera and Eterniti itself. The company says the car will be hand-built in London, with a limousine-like rear cabin, including twin electric reclining seats, iPads and a drinks chiller, giving customers the option of being chauffeured as well as driving.
Technical details are equally scarce, with only a 620bhp power output and 180mph top speed quoted. The images released of the car suggest it might be built around the underpinnings of Porsche’s Cayenne.
