London-based Eterniti Motors has announced it has made first sales of its Artemis super-SUV at Beijing's Auto China show earlier this month.

In total, five orders were received, four of which are for standard-specification cars priced at £210,000 plus taxes, and one fully custom version with the final price to be determined depending on the customer's final specification wishes.

The standard specification Artemis 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.

Using a Porsche Cayenne as the base vehicle, the body panels are carbon composite and hand-built with dedicated 23-inch super-lightweight forged alloy rims in a variety of styles. The 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine produces over 600bhp (441kW / 591hp) and 750Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque, and can accelerate from 0-100kph in 4.5 seconds and exceed 290km/h (180mph).

All five orders are based in China, but Eterniti says it received serious expressions of interest from customers in Italy, Spain, the USA and Australia as well as dealer inquiries from the Middle East, USA and Russia.

Eterniti Motors states first year production is only 30-40 units with first deliveries taking place this autumn.
