Eterniti announces their plans 0

The London based car producer Eterniti have made some announcements regarding their future plans.

The newest British entrant into the automotive market has released more details on their plans to develop of a luxurious SUV vehicle. The company believe that there is gap in the market for them to take advantage of. They intend to create a 4×4 vehicle which offers a sporty type of drive whilst being practical and containing a great amount of space.

Cayenne framework

Eterniti caused quite a stir at the Frankfurt Motor Show back in September. They revealed the Hemera which is based upon the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.  The company are said to using the framework of the Cayenne but will completely re-brand all of it in order for Eterniti’s branding to be clearly recognised throughout.

Expert help

The new company used the British Motorsport fraternity to help with the development of the vehicle. The man responsible for producing the Jaguar XJ220 and three Le Mans 24 hours winners, Alastair Macqueen, heads a team in charge of the vehicles engineering. Johnny Herbert, a former British Formula One race winner has also been asked to act as a consultant to the car.

Johnny Herbert spoke to Auto Express, the respected and popular automotive magazine and website saying how well the Hemera is coming along. He said “Alistair and the team have done a great job so far, I had my first drive of the prototype at a kart track last week, and I couldn’t believe how quickly it got round considering its size. The steering has great feedback, and there’s definitely more to come in terms of handling.”

“Coming from a motorsport background, we have the ability to develop the car quickly when other makers would stop to have a meeting about every little detail.”

BMW M5 comparison

The car is expected to be so great that some experts believe that the Hemera will be on the same level as the BMW M5 in terms of handling and comfort. Its power is set to be immense, with figures of 600 BHP being brandished about.

The car’s appearance is set for a wonderful and attractive transformation too. The roof will appear to different along with the window frames in order to clearly distinguish between the Hemera and the Cayenne.

You can bet the all of Eterniti’s quality will command a very high price.
