We’ve already show you design sketches of the Hemera from Eterniti Motors in the UK. And while the company claims to be a new luxury carmaker, it’s clearly modifying the existing Porsche Cayenne.

However, the Eterniti claims that when launched next year, the Hemera will become the world’s first Super-SUV, providing new levels of SUV luxury, exclusivity and performance.

The carbon composite body will have bespoke Eterniti LED headlamps and lenses. The 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8 will produce more than 620bhp for a top speed in excess of 180mph.

The Hemera will be a first step towards Eterniti becoming a fully-fledged carmaker and will reflect its bespoke luxury objective. Production will start early in 2012, with deliveries by the summer. Prices have yet to be confirmed, but will be around $240,000 for the standard vehicle.

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 program, are currently being developed.
