Eterniti's Hemera "Super SUV" has yet to hit showrooms, but, perhaps ridiculously premature, the British brand has already begun to hint at its next offering.

While the Hemera's Porsche Cayenne origins are obvious, the teaser sketches released this week point to a new Eterniti supercar that has been styled from the ground-up.

Details for the new model have yet to be revealed - including whether it, too, will utilise a donor platform. If its proportions are anything to go by, we could be looking at a worked-over Koenigsegg Agera or Pagani Hyuara.

The brand has already revealed however that its focus is on re-designing and overhauling existing cars for "high rollers" looking for something unique.

As for the Hemera, which will go on sale in April, Eterniti has rebuilt the Cayenne to make it lower and wider, and according to Eterniti engineer and ex-Jaguar boffin, Alastair Macqueen, everything below the belt-line is brand-new.

The interior has also been torn out in favour of passenger-comfort, with the back seats pushed back and raised to free up some leg room and give the car a limousine feel.

It could be the world's hardest-going limousine however, with Macqueen describing it as "the SUV version of a BMW M5." We thought that was the X5 M, but, hey.

While it will be available in some Western markets, the Hemera will be aimed primarily at China, where buyers have proven to be less bothered by styling similarities across brands and which one came first.

"We’re going for a younger buyer than for cars such as the S-Class and long-wheelbase A8, which in China are regarded as cars for older people," Macqueen told England's Autocar magazine.

"We want Hemera buyers to be able to sit in the back and be chauffeured, but occasionally get behind the wheel and enjoy the car."

Eterniti plans to build 80 Hemera cars in its first year, growing to 150 in its second year and 200 per year beyond that.
