Yes, its resemblance to the Porsche Cayenne may be cunning, but what you're looking at here is the "world's first Super-SUV," created by British carmaker Eterniti Motors. It's bulgy and aggressive-looking, but we just can't shake the fact that this is clearly a Cayenne ripoff. Still, we like the Cayenne, so how bad the Eterniti creation be?

Called the Hemera, the Eterniti Motors sport-ute will allegedly go into production at the end of 2012. It will be hand-built in London, and will feature amenities like power rear reclining seats, iPads and a drink chiller for rear passengers – part of what Eterniti calls the Hemera's "limousine-like" cabin. Powertrain details are unknown as of this writing, but Eterniti states that the Hemera will produce 620 horsepower, have four-wheel drive and will reach a top speed of over 180 miles per hour.

We'll get the full story on the Hemera next week at the Frankfurt Motor Show. In the meantime, hit the jump for Eterniti's press release, and be sure to check out the Hemera from a few angles in our attached high-res image gallery.

NEW BRITISH CAR COMPANY INTRODUCES THE WORLD'S FIRST SUPER-SUV

New British car company Eterniti Motors is today releasing full images of the prototype of its first model, which will be shown at next week's Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA).

The Hemera, the world's first Super-SUV, will bring new levels of luxury and performance to the SUV segment when production starts in 2012. Hand-built in London, it will feature 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.

However, its relatively compact dimensions, 4x4 ruggedness and dynamic performance mean that it is more practical than a limousine and offers considerable driver appeal, with over 620bhp on tap and a top speed in excess of 180mph.

The Eterniti stand at the IAA will be in Hall 6.1. There will be a press call at 14.15 on 13 September, when media can find out more, see the Hemera and meet engineering boss and multiple Le Mans winner Alastair Macqueen, together with brand ambassador and Formula Grand Prix winning driver Johnny Herbert.

      Call me old-fashioned, but it looks more like an AWD hatchback than an SUV. If that's an SUV, then so is my Mazda3.

      Actually the rear styling and wider track look better than the Cayenne. I think the current Cayenne looks to predestrian compared to the past broad shouldered models.

      Looks like a Porsche and an Infiniti put together. This is not progress, just ask the Korean's when they copy!

      like every British car company, they will go under and will be bought by some foreigners.
