We’ll forgive you if you’ve never heard of Exagon Motors – we hadn’t either until they revealed this, the Furtive-eGT – but since most of you probably care more for petrol-driven cars than electric ones, you wouldn’t have known about them. Why should you take notice now, then?
Well the Furtive-eGT is the French companies answer to the future of supercars. The eGT, as its name suggests, is an electrically driven machine, developed in cooperation with SAFT (Lithium-Ion battery manufacturers) and Michelin, driven by 2 electric motors from Siemens.
The monocoque chassis is made of ultra-light carbon fibre, weighing a mere 124Kg, yet remaining incredibly stiff and rigid. The total mass of the eGT is undisclosed, but driven by two 148kW electric motors, the combined 296kW and 516Nm output is capable of driving the eGT from standstill to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds before running into the electronic limiter at 250km/h.
The 4-seater electric supercar’s styling is particularly striking, with a bespoke interior made to the customer’s specification.
We’re as petrol-driven as they come, but if electric cars all look like this in future, we wouldn’t mind owning one or two… for the environment, you know.
