At the 2010 Paris Motor Show a French company called Exagon
Motors is set to unveil an electric-powered sports car. Exagon
Motors is a division of Exagon Engineering, a specialist motorsport
engineering company who are involved in WTCC and GT championships.
The Exagon Motors Furtive-eGT was developed through a collaboration
with Siemens - who have helped with the drivetrain by supplying
two electric motors. Each motor provides 170 hp, making a total
of 340 hp available. That means the Exagon Furtive-eGT can haul
itself to 62 mph (100km/h) in just 3.5 seconds. Top speed has
been capped at 155 mph to conserve range. Without the limiter
it could carry on to 186 mph.
The Exagon Furtive eGT has a range somewhere in the region of
124 - 248 miles on battery power alone. We're assuming the large
difference in minimum and maximum range is dependent on how
you aggressively you choose to drive. For longer journeys, a
small generator motor kicks in to top up the battery levels.
Exagon Motors thankfully spent the time and money to give the
Furtive eGT a stunning body to compliment the advanced electric
drivetrain. The front end has a neat and taught appearance which
is not unlike the face of the 2010
Peugeot SR1 concept car. The chiseled door panels are also
reminiscent of the same concept. Any way you look at it though,
the Exagon Motors Furtive-eGT is a good looking motor.
