A new French automaker called Exagon has lifted the veil off of the Furtive eGT, an all-electric supercar which is scheduled to go on sale across Europe next year.
The Furtive eGT is powered by two water-cooled electric motors that are designed by Siemens. Linked to a three-speed gearbox that minimizes torque loss during gear changes, the motors send the equivalent of 402 horsepower and 380 lb-ft. of torque to the rear wheels, enough to propel the car from zero to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and on to an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph.
The eGT has an average range of approximately 200 miles thanks to a lithium-ion battery pack that is built by Saft. Through extensive testing the company has found that the pack retains an 80 percent capacity even after going through 3,000 charging cycles.
Customers who want to drive further between charges can order the car with an optional internal combustion engine that acts as a range extender. Where the engine traces its roots was not revealed but it gives the eGT a total range of about 456 miles.
To minimize the weight gain that is brought on by the electric drivetrain, the supercar's central shell is built out of carbon fiber and its front and rear subframes are made out of aluminum. The car tips the scale at 3,600 pounds.
Unlike many other supercars the eGT can fit four adults in relative comfort. Exagon says that it can build the interior to just about any specification, from a luxury-oriented to track-inspired.
When it goes on sale early next year, the Furtive eGT will start at €404,000, a figure which converts to roughly $526,000. Exagon is not planning on developing a dealer network and customers will order their car straight from the factory in the north of France.
