The Furtive eGT is a new electric supercar from French company Exagon Motors, based near the Magny-Cours race circuit. The EV is expected to cost in the range of € 350,000 – 400,000 and will officially be released later this year at the Paris Motor Show.
Tim aka Shmee150 was taken for a few laps in both this car and also a few in the McLaren MP4-12C and at the time the drama of the MP4-12C seemed to make it the clear winner by far; it was only looking back that he discovered the lap time you see here is an entire two seconds faster than the 12C managed.
During the ride Tim had to zoom in the video so that the interior is not shown (still a prototype), but according to his experience it was absolutely incredible how flat to the road the car stayed by having the battery weight and center of gravity so low to the ground.
Electric propulsion offers a constant torque of 480Nm from 0 to 5,000rpm. The Furtive-eGT has a capacity for acceleration – 0 to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds – and can hit 287km/h, but the maximum speed is limited electronically to 250km/h. The Furtive-eGT is powered by two latest-generation motors created by Siemens Corporate Technology, each providing an output of 125 kW. The total power equivalent to 340hp at 5,000 to 10,000rpm.
