Exagon Furtive-eGT Ready For Production

Since 2010, the Exagon Furtive-eGT has been teased and promised as a one-day production car, and that day may finally be here. The final production version of the all-electric Exagon Furtive-eGT has been revealed, and it stays strikingly true to the original concept.

The Exagon Furtive-eGT is most famous for racing around the Nurburgring with ‘Ring Queen Sabine Schmitz at the wheel, with claimed performance of 0 to 62 MPH in just 3.5 seconds. The 400 horsepower rating comes from a pair of Siemans electric mtors, while a Formula One-inspired carbon fiber monocoque weighs in at just 273 pounds. Match that to an aluminum sub-frame and a carbon fiber for a total weight of 1,640 kg, or about 3,600 pounds, despite a hefty lithium-ion battery pack.

Exagon claims the Furtive-eGT can go up to 300 kilometers, or about 186 miles on a single charge from its 53 kWh battery pack. That sounds about right if you compare it to the 60 kWh Tesla Model S, which is rated at 200 miles per charge but weighs in at over 4,500 pounds. For additional mileage (and cost), a small range-extender is available, and top speed is electronically limited to 155 MPH.

It may have taken four years, but this electric sports car is finally here, looking much as the original concept did…and with a $500,000+ price tag. Yeah, don’t expect to see too many of these in your travels, though the fact that an electric sports car such as the Furtive eGT even exists speaks volumes for the rapid shift in transportation tastes.
