Salute to Style will welcome French manufacturer Exagon Motors’ powerful electric sportscar Furtive-eGT on The Hurlingham Club’s famous lawns on 16-19 July.
The Furtive-eGT’s bespoke running gear, developed by Exagon in cooperation with SAFT (who provides the latest generation Li-ion batteries) and Michelin (axles and tyres), is married to two purpose-built Siemens electric motors powering the first monocoque light carbon four-seat body in the world.
Premium, advanced materials based on Formula One technology have been used to develop a sportscar with a main carbon-fibre/honeycomb tub and a cast aluminum rear structure; the entire body only weighs 124 kg, giving, as a result, an exceptional weight/stiffness ratio.
Power comes from two Siemens-sourced, bespoke electric motors, each giving out over 400 bhp. The Furtive-eGT’s accelerator pedal response time is one-tenth of a second, and the car hits 62mph in just 3.5 seconds.
