Promising to deliver a perfect mixture of both cutting-edge technology and style that is reminiscent of French haute couture, the Furtive-eGT from Exagon motors will be gliding into the Salute to Style event at Hurlington Club this July.
The four-seater sports car comes with bespoke running gear, which is attached to two purpose-built Siemens electric motors. These power the first monocoque light carbon four-seater body that has been seen in the world so far. The car was developed by Exagon in cooperation with SAFT, who provided latest generation lithium batteries, and Michelin, who delivered tyres and axles.
It will be gliding into Salute to Style, one of London’s prestigious summer garden parties, between July 16th and 19th when the event comes to Hurlington Club, which is recognised globally as a high profile private members’ club.
This year Salute to Style will start off on Wednesday July 16th with a Bastille Day ball with a 1960s-theme. As well as the display of high-end cars that will be on show throughout the event, visitors will get to enjoy a range of private collections, art and luxury goods galleries as well as a French market that will include food, drinks and pastimes.
Keeping in line with the general feel at Salute to Style events, the Furtive-eGT is designed to represent the highest level of evolution in super sportscars at present. It comes with a revolutionary electric drivetrain while giving a nod to the classic lines from automotive design and history.
Exagon has drawn on Formula One technology when selecting and developing materials for the car as it comes with a carbon-fibre and honeycomb tub, while the rear structure is cast in aluminum.
In total, the entire body of the vehicle weighs a mere 124 kg, which gives it a fantastic weight to stiffness ratio.
Powering the car are two electric motors, which were sourced from Siemens and can each give out more than 400 brake horsepower. Pedal response time is also measured at only one tenth of a second, which means the Furtive-eGT can go from zero to 60 mph in only 3.5 seconds.
Founder of Exagon Motors Luc Marchetti said: “We have the same approach as jewel-makers to high-end manufacturing and bespoke craftsmanship.
“France has a unique focus on virtuosity and creativity when producing works of art. Every Furtive-eGT made so far has been created specially for its owner, and leading designers have penned each one according to the individual’s interpretation.”
Speaking about the car’s place within Salute to Style, organiser Michael Scott said: “It is the perfect car to showcase at Salute to Style, an event organised for the sole purpose of celebrating elegance and human endeavour through the decades. Here is a car which does not need to shout in order to be heard.”
