Exagon Furtive e-GT – Click above to watch the video after the jump

Born of Exagon Engineering, constructor of many a race car (including the eight ice-melting machines that contested the Trophée Andros Electrique last season), Exagon Motors has uncloaked a new street machine for a handful of French journalists, and the car's performance numbers will probably raise more eyebrows than its looks.

The 2+2 is said to achieve a Tesla Roadster-beating 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds with twin Siemens motors producing 340 horsepower. The all-important, all-electric range is similar to the Silicon Valley speedster as well, with 400 kilometers (248.5 miles) claimed as the distance possible before the need for its on-board gasoline motor to kick in to take you the next 400 kms.

It appears the French manufacturer could begin production as soon as 2012. As far as the price goes, we're going to guess this is is one of those, "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" type of deals. Still, we'll ask anyway when we check it out for ourselves in the metal. Or carbon fiber. Or whatever it is. In the meantime, you can get a great look, inside and out, in the video reveal awaiting you after the break.

      This looks like what the Scion tC should be...

      FT86

      Looks like a next-gen Hyundai Elantra and Audi R8 mated.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Again with the "looks like a Hyundai ______ to me". This happen at least once a day....

        Hyundai hasn't pirated a line or 3 (Genesis sedan) from other manufacturers, huh?

        the sides are reminiscent of the tiburon, which really isn't a bad looking car by the way.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I saw that and though "next-gen Chevy Monte Carlo".

        That car's fully mullet nascar image is burned into my head.

        The thing looks like the Toyobaru FT-86, no?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Agreed. It screams R8.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Ya, I was thinking FT-86 front, e-tron rear.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Same here, this was screaming Hyundai to me when I saw it.

      Great looking car. The headlights are small and understated by today's standards, not the enormous pieces of plastic stretching back to the A pillar like on most cars these days. I appreciate that.

      I liked it but just 1 mpg increase? whats the point other than cheaper insurance?? I'd just get the g37 and sacrifice 1 mpg for an extra 110hp..... !!!!

      A car like this is relatively easy when you don't have to work to a price point. It probably costs north of $100,000. Try doing the same thing and sell it for $40,000 at profit. That's where the challenge is.

        Meh... You get voted up but you're off base. It's pretty easy to build a reasonably capable electric car. You could build them in your garage and still make a profit at 40K.

        If you had any idea what's involved in building a standard car VS an electric one; or the actual economics involved, this would be obvious to you.

      def a good looking car, inside is a bit plain but the overall design is on point....
      • 4 Years Ago
      if a small engineering company in France can make this the big manufacturers clearly had no interest in building something like the Volt until cars the the Prius became popular
      • 4 Years Ago
      Great looking car!!
      • 4 Years Ago
      That car looks real nice. Good lines!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Dan Frederiksen is going to need a pretty big box of tissue after reading this one.
      • 4 Years Ago
      BRAVO!!!

      That is one beautiful car from any angle.
      Vive la Différence or should I say Vive la Similitude...
      Because this car takes cues from some great looking cars and meshes it all together to perfection.
      The gas engine to help you out if you can't recharge over night is awesome.

      I speak french and the voice over does say that this car is still a couple years from production.

      Time to save my coins...
