Two years after the Exagon Furtive eGT was revealed, the production version of French electric sports car is set to debut at the 2012 edition of the Paris Motor Show. While the newer version may soon steal the spotlight with its upsized set of 148-kW (198.5 horsepower) motors and a slightly larger 57-kWh battery, the original is not going gently into that good night.

Indeed, the silver all-electric beauty was, not long ago, spotted at a well-known track near the town of Nürburg, Germany, spending some quality time with one Sabine Schmitz. The "Queen of the Nürburgring," as she is known, wasn't out to steal the Audi R8 e-tron's recent record, though. Rather, it seems like she was just putting the prototype through its paces and getting up to speed, as it were, with the whole electric drivetrain thing.

So, what did she think? Well, she certainly seemed impressed with the chassis and mechanicals. But it was the seemingly effortless acceleration and battery-induced low center of gravity that had her saying things like, "it's like floating on a cloud."

But don't just take our word for it. Scroll on down for a brief video featuring shots of Miss Schmitz throttling through the Nordschleife, sharing her impressions via the magic of voice-over.
