The KTM X-Bow made history ever since 2007 when it was officially unveiled. The X-Bow is powered by a Audi TFSI engine that develops 220 hp. The performance values of the KTM X-Bow outstrip those of super-sport cars with more than twice the power. With a deadweight of approx. 700 kilos, the KTM X-Bow accelerates to 60 mph in just 3.9 sec. It can hit a top speed of 135 mph.

But this was just the beginning; KTM is preparing two new versions for the X-Bow. Both R and T are characterized by important changes from base. The first one, the X-Bow T will go on sale next year and will have the same small engine as in the original. It will develop a total of 300 hp and 400 Nm of torque.

The second one, the R version, will go on sale in 2012. KTM revealed nothing about this version, but it is known that it will feature a new windshield to divert air over the cockpit.

Once quoted that race cars where not build to be beautiful but they become beautiful when they win! I can see the drive experience is there, just don’t expect poetic sound!

This thing looks like a transformer that stopped halfway but still awesome looking.
