Unless you’re Michael Stoschek and have a Ferrari F430 Scuderia turned Lancia Stratos to play in, chances are you won’t be able to ride in a brand new Lancia Stratos for anything short of an arm and leg.

But all that’s about to change thanks to the people over at Montenergy.

The Italian tuning firm has come up with a body kit for the KTM X-Bow called the "Stratosferica." The name alone illustrates the tuning firm’s ultimate goal; to make a Stratos from the more affordable street-homologated sports car. This transformation was achieved by putting a top on the once top-less track car and giving it the look, depending on how trained your eyes are to detail, of a Lancia Stratos.

On top of the body kit, Montenergy is also offering a performance boost for the X-Bow, one that takes the output of its Audi-sourced 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine from the standard 237 horsepower to 310 ponies. For information’s sake, that’s more powerful than the most powerful X-Bow - the 300-horsepower X-Bow R - in the market.

The whole enchilada of modifications will set you back €12,000, which is about $17,000 based on current exchange rates. Add that to the base price of $88,500 for the KTM X-Bow and the whole shebang will set you back about $105,500. Considering that, as of right now, that’s one of the only options for a brand new "Stratos-like" vehicle, the price isn’t all that steep. Even if rumors are true and a limited run of Stoschek’s new Lancia Stratos are produced - not likely, but stranger things have happened - it would cost around $545,000. That makes this tuning package for the KTM X-Bow that much better.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

It has a contradicting idea of concept, well it look huge, but definitely have short or an arm and leg and more of a giant wheels.very exotic and weird as roadster car.

The X-Bow’s design seems too little too much impractical for regular use on public roads. I like the concept and very details of the engines and exteriors of this car, look like in an transformer movie.

hehe. It’s kind of funny on how this aficionado turns into a resourceful guy to form a Strato-like vehicle! I wonder on how he get details for it. That’s quite an amazing ride.

The Lancia really is a great vehicle. Me either I was impressed with the styling of the vehicle. I like the effort set by Montenergy but I don’t think that the styling is impressive and sporty like the Lancia.

When I first read about the debut of the Lancia Stratos, honestly, I got so excited, and I don’t know why. Taking note that I don’t have an enough budget to afford this car. I’m so thankful with the Montenergy that gives everyone a chance to drive this awesome vehicle, although it’s not that powerful compare to the original version.

Whoa, it’s kind of generous from the KTM to build a vehicle that will makes us feel like we are actually driving a Stratos. I hope that both car produce the same amount.

The design of the car is kind of different from its racing bred version. Its kind of huge. However, I’m still impressed with the power output of the vehicle. I bet this would be a speedy vehicle.
