For those out there looking for a relatively affordable track-day car which can also be legally used on the road, you have a few options. Some of the most notable include the Ariel Atom, BAC Mono and of course, the futuristic looking KTM X-Bow.
Built by an Austrian motorcycle manufacturer, the KTM X-Bow is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Audi sourced engine which when first revealed, delivered a total of 237 hp at 5500 rpm and 230 lb-ft of torque. For the 2011 model year, that was increased to 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. Whichever X-Bow you choose, you can be assured that it’ll be fast thanks to the light kerb weight of just 790 kg!
So from a power standpoint, the KTM X-Bow is a true performer. From a styling perspective however, it has divided opinion. The following KTM X-Bow rendered by Jack Darton is rolling on a set of aftermarket HRE wheels and looks all that more impressive than stock!
