KTM X-Bow is the first car ever to be produced by the Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM. The car was developed in partnership with Kiska Design, Audi and the Italian race car company Dallara. The X-Bow uses a turbocharged Audi TFSI engine that produces 177 kW (237 hp) at 6000 rpm and 310 N·m (228.6 lb·ft) of torque peaks at a level between 2200 and 4000 rpm.<ref>Engine ktm-x-bow.com retrieved on December 19 2007</ref>

Originally the company planned a production of 500 units a year, but because of high demand the company has increased production to 1000 cars a year and has built a new plant near Graz for it.<ref>KTM X-Bow gets own factory autocar.co.uk retrieved on December 19 2007</ref>

The car will be priced at £38,282in the UK without VAT.

The car is priced at €47,790 in Germany without Mwst.

Reiter Engineering participates with two X-Bows in the 2008 FIA GT4 Championship (#100 Catharina Felser, #101 Christopher Haase and Dennis Retera).

Recent Changes

  • For 2011, KTM adds an even more extreme variant of the X-Bow called the X-Bow R. The R ups the standard car's 240 hp to 300hp by way of the Audi S3's 2.0 TFSI engine. It will be available in two equipment packages: a road legal / homologated "Sport" package and a more track orientated "Race" pack. [1]
