Information About the KTM X-Bow
Austrian manufacturer KTM were, up until 2008, perhaps best known for producing motorcycles. That all changed with the unveiling of the KTM X-Bow (pronounced crossbow) model at the Geneva Motor Show that same year, their first car of any kind.
Even by KTM’s CEO, Stefan Pierer’s admission, this dual seater racing car owes a lot of its motifs and styling, and even its engineering principles to the late Lotus founder Colin Chapman, and his motto of ‘Simplify, then add lightness’.
The X-Bow takes this approach to automotive design and engineering a step forward into the 21st century, producing a track car that is both lightweight and instantly distinctive, and which is supercharged to the hilt.
Powered on a four cylinder 2.0 litre Audi T engine, it bumps out an incredible 290 bhp. This helps it scorch from 0 - 60 mph in a jaw dropping 3.2 seconds, with top speeds in excess of 165 mph.
Cool Facts About the KTM X-Bow
The KTM X-Bow proved to be even more popular than KTM’s pre-production figures had accounted for. They initially only planned to produce 500 units a year, but such was the demand that they increased unit production to 1000 a year, opening a new production plant in Graz in the process.
BBC motoring show Top Gear awarded it as their Sports Car of the Year upon its launch in 2008. Jeremy Clarkson would go on to drive an X-Bow at Donington Park circuit in an episode of the eighteenth series in 2012. He praised its tyre grip in particular, saying that it was like ‘driving on superglue’!
