Spectacularly Performing KTM X-Bow


Audi and Dallara helped Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM to come up with the X-Bow – its first ever car.

And what a car!

Stunningly stylish to look at.

And a sensation on the track.

Dallara of Varano Italy helped design the 70kg carbon fibre monocoque.

Weighing in at 700kg and coupled with 220hp from an Audi turbocharged inline-4 TFSI powerplant, this racer is designed for speed.

3.9 seconds is all it takes to reach 100kph from standstill.

This rwd uses a VW manual 6-gear transmission.

Brakes supplied by Brembo.

Four-point safety belts are used.

2 Roll bars.

Dallara’s expertise enables the X-Bow to achieve a phenomenal downforce of about 200 kg at a speed of 200 kmh.

Hmm – so what, you say?

That simply means it has about three times more downforce  than most other supersport cars. Great for tackling the bends like an F1 machine.
