KTM X-Bow: Pricing, delivery details

The 240bhp KTM X-Bow. Think of it as a Hayabusa on four wheels

KTM will start deliveries of the X-Bow sportscar by mid-2008. To be manufactured in Austria, the standard model will be powered by a 240 horsepower, 2.0-litre TFSI engine sourced from Audi and the car will be priced at about US$60,000. The 700kg X-Bow will be able to accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds and is likely to have a top speed of more than 250km/h.

The KTM X-Bow ‘Dallara’ model gets additional bits like a limited slip differential (mechanical) on the rear axle and a race-tuned chassis. Like the standard car, the Dallara has a carbonfibre monocoque chassis, but also gets lots of other carbon bits which help reduce weight further. No word on pricing for this model yet, but stay tuned. In the meanwhile, get more tech details on the KTM website here.
