KTM X-Bow GT screams into Geneva show

By James CLEARY, 07 Mar 2013 News

KTM X-Bow GT, MOTOR magazine, Geneva Motor Show

One of the most outrageous super performance cars to debut at this year's Geneva Motor Show is barely a car at all.

One of the most outrageous super performance cars to debut at this year's Geneva Motor Show is barely a car at all.

A new GT version of KTM's radical X-Bow features a full windscreen to partially civilise one of the rawest driving experiences available in a road registerable car.

Powered by a 210kW/420Nm four cylinder engine, the skeletal X-Bow weighs just 847kg, for a staggering power-to-weight ratio of 248kW/tonne.

The rear-wheel drive road racer is fitted with an old-school, six-speed manual gearbox for ultimate purity and maximum enjopyment.
