Futuristic sports car KTM X-Bow is in fact “by-product” of the Austrian motorcycle company KTM. However, three years of production at this car has developed quite a reputation and a circle of admirers.
To a large extent this was due to the participation of KTM X-Bow in the famous “Race of Champions” where the machine, if not created a furor, it is still on was appreciated by many racing legends, including Michael Schumacher. However, with all its advantages, such as a relatively small price (40 000 euro) and original appearance, giving the car similar to the characters in the movie “Transformers”, in comparison with their competitors KTM X-Bow lost on such indicators as available power. The two-liter turbo engine with 240 hp Audi (310 Nm), though the car gave spirited character, but the opponents were still faster. Yes thus also cheaper. However, against the background of these, such as cars like the Ariel Atom, KTM X-Bow is still looked no garage, a student homebrew, but quite serious design, but still enough of eminent manufacturer. However, the available power would still not enough.
Now, this disadvantage is eliminated – in Europe, began selling more powerful version of KTM X-Bow R. Of course, the first step was carried out revision of the power unit. Thanks to rewrite the program engine control unit and an increase in the boost, the engine now develops 300 hp and 400 Nm. Not bad, especially considering that the weight of the vehicle does not exceed 750 kg. Plus 15 mm (390 mm) was reduced center of gravity, which should have a positive effect on the controllability. From its more modest predecessor “Erk” will be different and more vivid coloring, which apparently must emphasize its militant character.
The car will be available in two versions – Street and Race. When ordering a KTM X-Bow R buyer will determine which version is right for him, and at the price it should not affect. Price, by the way, just changed and changed quite markedly. In the upward course. In Europe, the KTM X-Bow R will cost 58,795 euros and buy a car, you can now have any of the fifty European dealers. By the way, it is still unclear why the Austrians did not send KTM X-Bow overseas. After bottomless US market is the dream of any automaker
