X-BOW R - THE BENCHMARK IN THE SUPER SPORTS CAR SEGMENT
When the X-BOW was launched in 2008, it was a milestone in the history of the KTM brand and at the same time a new reference in the small but elite segment of radical lightweight sports cars. From the beginning KTM has relied on premium materials, high tech and specialized know-how for the first car it has produced. The result is a sports car with purebred racing technology that is approved for road use. Included is an avant-garde monocoque made from carbon fibre such as is standard in Formula One because of its safety and weight advantage. Through the complete omission of electronic driving assist systems and comfort features, the X-BOW offers purist driving pleasure that can only find its equivalent in either riding a motorcycle or driving a formula racing car. The X-BOW R is the most powerful version of the Austrian super sports car so far and it is the result of concentrated development. In the rear of the "R", there is a 300 hp 2.0 litre TFSI engine from Audi with a maximum torque of 400 Nm ensuring an unbelievable driving experience both on and off the racing circuit – the X-BOW R is of course homologated for use on the road.
