X-Bow technology

Revolutionary. Puristic. Radical.

The production KTM X-BOW is KTM’s interpretation of a super sports car for the 21st century. "We took Colin Chapman's idea of a spartan, lightweight sports car reduced to the bare essentials and transfered it into the new millennium – with as many technological innovations as possible", says KTM CEO Stefan Pierer, of the first four-wheeled model in KTM’s history

The world’s first production car with a full carbon composite monocoque. Produced by carbon-fibre specialists Wethje the monocoque weighs just    80 kg yet has exceptional safety levels. Aerodynamics derived from open-wheel racing, jointly developed by KTM Technologies and Dallara produces 100 kg of down force at 200 km/h, allowing up to 2 G of lateral acceleration – superior to any other street-legal car

What is probably the most exciting super sports car of our times was produced in only 18 months. The KTM X-BOW takes a large part of its uniqueness from its extraordinary styling. Gerald Kiska and the team at KISKA were responsible for this, creating an iconic modern sports car with their design. One that seamlessly combines form with function

Pure racing courses through every inch of the KTM X-Bow. A 300 hp
2.0 litre Audi TFSI engine uses direct injection, combining the benefits of turbocharging with highly effective charge air cooling. With a modular concept typical to racing, it is quick, easy and relatively inexpensive to repair. As long as the monocoque remains in tact in an impact, any other damaged parts bolt off easily for quick replacement. Formula derived tire and suspension technology from Michelin and WP suspension - with adjustable high- and low-speed settings as well as rebound damping – allows exceptional handling.

The new GT version of the Austrian super sports car makes an even wider, lower, more compact and more powerful impression. Even the version with a windscreen and soft top is 100% pure, radical and race bred. Now it’s possible to experience the 21st century sports car technology for yourself - without a helmet. This latest model is embedded with the same racing DNA that makes the KTM X-BOW driving experience so special. Try it yourself and feel what it is like to always be "Ready to Race
