An aggressive design and sporty potential: the X-BOW is not just a milestone in the KTM brand’s more than 50-year history, it also sets a new benchmark in the small, but elite segment of radical, lightweight sports cars. This exceptional position is the result of its original design concept: for its first car, KTM employs the finest materials, high-tech and the know-how of respected development partners, such as Audi and Dallara.

The result is a street-legal sports car with pure-bred racing technology, such as an avantgarde, carbon fibre monocoque, which is now standard equipment in Formula 1 racing because of the weight and safety advantages it offers.

Thanks to the basic version’s light weight and the 177 kW (240 hp) Audi 2.0 TFSI engine, the KTM X-BOW sets new standards and outstrips supersport cars: with a weight of approx. 790 kilos, the KTM X-BOW accelerates to 100 kmh in just 3.9 seconds. And its fuel consumption and pollution emissions are comparable to those of a compact car with a high-quality engine.

But the X-BOW isn’t just a racing machine, even if it is going to accomplish spectacular performance feats on racing circuits. With its modern technologies and exceptional solutions, it’s much more oriented towards sporty drivers who seek a purist’s driving experience. By foregoing electronic assistants and extraneous, weighty comfort features, the X-BOW offers an unfiltered driving adventure.

This is made possible by the X-BOW's double triangular wishbones, its transparent technology and its reduced concept, i.e. no roof, doors or windscreen. This sports car has only a 70-millimeter, transparent wind deflector. So driving the KTM X-BOW becomes an experience with an immediacy that otherwise can only be felt when driving a motorcycle or a Formula 1 racecar.
