The KTM X-Bow is already targeted at the .01% of the population who desires the ultimate in trackday-nutcase transportation. For that sub-segment of masochists who desire even more thrills, there’s the newly released X-Bow R.
Powered by a 300-horsepower Audi S3 engine, the four-cylinder turbo powerplant will be positioned lower in the car to provide a better balanced chassis. Two variants will be offered, a Sport version that’s road legal, and a Race model that can only be driven on the track.
KTM has yet to announce specific details, but said that current X-Bow owners will be given the chance to upgrade their current car to R specification.
