Abarth’s rumored mid-engine sports car will apparently use the KTM X-Bow as a starting point, replacing the X-Bow’s Volkswagen mill with a Fiat Multi-Air engine good for 180 horsepower.
The terms of the deal would see Abarth purchase the rolling chassis from KTM and install their own engines. It’s not yet known if the Abarth would retain the radical styling of the X-Bow or if it will retain actual bodywork. Naturally, the car will be extremely limited production, and have a sticker price of roughly $80,000 when it debuts in 2013.
