The KTM X-Bow, perhaps the only car more bonkers than the Ariel Atom, will finally be coming to the United States, and like other formerly forbidden fruit, a bit of trickery is required to get the car legally imported.

While KTM will build the cars to the customers specifications, the vehicle must be shipped and sold without any kind of drivetrain, to allow for registration as a “kit car”. British Racing Group, a Pennsylvania based company, will supply you with the necessary Audi 2.0T drivetrain, but no price was given for the component. Despite putting out a tame-sounding 240 horsepower, the X-Bow is good for a sub-4 second 0-60 mph sprint, is capable of pulling 1.5g on the skidpad and will stop from 60-0 mph in only 99 feet. And you get to wear a cool helmet while you drive it!
