The already hardcore KTM X-Bow is going to a new level with the Black Edition.

The body for the car is constructed entirely of carbon fiber, helping to shed weight, increase rigidity and backup the Black Edition name. KTM didn’t says exactly how much weight the new body has saved, but it will surely bring th regular X-Bow’s already scant 1,740-lb curb weight down.

The Black Edition gets its own unique 18- and 19-inch BBS wheels and some special stickers to help set it apart, aongside the obvious carbon fiber body.

Power still comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 316 horsepower, paired to a manual transmission.

Only five X-Bow Black editions will be built in total and will sell for a price of 99,000 Euros. North American availabilty was not mentioned.
