Live shots surface of the KTM X-Bow
The KTM X-Bow is very poorly kept secret. First there were rumors of a track day car being built by bike manufacturer KTM in collaboration with Audi. Then there were wild sketches of an Ariel Atom-like skeleton car. Next we learn that the car has been officially dubbed the X-Bow. Most recently there were official shots of the X-Bow provided by KTM itself. Right before its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, we've now come across live shots of the X-Bow in the flesh. Where the Ariel Atom eschews all pretenses of being designed in the traditional sense, the X-Bow appears to at least have a style and presence thanks to the few orange colored body panels. With a curb weight of 1,500 lbs. and an Audi-sourced 2.0L turbo, however, you'll only catch a glimpse of an orange blur if you ever encounter an X-Bow in person. We'll stand face to gaping maw with one in Geneva next month and bring back more detailed shots of what we've been calling the "apex assasin" round these parts.
