    Video: Watch one man drive a KTM X-Bow at the track, then get the girl
    1375288200

    C'etait un Rendezvous is a legendary film with a very simple premise – a man drives very quickly to be with the woman he loves, careening through the streets of Paris with a blatant disregard for things like road signs, speed limits and pigeons. This film, from South African director ...

    Report: KTM X-Bow to get Audi TT-RS five-cylinder turbo
    1363702500

    The Audi TT-RS continues to occupy a warm spot in my personal top five list of cars thanks in no small part to the lusty turbocharged 2.5-liter five cylinder under the hood. With 360 horsepower and 343 pound-feet of torque in stock configuration, the engine is a shining star of internal ...

    1362599940

    We've never quite understood exactly how air manages to negotiate the KTM X-Bow's unusually contoured carbon monocoque form, but nature's stiff breeze ought to have a clearer path over the trackday hero now that this new GT model includes a windshield and side windows. The added foul weather ...

    1361991600

    Being a purist is hard work. That's true with just about everything, but it's particularly true when it comes to lightweight roadsters. Jettisoning all manner of refinements including sound deadening, ride compliance and weather protection makes for a more vivid motoring experience, but it also ...

    Report: KTM working on more conventional X-Bow with doors, windscreen
    1339540260

    n You could call the KTM X-Bow a great many things, but "practical" is not one of them. That could be changing – if ever so slightly – in the near future, however, if the latest reports are anything to go by. Speaking with the blokes over at Top Gear, KTM chief exec Stefan Pierer ...

    Video: MTM-tuned KTM X-Bow R lays down the law in Monaco
    1338593340

    Policing the streets of Monte Carlo and the outlaying Monegasque countryside (little of it though there is) presents a unique set of challenges.

    We have a sizable soft spot for the KTM Duke 125. The small-displacement machine is perfect for back-road flinging and in-town commuting. Unfortunately, KTM has decided the wide-open spaces of America aren't fit for the lightweight street machine. That leaves us longingly watching YouTube videos ...

    1314117000

    If you miss the classic wedge shape of the Lancia Stratos, there are a few things you can do about it. You could buy yourself a vintage example, which will set you back a pretty penny.
