KTM's Audi-powered Crossbow

More information on the Audi/ KTM collaboration has shown up in Auto Motor Und Sport that finally puts a name to lightweight roadster and gives us some definitive power figures. The Crossbow as it will be called shall be powered by a two-liter, turbocharged inline-four producing 220 HP in the base model and 320 HP in range-topping trim. Weight is expected to be below 700 kilograms, or approximately 1,500 pounds.

As seen in the above rendering, similar to the one we posted recently, there will be no roof and it's been rumored that contrary to the image, there may not be a windscreen. That possiblity may limited the chances of the roadster coming stateside as it would require operators to wear a helmet. The Crossbow is expected to make its debut in Geneva next year and will likely carry a price tag of 40,000 euros. Production will likely be limited to around 500 vehicles per year and importation to the U.S. is up in the air.
