KTM says that the completely black special edition will feature lots of carbon fiber body panels, limited slip differential and a removable steering wheel (huh?).

One year after the world premiere of its striking lightweight X-Bow sports car, KTM will reveal the production-ready version of the car, for the first time, at the 78th Geneva Motor Show.

The car being shown at Geneva features a number of modifications to the KTM X-Bow previously shown in concept form. The car will be a completely black, fully carbon-equipped X-Bow Dallara edition – one of just 100 being made – and features a long list of extras, including carbon-fibre body panels, a limited slip differential, a removable steering wheel and a racing chassis tuned by Italian sports car specialists Dallara. A plaque with a unique serial number and special graphics mark out the limited-run Dallara X-Bow cars, which are sure to become coveted collectors' items.

The debut of the production-ready KTM X-Bow coincides with the start of full series production of the car at a new four-wheel KTM factory in Graz, Austria. This facility has been specially created to handle the production of the X-Bow and the company's new four-wheel off-road All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs).

KTM would welcome you to join its Press Conference on 4 March at 17:30hrs, when you can hear more about the X-Bow Dallara edition and KTM's future plans.

KTM will be on Stand 2050, which is in Hall 2.
