KTM's 240bhp trackday weapon to be sold in America


Good news for all our American chums; KTM's tangerine flake trackday baby - also known as the X-Bow - is heading your way.

Well, KTM has said it is doing 'whatever is possible to bring the car to the U.S.' at least, so er, it might be heading your way.

It is thought the Audi-powered sports car will be sold in the USA as a street-legal automobile, despite earlier claims that it would remain a track-day only car.

Apparently, KTM has received more than 600 requests from potential customers in the U.S.

Production of the 240bhp X-Bow began in June with the first cars being delivered to customers this month.

Five X-Bows are built every day at KTM-s factory in Graz and 500 cars are expected to be delivered to European customers by the end of the year.

We can't wait.
