The Autosport Show which takes place at Birmingham’s NEC from 10-13 January will mark the KTM X-Bow’s (details & pics here) fourth major show outing following its world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show last year, the 2007 Middle East International Motor Show in Dubai and its more recent showing at the end-of-year Bologna Motor Show, in Italy.
The lightweight, high-performance X-Bow which is powered by Audi’s 220 HP 2.0-liter Turbo engine, marks motorcycle manufacturer KTM’s move into the car market, and will be presented to UK driving enthusiasts for the first time finished in the new optional ‘Gleaming White’ bodywork. -Continued after the jump
The series production of the X-Bow is scheduled to commence with a run of 100 limited-edition ‘Dallara Series’ models. The special ‘Dallara Series’ will feature extra equipment to boost the track-day sporty potential of X-bow. Subsequently, KTM will produce up to 1000 X-Bow sportscars per year at its new dedicated car manufacturing facility in Graz, Austria.
