Now lets be real here, we’ve all wanted to be able to go cruising around in a legit Formula 1 car. Now this car isn’t quite there, but it’s pretty close.
The new KTM X-Bow R is an update on the original X-Bow and has increased the horsepower from 240 to 300. Its 2.0 TFS1 turbocharged engine sourced from Audi exerts 295 lb-ft of torque at 3300 rpm and allows this car to reach 60mph in a mere 3.9 seconds. This is of course helped along by the absence of any and all non-essential weight adding components such as, a stereo system, sound dampening panels and front windshield. These nonexistent features help keep the X-Bow R well under 2000lbs. The car comes in three colors, grey (shown below), orange and white.
So obviously this car has a lot of pros and cons. While it is definitely fast and chic, it is more importantly street legal. However, I’m not sure how I feel about the lack of a stereo system. What good is it driving a sweet car if I can’t blare my favorite beats? Also because there is no windshield, you would be nuts to drive this without a helmet. Let us know what you guys think down in the comments.
