The most hardcore sports car to hit the market since the Ariel Atom will come to the UK next week. The eagerly awaited two-seat KTM X-Bow, will take its UK debut at the Autosport International Racing Car Show at the Birmingham NEC, which opens to the public on Saturday 12 January.
This track-tuned but road-legal racing car - built by a brand known only for its motorbikes - will cost around £35k, making it a direct rival for the Lotus 2-Eleven and Ariel Atom 300. It goes on sale later this year and will be built in Graz, Austria.
A ‘Gleaming White’ version of the X-Bow will be shown for the first time at the Autosport event. If you want one, you’ll have to get on the waiting list soon – KTM’s already taken more advanced orders than expected but now intends to build 1000 X-Bows per year.
