The KTM X-Bow is nearing to the U.S. shoreline, and it is releasing pricing ahead to those who are interested in such a racer model. To start the kick-off, for the basic “Street” model is about $88,500.
Moving up the ladder is the Clubsport version priced at about $103,500, then the Superlight is about $134,500, and the top-of-the-line GT4 at about $139,000. But these prices do not come with the Audi engine and transaxle, because the X-Bow can’t be legally sold in America as a whole unit. The engine and transaxle will cost you another $7,900. This is a very expensive fast-toy indeed.
In comparison, the basic Ariel Atom model starts at $49,980 in the U.S., and it is not a complete unit either. But if you want the top-range Ariel Atom V8, it will cost about $160,000. And hopefully, we could have a could showdown when both vehicles are available in the States. Check out more details of the KTM X-Bow in the press release below.
The KTM X-Bow is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter Audi engine that is similarly found in the S3 model. The turbocharged engine produces 300 horsepower on a very light body at merely 1,742 pounds. Its 0-60 mph is in the low three seconds. It has won the last GT4 Sports Light series race, by which it took home two class victories.
