The KTM X-Bow has been brought to the U.S. by the British Racing Group (BRG). Specifically, the BRG has taken upon itself to bring the majority of the car to the US in the form of a kit car. This means that customers have to make some efforts to acquire the engine and the transaxle. The EPA, NHSTA and state departments of transportation classify the North American specification KTM X-Bow as a special construction vehicle. The BRG said that as such, it is sold without engine and transaxle.
The tech specs of the KTM X-Bow were released but it carried a notice that the engines and transaxle specified in the document are the suggested drivetrain for North American consumers.
No pricing details were given though. As soon as the KTM X-Bow is fully functional, it will be able to accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 3.9 seconds.
This performance is attributed to the basic version's light weight (of about 790 kg / 1,742 lbs) and the 240 hp Audi 2.0 TFSI engine. [via LeftLaneNews]
