Tuner ABT powering up KTM X-Bow

KTM (Austrian motorbike manufacturer) and ABT Sportsline (German tuners) are working together now improving the already amazing X-Bow (crossbow pronounced) by becoming a lightweight car retailer — including extra performance upgrades. So, this X-BOW is carbon fiber clad, open air roadster, lightweight powered by a 2.0 liter TFSI Volkswagen engine making 240 HP, capable of accelerating that 790 Kg car from 0-60 MPH (0-100 Km/h) - 3.9 seconds.

An upgraded variant from ABT Sportsline's projected for generating 300 HP from the Volkswagen 4 cylinder giving X-BOW a good, more favorable strength to weight ratio. Meaning every horsepower will now have to move just 5.8 pounds X-BOW.

The KTM X-BOW is blending race auto performance having a motorcycle as driving experience; now ABT got their hands on some units stay off that Autobahn for the embarrassment fear.
