KTM announced the Stratosferica

We've all heard about the X-Bow. Well now, its creator, the KTM, announced a special edition called the Stratosferica, an open-top track car. The carmaker had as inspiration the Lancia Stratos that is a well known rally car.
The Startosferica has as base the X-Bow that received a closed cockpit and a two-wheel drive system. The exterior of the model is very unique without the A-pillars and the KTM specialists hope to bring back all the emotions the original Stratos brought. The good handling was offered by the carbon fiber chassis.
We don't have any further details on the Stratosferica so far as the carmaker didn't reveal anything.
The model features the same 2.0-liter turbocharged engine able to deliver 240 horsepower, the same as the X-Bow. Actually the engine was taken of an Audi TT.
We'll keep you in touch with more information as soon as they're available.
