KTM X-Bow gets a 5 cylinder turbo


Audi TT-RS might be considered by many to be the most desirable car in the Audi fleet at the moment. With 360 horsepower generated by a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine, 343 pound-feet of torque in stock configuration and only 3,300 pounds to move on the road, the coupe is the best TT ever made.

KTM, as we all know, has just revealed in Geneva its unconventional X-Bow vehicle. The rumors are that the company is thinking of equipping the future X-Bow with the turbo 2.5 from the Audi TT-RS which is expected to produce up to 480 horsepower. Some prototypes are already tested and the engine could run on racing tracks starting the following year. This being the situation, very soon we might get the chance to see a legal version of the X-Bow running on the streets.
