The KTM X-Bow has arrived in North America

After years of motorsport success and admiration by the motoring press in Europe, the KTM X-Bow is finally available in North America. Available in; Street, Clubsport, Superlight and GT4 trim levels, the X-Bow is ready to take your driving experience to the next level, no matter what the venue.

Featuring a durable and robust Audi-sourced direct-injection 2.0 Liter, turbocharged 4 cylinder; the X-Bow is capable of 0-60 sprints in less than 4 seconds and over 30 MPG. Not impressed? Check that dental work because the X-Bow has the ability to stop from 60 MPH in only 99 feet thanks to the standard Brembo braking system.

The X-Bow features one of the worlds most advanced chassis. Constructed from carbon fiber, the monocoque configuration utilizes the same technology as a Formula 1 car to protect the occupants. This not only provides safety but also gives the X-Bow it’s legendary handling characteristics, pulling 1.25G on the skid pad.

British Racing Group is proud to be the North American dealer for the X-Bow. We are extending our wealth of knowledge and experience in sports car and motorsport sales and support to KTM with full sales, service, track prep and parts sales for our clients.

That was a temporary stop to reduce inventories. This is no different than any other manufacturer it was just more highly covered because of the high profile nature of the X-Bow. Production is up and running and an ordered car will take about 4-8 weeks for delivery to the US.

We are having all the cars shipped via air to ensure their safety and expedite deliveries.

The X-Bow is being sold without representation as to the buyer's ability to register it for road use. That said, they are being imported as a rolling chassis and therefore it avails the buyer of the opportunity to license the vehicle in the same manner one would an Atom, Rossion, Noble, Caterham, etc. If licensure for road use is your intent, I would suggest you research your articular states requirements for "specialty construction vehicles".

The car is set up for the Audi 2.0 Turbo four cylinder which does meet federal requirements.

Each car is being built to the specification of the buyer. In fact, cars can be built and shipped from Austria in as little as 2 weeks but once the cars arrive here, they will need to have drivetrains installed.

Because each car is tailored to the specifications of the buyer, prices can vary. But for reference, a standard Street model after drivetrain installation will be around $95k. Again, this is a guide and I would encourage any perspective buyers to contact us to obtain a tailored proposal.

This is GREAT news!

I have always considered the KTM to be the "real enthusiast's choice" compared to an Ariel Atom which is the "mass' choice"...

Sort of like the Koenigsegg compared to the Bugatti

I'm SO excited that you were able to get this sorted out... I know how much of a pain it must have been to get past all the red tape!
