Low weight and high thrills - that's what KTM is promising from its first four-wheeler

This is the Austrian manufacturer's new X-Bow, caught testing on the track before its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

With a 220bhp 300Nm version of Audi's 2.0-litre TT turbo engine mated to either six-speed manual or S tronic boxes, the 700kg two-seater offers breathtaking speed. It hits

0-62mph in only 3.9 seconds, and KTM also has plans for an even faster 300bhp variant. A pilot production run of 100 will be built in Italy at the end of year; all have already been sold.
