    2013 KTM X-box GT to get Audi 2.5 TFSI inline-5 cylinder option with 360 horsepower making for a track day rocket

    The KTM X-Bow only weighs 1700 pounds and with 240 horsepower from a 2.0 liter turbocharged VW Group four-cylinder it definitely offers a nice power to weight. KTM decided to up the ante with the 2013 X-Bow GT revealed in Geneva with 285 horsepower from the 2.0 liter motor but will also give buyers the option of the TT-RS 2.5 TFSI powerplant with 360 horsepower and 343 pound-feet of torque. KTM is also testing a dual clutch transmission with this motor (the X-Bow is currently manual only).

    Um, ok, who else wants one? If the 360 horsepower isn't enough the 2.5 TFSI motor responds very well to mods and APR already has the motor over 500 wheel horsepower.

    Is a roughly 1800 pound curb weight with 360 horsepower worth $94,120? And will the Austrian manufacturer export this vehicle to the USA? Two good questions but there is no doubt one of the greatest track day cars out there just got taken to a whole new level of awesome.

    Pictures below.

    Considering how much cheaper the atom is... I'd have to lean toward it for that fact alone.
