KTM Just Made A Track Car That's Made Entirely Out Of Carbon Fiber

/ Comments

It's being called The Black Edition.

Black isn't a color that works on all cars, but when done properly, a blacked-out vehicle looks absolutely menacing. The KTM X-Bow is a hardcore vehicle that can't look any more menacing, but that hasn't stopped the automaker from trying with a Black Edition. The X-Bow is already an extremely capable and precise road-legal track weapon, but the latest edition takes it to another level. According to KTM, the X-Bow Black Edition sets new standards for "fully carbon-fiber vehicles" and there's a good reason as to why.

Every inch of this X-Bow's body features carbon fiber. In addition to the track-car's monocoque cell, all of the car's components are made out of carbon fiber, which include the engine covers, underfloor and wheel arches. In addition to featuring carbon fiber, the parts are also aerodynamically tuned to ensure that the X-Bow has an astonishing amount of downforce. Based on the KTM X-Bow GT, the Black Edition also features more additions that set it apart from the regular model. The Black Edition features a sticker kit, as well as 18 and 19-inch BBS rims that are, of course, finished in black.

On the inside, there are hand-stitched comfort seats with color coordinated stitching and logos stamped into the headrests. There are all-aluminum pedals and inserts, along with a suede leather steering wheel. Power comes from an Audi-sourced 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that is upgraded to 316 hp, while the transmission gets a quick shifter for lighting fast gear changes. KTM only plans to make five models with each one coming in at $107,435. That's a lot of money for a blacked-out track car.
