MTM-Tuned KTM X-Bow R Runs Down Criminals in Monaco

Monaco’s supercar hooners better beware the cop’s fast and furious X-Bow R.

There are a couple of striking things about this particular KTM X-Bow 'R' model. First off, it has been tuned by aftermarket specialist MTM and so has potentially been upgraded to produce 400hp.

And the other interesting fact about the lightweight two-seater is that it's used by the gendarmerie in Monaco to chase down cars; note the flashing red light atop the car. From the amount of supercars we've seen prowling the streets of Monte Carlo of late we can see the need for the police to have a car capable of 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds in their fleet. The following onboard footage gives you an idea of just how capable the 2.0-liter turbocharged Audi engine is at rocketing the 800kg car around Monaco ensuring supercars are kept on their toes.
