KTM Shows X-Bow GT With Windows, Doors Ahead Of Geneva Motor Show

Follow Nelson

The KTM X-Bow is an unflinchingly stripped-down track car that coincidentally happens to be street legal. The latest iteration of the X-Bow, the GT, makes that street aspect of its use a bit more tolerable--but only a bit.

Rumors of just such a car have been circulating for over a year now, but today, we get confirmation. Still eschewing a roof of any sort, the KTM X-Bow GT adds windows and (very small) doors to the open-top's package, reducing the need to rely on a helmet for jaunts around town. That'll help keep you from drawing the "are you a maniac" looks, replacing them instead with open-mouthed gapes at your sheer awesomeness.

Or at least that's the likely intent.

No solid details on the X-Bow GT have been released just yet--only a picture and a confirmation of its scheduled debut in Geneva next week--but we expect the windows and doors will be removable for track use, as that is still any X-Bow's primary mission in life.

For those keeping track, this isn't the first X-Bow with a roof, however: Italian company Montenergy has been selling a full hardtop kit for the car for nearly two years.

Look for the full details on the X-Bow GT live from the show next week.
