We’ve all seen those three-wheeled motorcycles with a back end that looks like a camaro or corvette. Well, an Austrian company has gone one step further, building a complete car. What’s so unusual about making a car, you ask? Well, up until now, KTM has only made motorcycles, and their first attempt at a car, called the X-Bow, looks like it was built from motorcycle parts. Weighing in at a mere 700kg (1,540lbs.) with 220 or 300PS (Pferdest ¤rken, German for Horsepower), the KTM X-Bow is a real land-rocket. It features a carbon monocoque with no doors or roof, and will debut at the Geneva motor show in March 2007.
The X-Bow is set to ship at the end of 2007 for $52,000.
