While some automakers were trying to amaze visitors of the Geneva Auto Show with flashy paint jobs, KTM was trying a different approach: its latest model, the X-BOW Black Edition, is completely blacked-out.

The KTM X-Bow GT Black Edition is made for the track: it features an open cockpit, and most of its mechanical components are placed within sight. Its engine is a 2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder developing 320 horsepower, enabling the little roadster to go from 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds and hit more than 230 km/h. It’s also important to note that the X-BOW isn’t just a track-day toy; it can be insured and driven on the road like any other car.

The Black Edition gets a black interior with matching stitching, the infotainement system gets a backup camera and the centre console will feature a plaque noting the exclusivity of this variant.

Only five units of the KTM X-BOW Black Edition will be built. Each buyer will also get the opportunity of touring KTM’s factories in Austria.
