KTM changed the number of wheels on the vehicles they make by creating the X-Bow but they somehow managed to keep the fun associated within the product.
That said though, apart from the pitiful luggage space, if there was something considerably missing from the KTM X-Bow it was the body shape and image of a proper car.
This is where Italian coachbuilder Montenergy comes in and produces this new conversion kit for the X-Bow that makes it look like one of the finest cars around.
That’ll be the Lancia Stratos and teaming the sexy looking body with the high performance and impressively abled track focused KTM X-Bow is quite the idea.
A new name that’s just as impressive came along with the Italian body and it is the Stratosferica.
While making a “new” conversion look like an older car isn’t the finest of ideas, I’d say we should look easy on the coachbuilder’s indiscretion with the styling choice since the Austrian built toy is its own car.
Underneath, there’s no serious change and, frankly, there’s no real reason for one to interfere. The Audi sourced 2.0 liter turbocharged four pot is still there only it develops 310 horsepower and they’re all aimed at the rear wheels.
The pricing Montenergy stamps onto the conversion that gets you a KTM Stratosferica is just 12.000 euros or the equivalent of 17.300 U.S. dollars.
