    KTM stops X-Bow production

    until 2010 at least :

    http://derstandard.at/fs/1250690984132/Produktionsstopp-KTM-muss-mit-dem-X-Bow-in-die-Garage (sorry if the article is in german)

    Basically it says that the X-Bow hasn't sold as well as they had expected.

    The absurd pricetag might have something to do with that

    And it isn't even that good as a track car.  All my reading of it indicates that it is too soft as a track car especially when you have cars like Radical and Atom out there.

    Absolutely! Pricing was totally insane. A friend of mine considered a X-Bow and asked if I would be interested in something like carsharing, but I would rather buy a Caterham than this KTM. Smiley

     Yeah, Caterham is a better road car and better track car for less money (and has lower running costs).  You and your friend could each buy a Caterham and have fun on the track together at the same timeSmiley
