  • Here is another shot of the KTM X-Bow (Crossbow), this time facing the other way outside the front entrance of Blenheim Palace.

    Launched in 2008 by Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM, the car has proved more successful that originally anticipated, with production being increased from 500 to 1000 units a year.

    If you've ever watched the annual Race of Champions event then you will have seen this car in action, being driven by the likes of Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel, Sebastien Loeb and Tom Kristensen.

    The car is constructed with a full carbon composite monocoque that weighs in at 80kg, and the aerodynamics of the design allow the car to generate 100kg of downforce and 2G of lateral acceleration.

    KTM also run a Clubsport race series for X-Bow owners called the X-Bow Battle. You can see a brief video from the 2014 season on YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=kojof72Ul7s.
