  • Famed for its two-wheelers, KTM has now built a track car for the 21st century. You’d struggle to describe the Austrian two-seater as pretty, but the partially exposed carbon fibre chassis helps make it both strong and light. There’s no screen, roof or doors, so you’ll need a helmet and waterproof clothing if you go for a drive. However, the ride is surprisingly supple, while wind buffeting is a problem only at high speeds.

    The X-Bow (say ‘crossbow’) is quite unlike any other small sports car because it is built around a carbonfibre tub. It’s a beautifully finished tub too, the ordered weave on show beneath a clear matt lacquer, while its curves and angles have been designed and developed by renowned race chassis experts Dallara.
