Ace VW tuners, Darkside Developments of Grimethorpe, South Yorkshire run by Scott and Ryan Parkin, has been appointed as official UK dealers for the marvellous KTM X-BOW. Sure, it’s not a kit but as I’ve continually said over the nigh-on 20-years of doing this website if a car is interesting and specialist (oh, and I like it!) then it’ll always be welcome within these pages! So it is with the X-Bow.

These days three versions of the car are available – R, GT and RR. Even the ‘standard’ R variant features more carbon-fibre than you can chuck a stick at from the Dallara developed monocoque to, well, most of the car actually! The GT and RR add more of it and feature a bit more power.
