We've featured the KTM X-Bow before at Trend Hunter, but never before in snow. Most track-tuned roadsters wouldn't fare well in inclement weather, but this KTM X-Bow appears to do just fine.

Although it is essentially street-legal throughout much of Europe, the carbon-fiber KTM X-Bow isn't exactly the ideal automobile for winter driving. Despite its $130,000 price tag, the car isn't equipped with a heater, a windshield, traction control, or ABS brakes.

Implications - The KTM X-Bow is a phenomenal piece of auto tech that I would certainly like to own. However the hefty price tag will mean that will have to admire it from afar. It is a great all-weather racecar. Stats for All-Weather Racecars Trending: Older & Chilly
