Top Gear "2008 Sports Car of the Year"
The KTM X-BOW ("crossbow") is the first car produced by the Austrian KTM Power Sports AG, usually known for producing motorcycles. It's a 240hp racing car that was first presented on March 8th 2007 at the International Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. It has won the "2008 Sports Car of the Year" award by the well-known British BBC tv series "Top Gear".
There are four different models with the basic "street" model starting at a market price of 49,980 eur up to the "GT4" racing model at 82,900 eur.
For manufacturing the car KTM built a new production plant in Graz. In June 2008 the plant went live and mass-production of 1,000 cars per year started.
Across the street from the cache location you can have a look at different X-BOW models. And maybe you even manage to test-drive one, who knows? I constantly see people driving these around there..
Ready to Race
Update May 2016: In August 2015 one of the buildings that used to home KTM on one side of the street became a Tesla service station. Near the cache location there are several Tesla superchargers so you might also be able to see some of these fine vehicles.

Unfortunately due to restrictions imposed by geocaching.com I'm not allowed to show the logo of the manufacturer or the product and may not place a link to the official X-BOW website here. Luckily that one is really really well hidden and will never be found when performing a quick search..
