KTM X-Bow GT Skids into Geneva

/ Comments

Austrian track car gets windows and a soft top for the first time, making it just a bit more usable on days when the sun isn't shining.

Last week we brought you the first details and photos of the new X-Bow GT, a new version of KTM's four-wheeled track car that has gotten a nod – however slight – towards practicality. Now the Austrian motorbike company has revealed the full monty at the Geneva Motor Show. Based on the top-spec X-Bow R, the GT model packs a 2.0-liter turbo four with intercooler and direct injection to churn out 285 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.

The power reaches the rear wheels through a six-speed transmission, sending the glassed-in X-Bow to 62 in 4.2-second and on to a 144 mph top speed. What sets the GT model apart from the existing version, however, are the windshield, side windows, doors and even a soft top to fit between them in case of inclement weather. There's also a "luggage system" that provides about 50 liters of storage space. All this and more can be yours for the low, low price of 72,500 euros.
