KTM X-Bow GT Turbocharged to 435HP by Wimmer

Tuning / Comments

For customers who want considerably more than insane performance.

The KTM X-Bow was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show way back in March, so an aftermarket program for the track car has been a long time coming. 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 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. It also comes with a windshield, so wearing a helmet is now optional. However, with Wimmer's modifications the added protection should be seriously considered.

Thanks to the German tuner, the X-Bow GT's output has been boosted to 435 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, resulting in a 0-62 mph time slashed from 4.2 to 3.3 seconds. That was achieved by adding a custom turbocharger, forged pistons, sports exhaust, new pumps and a remapped ECU. Wimmer also trimmed the cabin in leather, added more comfortable seats with orange seams and stitching, and fitted the X-Bow GT with a new set of racing rims.
