There's a New KTM X-Bow Racer on the Way and it's Going to be Insane

Time for some GT4 racing.

KTM is all about devotion to the track driving experience (it also builds awesome motorcycles). Hence its X-Bow, that absolutely wonderful ultralight road and track car. With its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder Audi-sourced engine, it supposedly has a 0-62 time of just 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 135 mph. But now KTM has announced a new project. Joining forces with Reiter Engineering, KTM will soon build a new X-Bow GT4 racecar "for use in motorsport."

It’ll be sold to customers in Europe as well as the US and Asia. The two companies promise to build a car that’s a "revolutionary new vehicle concept into international customer motorsport." We’re told the X-Bow GT4 (or whatever its final name is) will be eligible to compete in many GT4-spec series such as the British GT and the GT4 European Series where it’ll go up against other GT-4-prepped Lotus Evoras, Aston Martin Vantage V8s, and Porsche 911s. There’s no official release date just yet, but word has it the new X-Bow will be ready for the 2015 season.
