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.
