Not many of us will be familiar with the brand KTM. Rightfully so, because this Austria based manufacturer is famous for making some brilliant racing motorcycles and not much have been done by them in the four-wheeler segment apart from a wacky looking KTM X-Bow. And now KTM has joined hands with Reiter Engineering and teased an image and details about the upcoming X-Bow GT4.
KTM X-Bow GT4 is manufactured to compete in SRO GT4 and Pirelli World Challenge GT-S classes and will be introduced next year. The exteriors of the car will feature a "completely redesigned exterior" that is "state-of-the-art", as mentioned by the Austrian manufacturer. The description is a little vague, but one can see a new front fascia, an enclosed cockpit, carbon fiber front splitter, new body panels and a prominent rear wing.
According to Reiter Engineering owner, Hans Reiter, "Since the new car is based on the KTM X-BOW, the customer is going to get a racing car that has now been tested on the world’s racing circuits for six years." He further says, "When you reflect on what the customer is being offered here in terms of the most modern racing technology, together with a very impressive safety concept, then you can really speak about it being exceptionally good value for money."
Not much of the technical specifications were revealed by the KTM, other than it has a 2.0 litre TFSI petrol engine that develops approximately 320 bhp. The engine will come mated with a six-speed sequential transmission with paddle shifters.
