Austrian motorcycle and sports car manufacturer KTM unveils its 2018 edition of the only car they produce with the X-Bow, pronounced as “cross-bow.”
Constructed in conjunction with German racing team Reiter Engineering, the track car has gained a GT4-specification that helps it perform like a true racer, while also driving down its pricing. Having undergone a significant overhaul, updates include a more powerful Holinger transmission, while the mileage of the chassis components pushes the running costs down to about $5 USD per km.
Draped in stealthy black, the vehicle weighs in at just 2,200 pounds, as an Audi-sourced 2.0 liter engine has been added and produces 360 horsepower. Other enhancements include a new Motec M142 engine control, user-friendly control panel in the cockpit to further aid the driver, an LMP headrest, inboard suspension, and many others.
Already available to order, the 2018 KTM X-Bow GT4 has a starting price of $181,200 USD and a total of 15 vehicles are on the production plan for Spring 2018.
