Based on the KTM X-BOW R, Austrian manufacturer KTM has created a version of their vehicle with an elegant, frameless, windscreen construction that wraps protectively around the driver and passenger in the same way as a helmet visor would.
Crucially it does not impair the pure driving experience or the radical design of the revolutionary KTM X-BOW.
The latest KTM design language gives the X-BOW GT a more muscular and powerful look. The extra elements blend seamlessly into each other, thereby creating a “helmet visor effect”. The frameless upper edge ensures a flowing transition between “outside” and “inside”: It extends an imaginary line up from the rear giving the whole vehicle a more dynamic appearance. It’s not all about looks though, the aerodynamics have been improved in order to generate less drag and even more downforce, it’s in their racing genes.
– Completely revamped center console
– New switch arrangement for windscreen wiper, screen wash/wipe system, interior ventilation/heating.
– New windscreen heater that is a technologically sophisticated solution integrated into the windscreen, which, in contrast to customary standard solutions, are barely visible even in poor light conditions.
– Revamped 2.0-litre TFSI engine from Audi with 300 horsepower at 6,400 rpm & maximum torque of 420 Nm at just 3,200 rpm in a lightweight chassis that tips the scales under 900 kg.
– Manual 6-speed gearbox from Audi with short-shift.
– Limited slip differential that has been completely retuned for the GT.
– Braking performance from 100 km/h to 0 in less than 40 meters
– Torque support that is mounted directly on the carbon monocoque.
– Three-piece, completely flat, racing underbody derived from formula racing vehicles. Up to 100 kg of downforce generated at 200 km/h thanks to the front splitter, underbody and rear diffuser.
– Depending on the tyres, up to 2.0 g of lateral acceleration is possible.
– On the front axle, the pushrod chassis – derived directly from the world of formula racing – features compression damping with high and low-speed settings as well as adjustable rebound damping.
– All these setting options are also available on the rear axle, although here the spring/damper unit is directly attached to the wheel mounting.
– Brembo brake system employs a four-piston, fixed-calliper brake on the front axle, with an internally ventilated, slotted disc measuring 305 mm in diameter; the rear unit is a two-piston, fixed-calliper brake with a diameter of 262 mm.
