has revealed a new road-legal version of its X-Bow GT2, a carbonfibre racer that competes in various GT-class racing series across the world. Aiming to convert its all-out racer to comply with road homologation rules, the Austrian firm is beginning a long development process before first examples hit the road in the next few years. Pricing is yet to be announced, but expect it to sit marginally higher than the £250,000 of the X-Bow GT2 track car.

The X-Bow GT2, not to be confused with the original road-going X-Bow, was launched in 2020 to compete in the new GT2 class; the model already holds a number of race wins and a championship title to its name. Powered byAudi’s turbocharged 2.5-litre five-cylinder, 600bhp and 531lb ft of torque is sent through a limited-slip differential to the rear wheels – tweaks to the injection valves, wastegate, intake and exhaust system courtesy of Lehmann Motorentechnik were behind the rise in power, but KTM claims costly reinforcement of components is not required.

Pricing is yet to be announced, but expect it to sit marginally higher than the £250,000 of the X-Bow GT2 track car. The design will likely closely mirror the GTX/GT2 with supercar-like features, retaining the carbon-fiber canopy lid. The X-Bow GT2, not to be confused with the original road-going X-Bow, was launched in 2020 to compete in the new GT2 class; the model already holds a number of race wins and a championship title to its name. Due to the extra equipment required for street-legal use, the new X-Bow is expected to weigh slightly more than the 1,048 kg (2,310 pounds) of the GT2 racer, however, it will still be quite lightweight.

> BAC and Viritech team up in development of hydrogen sports car powertrains Such figures are even more impressive when you consider its 1048kg dry weight, achieved through the use of a cabonfibre monocoque and CFRP bodywork. More specifically, the mill produces 523 hp (390 kW / 530 PS) in the GTX and up to 600 hp (447 kW / 608 PS) in the GT2 racer.

KTM says it will focus on safety for the road-going variant, including the same reinforced forward-opening ‘fighter jet’ canopy as the racer and a full crash testing programme. 2 It’s not yet confirmed how much the road car will share with the racer, but given the small amount of modification required to achieve such output and the tried and tested safety systems already in place, it’s likely KTM won’t change much. Like its predecessors, power will be transmitted to the rear wheels through a seven-speed sequential gearbox with the help of the limited-slip differential. The only element confirmed to have received the axe is the six-speed sequential transmission, swapped for a more conventional seven-speed direct shift unit. While spartan and performance-focused, the road-going variant of the X-Bow GTX/GT2 could get a softer setup for the adjustable suspension that features Sachs Racing Dampers, plus more creature comforts inside the cabin like different bucket seats and better sound-proofing materials. Further details will be announced as development gets underway. Since 2008, KTM has built more than 1,300 units of the.
