The KTM New X-BOW GT-XR is the most like a real race car that you can get in a car that you can drive on the street. The super sportscar is the perfect lightweight, high-performance car for true individuals who want to experience untamed dynamics, radical design, and pure enthusiasm in their everyday lives. This is based on the KTM X-BOW GT2, which has won races and championships all over the world, making it clear what its strengths are. When making the KTM X-BOW GT-XR, the focus was on what was most important, but unique features like the electric jet fighter canopy were not left out. Here, great performance and expert engineering come together so that every super sportscar’s part, fibre, and detail is “READY TO RACE.”
You’ve seen orange-coloured KTM motorcycles before. The Austrian company makes motorcycles with either two or one cylinder. The Duke is a street fighter, the RC is a track machine, and the Adventure is an all-terrain vehicle. Even in India, people like the company. But what if I told you they also make supercars, and the most recent ones cost Rs. 2.26 crore? Let’s take a look at this great car from the future.
KTM New X-BOW GT-XR: Concept
This isn’t the first time KTM has made a car. The X-Bow line has been famous for almost a decade. The engine for the first generation of KTM X-Bows came from Audi. It had an engine and powertrains mounted on a carbon fibre monocoque chassis and spaceframes. The first generation was a beautiful car with an open roof 2008.
KTM New X-BOW GT-XR: Features
The KTM X-BOW GT-XR is a unique car because it has a double-seater carbon fibre monocoque chassis based on Formula 3. It also has a body made of carbon fibre. The Audi-made 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder engine that gives this supercar 500 horsepower and 581 Newton meters of torque is placed in front of the rear axle. It means that 44.56 per cent of the car’s weight is in the back (front to back). But it has rear-wheel drive and a limited-slip differential. So, it makes sense that the weight is more in the back.
The car also has a cooling system, which is taken care of by a large radiator on the left side. A turbo intercooler is on the right side. To make this car legal to drive on the road, the company had to add air conditioning, whose parts are mounted on the engine and then sent to the front through vents from an Audi A3. A small 160-litre trunk and a 95-litre gas tank. There are also windows. They don’t roll down, though. They instead open like doors with the help of hydraulics. Hey, GT4 and GT2 didn’t even have windows or air conditioning.
KTM New X-BOW GT-XR: Price and Specs
The door opens like the door on Batman’s plane, a batwing. It is made of a single piece and moves with the help of hydraulics. The back cover over the engine opens in the opposite direction. There are also a lot of aerodynamic parts on the KTM X-Bow GT-XR, such as a smaller front end than the GT4 and a spoiler. In the Mclaren Senna, it hangs from the top, but this one is fixed from the bottom.
The design is beautiful from every angle and is an authentic piece of art. The supercar was made by the same company, KISKA, that made the KTM bikes. The car’s taillights are exciting and attractive because each came from a Husqvarna motorcycle.
KTM has left a lot of carbon fibre out in the open to show how important it is and to save weight. Regarding importance, the KTM X-Bow GT-XR only weighs 1,130 kg because it is made of carbon fibre and has aluminium on the front and back. KTM could also use this carbon fibre monocoque to make a roadster or spyder (a convertible or open-top car) with an even higher price tag.
KTM makes 100 models, and each one will cost $284,700. (approximately Rs. 2.26 crore without taxes).
KTM New X-BOW GT-XR: Rivals
The KTM X-Bow GT-XR will race against supercars like the Porsche, Lamborghini, and Ferrari.
