KTM X-BOW GT presented at Geneva Motor Show

From 5th March to 17th March, during the International Geneva Motor Show 2013, everybody can see the last creation of KTM. This is X-BOW GT, a user- friendly version of the old model. This is already available and the price starts from 72,500 EUR.

The base model is a KTM X-BOW R the “Supersportscar of the 21st century”. It has a road-legal soft-top which can fast and easily be installed. The GT version is characterized by a luggage system that provides approximately 50 liters of storage space. A variety of colors and PowerParts components can be added upon request at an extra cost.

Among super performance cars the KTM X-BOW GT can win the prize of the coolest design. The X-Bow will be powered by a 2.0-liter gasoline engine with turbocharging, direct injection and an intercooler that can provide 285 HP (210 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque at 3,200 rpm. All these are sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox, that allows the X-BOW GT to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.2 seconds and a maximum speed of 144 mph (231 km/h).

The “space” car is illustrated by the following characteristics. It has a length of 3738 mm, it is 1915 mm wide and 1202 mm tall, having a 2430mm wheelbase and it weights 847 kg (1,867 lbs). It has two 17-inch front wheels with 205/40 tires and two 18-inch rear alloys shod in 255/35 tires. The KTM X-BOW GT has a fuel consumption of 8.3 liters / 100 km (28.3 mpg US / 34 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 189 g/km. Originally designed for racing, KTM cars are suitable for the ones that enjoy to be “fast and furious” in a sport racing car.
