To compete in next year’s Pirelli World Challenge (GT-S class) and SRO GT4 championships, the KTM X-Bow GT4 boasts with a completely redesigned face, as well as a fully enclosed cabin for better aero.
A statement from Reiter reads that the GT4’s design was inspired by the Lamborghini CountachThe company added: “Since the new car is based on the KTM X-Bow, the customer is going to get a racing car that has now been tested on the world’s racing circuits for six years. Our next major milestone will be the SRO Balance of Performance test in the spring.” Is there any other detail worth mentioning about this thing?
Actually, there is. Firstly, that gutsy turbocharged mill is mated to a quick-shifting Holinger six-speed sequential transmission with paddle shifters. The main mechanical kit, coupled to a motorsport-spec suspension, a nice set of sticky rubber, as well as that ginormous wing should be enough for the KTM X-Bow GT4 to offer the new kid on the block some cred in the face of the GT4-spec Porsche 911.
Regarding how much this extreme contraption will cost, prepare to hear some jaws drop. We don’t know how to soften the blow, so here’s Johnny - it’s expected to cost at least €100,000 (£79,550 / $124,380) and upwards to €150,000 (£119,320 / $186,570) if you take into account all the spare bits and bobs required for to race for an entire season. It’s a little bit on the expensive side of racing, innit?
