KTM X-Bow GT4 Teaser 01

A month ago, Reiter Engineering and KTM Sportcar were rumoured to be working on a new GT4 race car project based on the KTM X-Bow. They are true after all, as KTM has released further details regarding the race car, which is set to enter both the SRO GT4 European racing series and the GT-S class in the Pirelli World Challenge.

KTM has yet to show us the real thing but this rendering from KISKA points to the final design of the GT4 racer. Compared to the X-Bow, the new race car appears to be more athletic with its radically sculpted sheet metal, deep air intakes and louvres as well as the protruding rear wing.

According to KTM, the yet-to-be-named race car gets 320 hp from a 2.0-litre TFSI engine and a sequential six-speed gearbox with paddle shift from Hollinger. The car itself is equipped with a racing ABS system. In terms of weight, Hans Reiter, proprietor of Reiter Engineering says, “When it comes to the weight we are orienting ourselves on the current SRO GT4 practice.”

“Ultimately however we have to wait to see how much balance weight and horsepower the SRO and the Pirelli World Challenge assigns us as part of the ‘Balance of Performance’,” he explains further.

In terms of price, the GT4 racer is said to be “in the range of the SRO rules for GT4.” Reports suggest the price tag could reach somewhere between £80,000 to £120,000.
