Audi-powered KTM X-BOW GT4 teased

Reiter Engineering has released a teaser image with their upcoming KTM X-BOW GT4. An evolution of the familiar model, the GT4 version is scheduled to come out next year and it will feature a “completely redesigned exterior” described as being the “state-of-the-art.” While that doesn’t say much, from the attached official sketch we notice a much wider and aggressive body with an enclosed cockpit, huge rear wing and several carbon fiber body parts.

Motivation will be provided by the same Audi-sourced 2.0 TFSI gasoline engine but it will be extensively reworked by the engineers of Reiter Engineering who promise to extract no less than 320 bhp (238 kW) channeled to the wheels through a 6-speed sequential gearbox developed by Holinger and equipped with paddle shifting.

Once completed, the KTM X-BOW GT4 will have to go up against other worthy racers such as the Ford Mustang Boss 302, Aston Martin GT4 and the Porsche Cayman S, among others. Additional details are not available at this point but Reiter Engineering owner, Hans Reiter, says the new track car is going to be “exceptionally good value for money.”

Chances are we will be able to see the KTM X-BOW GT4 in the metal in March 2015 at the Geneva Motor Show.
