This is our first good look at KTM’s incoming new X-Bow GT2 road car, unsurprisingly called the KTM X-Bow GT2. And yes, KTM did send out some official “spy shots” of this car some weeks ago but just 3 half blurry shots. And seeing the prototype playing in the snow on a remote ice track up in Northern Scandinavia is not just more fun but is also giving us a chance to see the car better.
The KTM X-Bow GT2 is of course named after the racing version GT2 which made its motorsport debut last year. KTM has released some information together with those own spy photos. The road going version will also run the Audi five-cylinder engine known from the RS 3. In the racing version of the GT2, it delivers 600 horsepower, but as for now we don’t know how much power the road going version will have. Will the road going car offer the same performance from that rear-mounted five-pot?
Anyway the power will go to the rear wheels via a seven speed direct shift gearbox and with that low weight the car is expected to have this sounds like a recipe for great fun. The racing GT2 weights about 1000 kg and the road going version will most likely add a few kilograms to that depending on some safety parts needed in order to make it street legal.
Since testing has just started the debut could come at the end of this year or in 2023 at latest.
