Specializing in chip tuning and engine modifications, Wimmer RST is set on giving you an amped-up adrenaline rush with their latest project. Although they’re already plenty of fun to drive without any upgrades, the GT and R versions of the KTM X-Bow have been upgraded to become adult-size go-kart rocket ships.
Wimmer RST has improved the vehicle’s 2.0-liter TFSI engine, ramping it up to 478 horsepower with 384 lb-ft of torque. That’s an extra 182 horsepower and 74 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to shoot from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.97 seconds. And, you can blast to 124 mph in just under 10 seconds. The KTM X-Bow vehicles are also equipped with three driving modes and plenty of carbon fiber for lightweight durability. To get the speeding bullet Superman experience, the KTM X-Bow R, which doesn’t have a windscreen, will do the trick quite well.
