KTM’s 600HP X-BOW GTX Is An Audi-Powered Ultralight Small-Scale Supercar

In 2008, KTM introduced the world to its first-ever four-wheeled offering with its radical X-Bow model. In the years that followed, the Ready To Race Brand has steadily rolled out a growing number of increasingly-impressive model variants, though the Austrian outfit has now pulled the cover off the latest — and most potent — iteration of the Crossbow with the new X-Bow GTX.

Like previous versions of the street-legal go-kart, the menacing new GT2 racer was constructed around a Dallara Automobile-designed carbon monocoque chassis, penned by KISKA — the legendary designers behind KTM (and Husqvarna’s) motorcycle designs — and features a heavily-massaged Audi-sourced TFSi turbocharged 2.5L inline-five that now puts down a staggering 600hp — a far-cry from the outgoing model’s 395hp output. The GTX-spec also boasts a closed cockpit setup, like that of the existing X-Bow GT4, albeit with a markedly sleeker, and more aerodynamic design. And though KTM has yet to cite a top speed figure, the new model’s approximately 2,220lb weight suggests the GTX will likely be the fastest X-Bow to ever leave the factory in Graz.
