Although perhaps not recognizable most by its name, KTM company created an ideal starting point for creating sports cars by producing its X-Bow model.
A specialist for creating racing chassis, the Dallara brand, which was in charge of the development of the new model, also has a great deal in this success, but it is worth mentioning Reiter Engineering, who made his technical contribution to the overall collaboration on this X-Bow supercar project.
Lamborghini, a longtime motorsport partner, joined KTM three years ago to convert their first X-Bow project into a GT4 race car. After this joint project was made by several tens of units, the response from other manufacturers in the category came, so that the consortium of these companies had to react very quickly.
Their response is a thoroughly modified version of KTM X-Bow GT4 for this season and completely redesigned to reduce the costs of private teams that are interested in it. “In spite of the fact that we already have a GT4 car that offers all the best value for money, we also want to reduce the costs of teams and drivers for the future in the way we add them,” said Reiter Engineering’s boss Hans Reiter.
A far more robust transmission from Holinger promises to perfectly manage a large number of torques, while it can travel over 100,000 kilometers in a piece without any problems, and twice as much when paired with an additional modified suspension. The engine control unit, electrical system, cables, control panel, slip control also get far more durable versions, which is essential for all races in the long run.
Every team that wants such a car in, for example, Pirelli World Challenge GT4 European Series competition or VLN Endurance Championship – Nurburgring, Reiter’s coalition will make it poorer for €152,360 ($181,200), but several of the first series have already been sold or advanced by the following February.
