REVOLUTIONARY. PURISTIC. RADICAL.
The production KTM X-BOW is KTM’s interpretation of a super sports car for the 21st century. "We took Colin Chapman's idea of a spartan, lightweight sports car reduced to the bare essentials and transferred it into the new millennium – with as many technological innovations as possible", says KTM CEO Stefan Pierer, of the first four-wheeled model in KTM’s history
The design concept. Focused on only including elements that directly add to the performance and function of the vehicle. Trim away and leave off everything else. Assemble the best suppliers of the necessary components and use the strongest, lightest and most advanced materials available. However, no other car epitomizes the term “super sports car” as thoroughly and uncompromisingly as the KTM X-BOW.
With the KTM X-BOW GT, KISKA has designed a vehicle whose exceptional characteristics can now also be experienced without a helmet. The elegant, frameless windscreen construction, which wraps protectively around the driver and passenger in the same way as a helmet visor, allows the occupants to forego their own headgear. At the same time, however, it does nothing to impair the pure driving experience or the radical design of the revolutionary KTM X-BOW.
NEW PROJECTS - THE KTM X-BOW GTX & GT2
Performance and purism, united in a unique, extreme design, and armed for adventures on the most legendary race tracks in the world. The KTM X-BOW GTX & GT2 will set new benchmarks for lightweight racing cars, keeping the focus on the essentials: further weight reduction, increased engine performance, enhanced aerodynamics, refined handling. Furthermore, it will contain new technical features and decisive enlargement of usability. The KTM X-BOW GTX & GT2 also set standards in matters of safety. It is the first racing car to combine a homologated monocoque with a homologated GT roll cage and a fully carbon crafted racing seat. The models remain absolutely faithful to the DNA of the original KTM X-BOW.
PURE RACE BRED TECHNOLOGY
The carbon monocoque, which is unique for sports cars, was derived directly from a Dallara Formula 3 chassis. The extremely high shoulders of the monocoque protect much more effectively than any other technical solution in the event of a side impact. The front crash box, connected to the monocoque, meets the Formula 3 and sports car standards. The carbon monocoque itself is a four-layer construction that is double-walled from the driver's torso on. Like the monocoque itself, the roll hoops come directly from Formula racing and, in the worst case, are able to carry 2.5 times the vehicle weight.
