KTM are competing on almost every continent with two wheels but they are also pretty busy with their four-wheel program. Marketing and Motorsport Manager and driver Laura Kraihamer tells us about throttling the X-BOW Models and how technology is making racers faster and younger…
Tag: KTM X-BOW
A 29-year-old Austrian is proving that KTM can ripple four sets of rubber compared to two, and with the fresh KTM X-BOW GTX now rolling from pitboxes, the car racing world had better watch out for more fast orange.
There are 16,000 kilometers between Graz and Sydney, between the home of the KTM X-BOW manufacturer and the branch of the Australian import company “Simply Sports Cars” that has been officially importing the road-legal variety of the Austrian supercar since the beginning of 2017. At the same time, the Australian racing team “M-Motorsport” nearly managed to win the prestigious and legendary Bathurst 12 hour – and naturally in a KTM X-BOW GT4.
For almost 10 years now, the KTM X-BOW, in its various versions, has truly proven its worth as an exceptional piece of (motor)sports kit for a wide range of requirements. However, the super sports car from Austria has now also become a hit among “sim racers” from around the world and is available in virtually all motor racing simulations!
Since 2008, the KTM X-BOW super sports car has been manufactured at a small but highly-advanced production facility in Graz, Austria. A key reason for this choice of location is the “Auto Cluster Styria” that has developed in and around the Styrian state capital. International companies such as Magna and AVL are headquartered here, and countless other suppliers have played their part in establishing Styria’s high-tech hub. “High-tech” also happens to be the perfect phrase to describe KTM Sportcar GmbH.
The KTM X-BOW GT4 has already won countless victories and titles since its market launch in 2015; but in the unforgiving world of motorsport, staying still is the same as going backwards. That’s why the “True Racing” team tests its new developments under race conditions.
A car from Mattighofen? A conservative family car, or READY TO RACE on four wheels? It seemed inconceivable for fifty years, but became a reality exactly ten years ago.
The information that REITER ENGINEERING and KTM will return to international motor racing with a brand new X-BOW model in the near future, attracted major attention not only by KTM fans. For the KTM BLOG, REITER ENGINEERING boss Hans Reiter responds to the most frequently asked questions.
