Updated 2018 KTM X-BOW GT4 Unveiled

Reduced running costs, increase in mileage

The KTM X-BOW GT4 has undergone a significant overhaul for the coming season, the car’s fourth in competition.

The ‘Evo’ focuses on an increase in mileage and a decrease in running costs.

Updates include a more powerful Holinger transmission, designed for 700 Nm torque permanently, doubling the mileage of the previous unit to 10,000 km.

The mileage of the chassis components, such as the wishbones or the GT3 – spec central locking wheel hubs, has been increased to 20,000 km, pushing running costs down to €3.90 per km.

To better meet the needs of teams and drivers, the KTM X-BOW GT4 MY2018 also comes along with a new Motec M142 engine control, which replaces the previous Series ECU, and a complete motorsport cable harness, including an electronic fuse box.

A new user-friendly control panel in the cockpit further aids the driver, who can now rely on a Motorsport Traction Control (GT3 Technology), and an LMP headrest.

Hans Reiter: “Although we already have a GT4 vehicle that offers one of the best value for money, just take a look at the VLN where there’s no other car that runs faster lap times for less money – we want to further reduce the costs for the teams and the drivers with these updates.”

The price of the KTM X-BOW GT4 MY2018, which can be ordered immediately, is €152,360 (net). A total of 15 vehicles are on the production plan for Spring 2018, production in February is already sold out.
