It was back in 2008 when Austrian motorcycle manufacturer, KTM launched its first sports car- KTM X-Bow. Now, KTM has collaborated with Reiter Engineering to bring the racer variant of the same. KTM recently released this teaser image of its upcoming KTM X-Bow GT4 racer car that will target the hardcore racing enthusiasts. On the technical front, it gets a 2.0-Litre turbo petrol engine that churns out a maximum power of 320 HP and comes paired to a 6-speed sequential gearbox. It also comes equipped with racing ABS system and full racing-spec crash protection.
