RACING KTM X-BOW
X-Bow to debut in 2008 sports light series
KTM have chosen to run two cars in the hands of motor racing team Reiter Engineering, one driven by Italian Loris Bicocchi – tester of the Koenigsegg CCR – so they can drive development of future customer motor sport applications as well as the production model.
Compared to the production model the main changes to the race version are to do with safety dictated by the FIA regulations. Changes include the rollover bars changed to steel instead of aluminium; additional layers of zylon fibre to the flank of the monocoque to prevent penetration of sharp objects; a racing silencer on the exhaust; and added protection between the front and rear wheels.
This racing sport version of the X-Bow will be offered as a new model from the end of 2008 so you can all get your hands on one, though prices are yet to be released.
