The Austrian company KTM Sportmotorcycle GmbH, known primarily for its motorcycles, is preparing to enter the top league of automobile manufacturers with its first full-fledged road model.

In 2008, KTM brought its first car to market under the name X-Bow, which, however, with four wheels has much more in common with motorcycles than with cars — a simple, lightweight, ascetic mid-engine sports car without a roof over the head and wind shields, with a short base and motorcycle dashboard.

Later, the X-Bow was equipped with a ridiculous windshield in the road GT version, and the racing GT4 version got an all-weather hood, allowing not to get wet during races.

The experiment with the first four-wheeled car was deemed successful and the management of KTM decided to develop the theme.

The entire outer skin, including the lifting hood with swinging vents, is made of carbon fiber.

The new model is named X-Bow GT2 in the racing version and X-Bow GTX in the non-competitive track version.
