X-Bow GT2 Concept

X-Bow GT2 Concept 2020

Performance and purism, united in a unique, extreme design, and armed for adventures on the most legendary race tracks in the world, the KTM X-BOW GTX & GT2 CONCEPT will set new benchmarks in racing. Keeping the focus on the essentials (weight reduction, performance, aerodynamics, handling), they provide numerous new technical highlights, increased ergonomics and usability as well as an almost revolutionary safety standard. It's the first GT racing car to combine a homologated monocoque with a homologated GT rollcage and a carbon fibre competition seat. Alongside superior technology, the new models are obviously making an extraordinary statement on design: A race car, as pure as a race car can be. On this basis, the KTM X-BOW GTX and GT2 CONCEPT models are able to compete against high-profile super sport cars in terms of power-to-weight-ratio, cornering speed, stopping distance, top speed and, last but not least, lap times - whether it's on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, in professional racing or during track days. Of course, both models remain absolutely faithful to the DNA of the original KTM X-BOW: Radical, puristic, precise, performance driven.

01. GT2 Concept

Audi 2.5 litre five-cylinder TFSI

The Audi five-cylinder engine of the KTM X-BOW GT2 CONCEPT is a thoroughbred racing engine. Thanks to decades of experience of Lehmann Motorentechnik, the up to 660 hp motor is a masterpiece of engineering. The high-revving turbo engine is unique in terms of peak performance, power characteristics, throttle response, lifetime and reliability and makes every single drive an experience, thanks to its characterstic, distinctive sound.

Central locking wheels

In professional racing, every second counts. In order not to lose any time during the pit stop, the KTM X-BOW GT2 CONCEPT has a central locking adapter and corresponding, high-quality, milled and forged wheels from OZ as standard.

Exhaust

Technology partner AKRAPOVIC contributes the exhaust system for the KTM X-BOW GT2 Concept and combines the high-tech mix of titanium and stainless steel with a racing catalytic converter and efficient noise insulation.

Carbon rear wing

The requirements of the SRO GT2 racing series make a modified rear spoiler necessary. In order to further improve the ingenious aerodynamics of the KTM X-BOW GT2 CONCEPT, it has a full carbon rear wing.

02. Engine & drivetrain

Audi 2.5 litre five-cylinder TFSI

The legendary five-cylinder engine from Audi is the modern, powerful heart of the KTM X-BOW GTX. In the KTM X-BOW GT2 CONCEPT, this engine becomes a thoroughbred racing engine thanks to know-how from Lehmann Motorentechnik.

Electric gear shifter with sequential gearbox

Thanks to the electrical gear shifter from SaReNi, a technology service provider from the Reiter-Engineering environment, the KTM X-BOW GTX and KTM X-BOW GT2 CONCEPT offer LMP technology that not only protects the gearbox, but also saves weight.

Exhaust system

The laser cut stainless steel exhaust was developed exclusively for the KTM X-BOW GTX and GT2 CONCEPT, a catalytic converter and a silencer are optionally available on request.

120 litre tank

Thanks to its 120 litre capacity, the FT3 safety tank is prepared for all requirements. Equipped with a VLN (NLS) valve as standard, the tank can also be converted with a quick refueling option on the left, the right, or on both sides of the car.

MoTec motor control and data logger

The standard MoTec engine control includes a MoTec data logger and thus allows full data analysis in racing.

Power Distribution Unit

The KTM X-BOW GTX has an electronic fuse box from SaReNi. The fuses are no longer physically available, but programmed individually. This reduces the error rate and ultimately the probability of failure during racing, since short voltage peaks do not "drop" any physical fuse (and paralyze the car or a system). Rather, the electronic fuse "engages" itself again, and the car continues to drive without any problems. And that - individually adjustable - even several thousand times in a row.

03. Chassis

Carbon monocoque and GT rollcage

The survival cell of the KTM X-BOW, which has been tried and tested in a dozen crashes since 2008 and has been built more than 1,300 times, is extremely stiff and safe, weighing just around 80 kilograms. As first GT racing car, KTM combines this monocoque with a completely new designed and according to FIA Appendix J homologated GT steel rollcage for the GTX and the GT2 CONCEPT, that withstands the multiple weight of the vehicle in the rollover pressure test and that also has side struts in the monocoque as well as a full cross behind the driver's seat.

High-strength tubular steel rear frame

The rear frame is made of high-strength steel tubes. On the one hand, it houses the 2.5 liter five-cylinder engine from Audi and, on the other hand, the sequential six-speed gearbox from Holinger, represents the mounting points for the rear suspension and provides the attachment for the high-performance radiators. Crash elements at the rear of the car ensure that the valuable technology remains as undamaged as possible in the event of rear-end collisions.

Sachs racing dampers

The dampers from Sachs can be adjusted in rebound and compression as well as in height on the front and the rear axle. On the front axle it is installed in a push-rod arrangement including an adjustable stabilizer.

Aero profile suspensions

The wheel suspensions made of high-strength steel are designed in an aero-profile form, which is particularly important on the front axle, since there the air is led to the laterally arranged radiators past the wheel suspensions in the rear. They are combined with aluminium wheel carriers milled from solid, which, thanks to ingenious mechanics, have a quick camber adjustment integrated, which eliminates the need for time-consuming modifications when changing the camber and, above all, does not affect the track set-up of the car.

04. Aerodynamics & Bodywork

Canopy

The spectacular "Jetfighter Canopy" of the KTM X-BOW GT4 will also cause a stir on the KTM X-BOW GTX and KTM X-BOW GT2 CONCEPT. However, the design has been completely revised, the formerly one-piece 'Plexiglass' canopy is being replaced by a carbon frame with an inserted windshield and separately opening glass doors on both sides, whereby the complete canopy can of course still be opened for entry and exit. The front screen is made of Makrolon and can be replaced quickly and cheaply if it is worn.

05. Safety

Braking system

The brake calipers on the KTM X-BOW GTX and GT2 CONCEPT are already designed for long-distance racing. A 6-piston endurance brake system with a 378 mm disc diameter grips at the front, a 4-piston brake system with a 355 mm disc diameter at the rear.

Traction control & racing ABS

Both traction control and racing ABS can be adjusted manually. The eight-way traction control ensures optimal acceleration out of corners and provides more safety on wet tracks. The type 3 racing ABS from Continental can be adjusted in ten steps according to the track conditions as well as to influence the vehicle balance towards understeer or oversteer, depending on the driver's wishes when turning into corners. Both selector levers are located directly on the steering wheel and can be operated intuitively there.

Competition seat

Together with partner Recaro, KTM has developed an FIA homologated competition seat made out of carbon-kevlar, which, in combination with the GT rollcage and carbon monocoque, establishes the extremely high safety standard of the KTM X-BOW GTX and GT2 CONCEPT. Thanks to individually attachable paddings, the shell is adaptable to every driver, and a homologated six-point racing harness from Schroth is standard as well.

Airjack system

Nowadays, an airjack system is used as standard in racing, and already the KTM X-BOW GTX is equipped with the system from Krontec, which speeds up tire changes on track days and makes minor service or repair work easier.

06. Ergonomics & Comfort

Steering wheel

The suede racing steering wheel of the KTM X-BOW GTX & GT2 CONCEPT is completely new in terms of looks, feel and ergonomics and has an integrated display, that always keeps the most important information in the driver's field of vision. Every single important control element is located in the central part, made out of carbon fibre. Of course, the steering column and thus the position of the steering wheel can still be adjusted in height and depth.

Electric power steering

The electric power steering replaces the hydraulic power steering previously used in the KTM X-BOW GT4 and offers several advantages. In principle, it's completely programmable, in the end, the customers can look forward to at least three different set-up variants, which can be selected according to the preferences and needs of the driver. The electric power steering also saves weight.

Pedal box system

Togehter with the - in this vehicle segment rather unusually - variable adjustment of the steering wheel, the KTM X-BOW GTX and GT2 CONCEPT also have the tried-and-tested pedal box, which can be adjusted by around 30 centimeters, and which, especially in long-distance races, allows adaptation to drivers of different sizes in seconds.

Rear view mirror camera system

Instead of classic side mirrors, the new KTM X-BOW GTX relies on a high-tech system with two cameras and two screens on the right and left of the vehicle respectively in the cockpit. This absolute latest technology should even be approved for road traffic.

Interior ventilation

Air routing and ventilation have been revised, the air outlets are also new and repositioned. Thanks to the higher air output and a stronger fan, the cockpit is significantly better cooled, and the ventilation of the windshield has also been improved.
