KTM X-BOW RR Video At Nürburgring Nordschleife: 7:25,72 Min.
2012 24h race winner Christopher Haase tackles the Nürburgring Nordschleife to show the capability of the new KTM X-BOW RR. KTM announced it had sets records for its X-BOW R model, taking it around the Nürburgring Nordschleife track in an impressive time of 7:25:72, at the time the 17th fastest Nürburgring lap to date!
This blew away KTM’s previous performances on the Nürburgring track, based on the KTM Sport Club in 2009, which clocked in at 8:10. The 7:25:72 lap time puts it only .02 seconds behind a Ferrari Enzo.
The boutique Austrian automobile producer (mostly known for bike and motorcycle development) designed the X-BOW R as a sportier version of its original X-BOW model. This includes lower suspension and a new engine mount set-up to allow for better handling.
Designed for racing, the X-BOW R offers a two-seat, open super car layout with the expected carbon fiber monocoque frame. It features a 2.0 liter TFSI engine fine-tuned to reach 360hp output.
Excluding fuel, the X-BOW R weighs in at 790kg and hits top speeds of 231km/h. It features a manual, 6-speed gearbox, and a rear wheel drive with mechanical limited-slip differentiation. Its inline 4-cylinder gas engine possesses direct injection and exhaust turbocharging with intercooling.
