2016 KTM X-Bow GT Black Edition

Jump to Images

Showcased at the current Geneva Motor Show, the X-Bow GT Black Edition is limited to a strict production of only 5 cars. The car stands out from the X-Bow GT range for its very thorough use of raw carbon fiber, which includes the monocoque and all components, including the underfloor, the wheel arches, and engine covers. All of that carbon fiber is accented with a sticker kit, viewable from the side in several of the photos.

The interior features hand stitched seats with Black Edition on the headrest, all-aluminum machined gear and hand brakes, and a multi-media interface with a rear-view camera. There is an aluminum badge on the center console with vehicle production number and the signature of the employee who built the car by hand.

The engine has been tuned to 320 hp, a 20 hp over the stock GT's 300 horses, and a quick shifter has been added.

(from KTM Press Release) SPECTACULAR, STRICTLY LIMITED EDITION MODEL: KTM X-BOW GT “BLACK EDITION” RESPLENDENT IN CARBON!

  • Just five units of the exclusively equipped small series production model to be built
  • With the KTM X-BOW GT “BLACK EDITION” “fully carbon” is more than a catch phrase
  • Despite its exclusive nature, the limited model even offers a price advantage of € 10,000

The Geneva International Motor Show, which presents many limited edition models every year, begins on Tuesday. This year KTM is also at the fair, but with a racing car. The new KTM X-BOW GT4, the car that since last year raced from victory to victory in the GT4 Class will be displayed on the stand of lubricant partners MOTOREX. In addition, at the same time as beginning of the big auto show in Switzerland, there is an announcement of a very special and exclusive limited edition model for all KTM X-BOW fans who prefer to be on the road and only go occasionally to the racing circuit.

The KTM X-BOW “BLACK EDITION” sets whole new standards when it comes to the meaning of a “fully carbon fiber vehicle”. In addition to the unique and well-known monocoque, which introduced the rigidity and security of a Formula racing car monocoque into series-production vehicle, this unique model also features all components in high-tech carbon fiber. Whether it is the complete underfloor, which thanks to the KTM X-BOW’s sophisticated aerodynamics helps to achieve the down-force of a Formula racing car, or whether it is the ‘Bonnets’, the so-called body parts at the front and the rear of the vehicle, or naturally also the wheel arches and engine covers.

The comprehensive design of the “BLACK EDITION” takes on the characteristics of the well-known KTM X-BOW GT, but has been further extended with special details. The Sticker Kit, which is mainly located on the side of the monocoque, is unique in its color. The 18” and 19” BBS rims, which are also part of the standard equipment of the special model, are a perfect match. The exclusive fixtures and fittings continue on the interior of the car. Hand-stitched comfort seats with color coordinated stitching and stamped with the “BLACK EDITION” logo on the headrest, a suede leather steering wheel with color-coordinated 12-hour markings and matching stitching, right up to the all-aluminum machined gear and hand brake levers, not to mention the multi-media interface with rear-view camera!

Rounding off the exhaustive range of extra features being offered for the KTM X-BOW “BLACK EDITION” is a black anodized sport exhaust, a quick shifter for quicker gear-changing and a factory engine tuning to 320 hp. As a very clear sign of the exclusivity of this special model, there is an aluminum badge on the center console which states the vehicle production number of this limited special edition and the signature of the employee responsible for the hand-construction of the model. Only five units of the KTM X-BOW GT “BLACK EDITION” are available immediately at a price per unit of €99,000 (excl. VAT). The vehicles can be collected in conjunction with an exclusive factory tour directly from the manufactory in Graz, Austria.
