KTM X-Bow GT Dubai Gold Edition by Wimmer-RS

Vehicles like the KTM X-Bow GT have one purpose and one purpose alone – fun. This is why they are the way they are – low, light, powerful, with great suspension settings for track and completely devoid of comfort.

A Dubai-based customer of Wimmer-RS wanted to improve his track beast further, both in terms of performance and looks. First the looks. I’m not very into gold wraps. Somehow they make the car more of a showoff machine than a proper driver’s car even with this kind of a combination, although I do have to say that gold combined with black does not seem all that flashy, which is a good thing in my book.

However, under the hood things are getting far more interesting. There isn’t much straightforward information about the car now, but what we do know is that the lightweight rocket has all new exhaust and engine software which boost the power to 485 hp and 520 Nm of torque. Having in mind the low weight and track-oriented nature of the car, the acceleration to 62 mph stands at 2.9 seconds, while the run to 124 mph takes just 9.9.
