The 2013 edition of the Geneva Motor Show will open its doors next week and among the many interesting cars that we’ll see at the auto show is the GT version of the spectacular KTM X-BOW. This can be characterized as a more civilized version of the original X-BOW, a model about which we’ve heard rumors in the last few months. Now, KTM has confirmed these speculations and they’ll show the GT variant on March 5 when the Geneva show begins for the media.
What sets this model apart from the regular version would have to be the windscreen which fully surrounds the cockpit so it should offer more protection to the driver.
Unfortunately KTM did not disclose other info about this car but according to various reports it will also feature a removable roof panel which the driver can use at speeds of up to 130 km/h (80 mph).
Power will probably come from a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine capable of pumping out 240 HP (177 kW) and 229 lb-ft (310 Nm) of torque. It should allow the KTM X-BOW GT to perform the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint in less than 3.9 seconds.
