Slated to compete in the SRO GT4 and Pirelli World Challenge Series
After releasing a teaser of the car last November 2014, KTM and Reiter Engineering have released another image of their upcoming race car along with some details.
Targeted by KTM and Reiter Engineering to compete at the SRO GT4 and Pirelli World Challenge GT-S classes next year, it now has a redesigned exterior which consist of a new front fascia, a front splitter, larger body panels, an enclosed cabin, a ventilated rear engine cover and a Reiter Engineering branded spoiler.
Under the hood of the KTM GT4 is a 2.0-liter TFSI engine that is rated to produce 320 PS and will be mated to a Holinger 6-speed sequential gearbox with paddle shifters. An additional upgrade to the car will be a racing-spec ABS system.
No further details about the car were given by the 2 companies, but the proprietor of Reiter Engineering, Hans Reiter stated that they are setting the car first for SRO GT4 specifications since they are still waiting for Pirelli World Challenge Series to assign them how much balance, weight and performance can they set the car to.
“Since the new car is based on the KTM X-BOW, the customer is going to get a racing car that has now been tested on the world’s racing circuits for six years. Our next major milestone will be the SRO BOP test in the coming spring,” Reiter added.
