Earlier this week KTM officially launched the X-Bow R which they’ve described as to be a “further development” of the original model. The car is powered by an Audi-derived 2.0-liter TSI gasoline engine that has been fitted with a bigger turbocharger, a new ECU and high-performance fuel injectors. By making these updates, KTM has managed to increase the output of the 4-cylinder engine from 237 hp (240 PS / 177 kW) to 295 hp (300 PS / 220 kW) and 295 lb.-ft (400 Nm).

In order to handle the extra muscles, KTM’s engineers installed a new torque arm that has been directly connected to the car’s carbon monocoque chassis, enabling the X-BOW R to benefit from “significantly” improved handling and torsional rigidity. In addition, they’ve also lowered the center of gravity by 15mm and upgraded the suspension with stiffer dampers and springs.
