KTM X-BOW RR laps Nordschleife in 7:25 [video]

A KTM X-BOW RR has managed to lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:25.72.

Behind the wheel was Christopher Haase who won the GT4 European Championship in 2008 driving a KTM X-BOW GT and also triumphed in this year's 24-hour race on the Nordschleife with an Audi R8 LMS Ultra.

His latest achievement is with an X-BOW RR powered by 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter Audi TFSI engine with 360 HP (265 kW). Haase had just two laps to achieve this time and he did it in the second flying lap. The KTM X-BOW RR is just as fast as a Ferrari Enzo (7:25.7), while the number one spot still belongs to the Radical SR8 LM with a time of 6:48.

The previous fastest KTM was the Club Sport (240 HP) variant that in 2009 completed the lap in 8:10.
