Wimmer KTM X-Bow R

Wimmer—also a German retailer for X-Bows—says it will only equip three cars as with a special designated R spec, and has priced the teeny trio at an eye-watering €100,000 ($107,000 at today’s rates).

So what do you get for your hard earned dollars or euros? For one, you’ll find the same turbocharged Audi four-cylinder engine tucked in the X-Bow R, but now it has been tuned to a heady 375 horsepower. A six-speed manual gearbox still finds a home in the car though the gear ratios are said to have been adjusted, helping this track car sprint to 60 mph in a brisk 3.3 seconds.

In addition to gearing, the car’s powertrain has also been fitted with a racing-spec water pump and fuel pump, as well as Wimmer’s own stainless steel high performance exhaust, helping the 2.0-liter Audi engine to breathe a bit easier.

On the outside, the limited edition Wimmer X-Bow R boasts a substantially large carbon fiber rear wing, new front splitter, and a new aluminum undertray to keep the KTM plastered to the road. The X-Bow R’s pushrod suspension is said to carry over, now outfitted with larger Brembo brakes and Toyo semi-slick tires.
