Home / Social media / Cars / Golf R Engine In a Racecar? It's Called The KTM X-Bow GT4


Take a look at this KTM X-Bow GT4 Racecar that has a Golf R engine.

Since the debut of the first generation KTM X-Bow, the world has associated this car with one purpose, and one purpose only; to be the ultimate driving enthusiasts all-in-one racecar!

What makes the KTM X-Bow completely different is because of it's approach to the world of racing. Usually how it goes, is one would take a normal road-going car and covert it into a race orientated car. But what KTM has done is develop a track-ready car with all the necessary specs and accessories for track racing as standard, but still allowing the driver to legally drive to and from the track as the KTM X-Bow comes standard with indicators, tail-lights and headlights etc. Unfortunately, it has been banned from the road in a number of countries, one being the United States.

The KTM X-Bow GT4 features a Holinger sequential gearbox to keep the driver feeling engaged while still delivering seamless gear changes at a fraction of a second. The engine comes straight out of the Volkswagen factory, with the Golf's 2-litre TFSI 16V DOHC engine.

But the KTM X-Bow GT4 is a lot faster than your Golf R, thanks to its incredible aerodynamics, as well as being significantly lighter.
