To extract more power from Audi’s five-cylinder turbo engine, KTM modified the injection valves, the wastegate, the intake system, the exhaust system and the ECU software. Power is sent through a Holinger MF sequential six-speed gearbox, while high-performance brakes with six-piston callipers designed for endurance events provide the stopping power.
Thanks to its 120-liter FT3 safety tank, KTM claims the GTX will “drive further respectively longer than the competition” at track days and long-distance races.
One of the car’s most striking design elements is the ‘Jetfighter Canopy’ taken from the KTM X-Bow GT4 and modified for the GTX. The one-piece ‘Plexiglass’ canopy is replaced with a carbon frame with an inserted windshield and separately opening glass doors on both sides. The complete canopy can still be opened for entry and exit, however.
Elsewhere, the side mirrors are replaced with two rearview cameras and a massive fixed wing dominates the rear. Sadly, these extensive racing modifications mean you won’t be able to enjoy the GTX on the road.
