REITER Engineering is the only manufacture worldwide of Race - Lamborghinis, Camaros and KTM X-BOW GT4 vehicles. Its core business sectors are the race team division and engineering unit. The company is able to provide a full range of race services and development services for race cars. It coveres the full range of motorsport service from design, development, prototyping, testing and manufacturing. Up to now, the race cars developed by Reiter Engineering fight on 4 continents in several championships (e.g. Blancpain GT Series, ADAC GT Masters, Asian GT, Pirelli World Challenge) and in the History (24h von Le Mans) against many other brands successfully. The main objective of the REITER Strada concept is to bring the technology, experience and know-how from many years of motorsport activity to the street. A typical Lamborghini, in itself a work of art, nevertheless leaves a few areas for optimization.
The genesis from the KTM X-BOW GT4
Reiter Engineering owner Hans Reiter is convinced that after many weeks of intensive work that the KTM X-BOW GTR will be ready in time for the “BOP” of the SRO, and indeed “Ready to Race”. “First of all I have to compliment all those who have been involved at KISKA, at KTM Technologies and the KTM Sportcar GmbH who have all worked without a break, just as my own people have really done a perfect job in the shortest possible time. We are now in the end phase and if we can keep almost exactly to our self imposed, extremely tight schedule, it is looking good. In keeping with this program, the first tests are planned in mid to late February.” Now that the various development processes are completed and most of the production processes have begun for the many special parts, Hans Reiter is now able to communicate the price of the KTM X-BOW GTR. “At € 139,000 we have managed to offer an attractive price for the most modern and safe GT4 racing car on the market. The GTR features the most advanced racing technology, which is normally only the case in higher categories. And in matters of safety, the monocoque technology offers the most unique protection ever in this class up to this point in time. In addition, thanks to the special construction of our latest racing car, the ‘running costs’ are kept within encouraging limits.” As with all KTM vehicles, Austrian design studio KISKA was responsible for the design development of the KTM X-BOW GTR. The studio also played a key role in designating the new KTM X-BOW as a “GTR”; a class of vehicle with a rich motorsports heritage that possesses much cachet amongst automotive enthusiasts. By creating the X-BOW GTR, KTM is also taking an important next step in the ongoing evolution of the X-BOW. The brand launched the KTM X-BOW R in 2009 and the KTM X-BOW GT, which features a wraparound windshield, in 2013. The addition of a third iteration of the KTM X-BOW, one that is fully covered and “Ready to Race” is the next logical step in the vehicle’s development.
