Wimmer - weapons forged in Solingen

Solingen, November 12, 2014

The North Rhine-Westphalian city of Solingen is known for its good cutting tools in the form of blades and knives. Now three other sharp devices are added, but the machines have lost very little in a well-equipped kitchen. From the series versions of the KTM X-Bow the tuner from Wimmer now created three extremely sharp vehicles that cut their joint 1310 PS neither bread nor butter, but the air.

Number 1: The X-Bow GT

First there is the X-Bow GT. Wimmer provides the 850-kilogram lightweight with a Metal catalyst, a modified turbocharger, an optimized high-pressure pump, a special air intake and exhaust system and revised suspension components. If the vehicle is not already conspicuous enough, perched at the stern still a giant carbon-fiber rear wing with adjustable flaps. The standard 285 hp and 420 Nm of torque are passé. 458 hp and 520 Newton meters are on the Wimmer - GT. This gives the Flitze Bow power to weight ratio of 1.75 kilograms per hp, provides a wealth of sprint under four seconds from zero to 100 km / h, making it 255 km / h fast. Cost: 130,000 Euro.

Number 2: The X-Bow R

It follows the actually intended for race use only X-Bow R. The technical optimizations behave similarly to the GT counterpart. Instead of 300 - series - hp and 400 Nm of torque are now 455 hp and 500 Newton meters available. Thus, the 785 kg unladen weight befitting accelerate to 248 km / h. Optionally, Wimmer for the " R " still a reinforced gearbox with sports clutch and a high-end differential lock. Another optional equipment is the central locking of the wheels. For 120,000 Euros, there is the X-Bow R, including street legal and all Wimmer tags to buy.

Number 3: The X-Bow RR

Completely makes the diabolical trio of PS - X-Bow RR. He is with 370 hp while the weakest of the bunch, with 110,000 euro purchase price but also the cheapest. And the " RR " has another big advantage: You will never have to decide between the public road and track. The lack of street legal takes a choice. But you get to wish a special Nordschleife setup including Radlastvermessung. Everything for the hunt on the last missing tenths in race conditions . (ml)
