X-BOW Power Upgrade Endorsed By KTM

KTM has announced today that it supports the power upgrade of the KTM X-BOW developed by the tuners from ABT Sportsline. The 2010 ABT KTM X-BOW is powered by the same 2.0 TFSI engine from Audi that has been tuned to develop 300 bhp and 400 Nm of torque. This means the 2010 ABT KTM X-BOW can reach 62 mph from start in 3.5 seconds which 0.4 seconds faster than the standard 240 bhp car.

The 2010 ABT KTM X-BOW power upgrade is the only one recommended by the manufacturer and comes priced at £5300.


  • KTM recommends ABT Sportsline performance upgrade for X-BOW
  • Aftermarket conversion gives X-BOW 300bhp and 400Nm
  • Tuned X-BOW hits 62 mph in 3.5 seconds
  • Available through X-BOW service partners costing £5,300 (fitted)

KTM X-BOW owners wishing to take the extraordinary performance of their ‘Ready to Race' sportscar to the next level can now benefit from a significant power upgrade.

Developed by engine tuning experts ABT Sportsline, the upgrade will raise the already-potent X-BOW's peak power to an impressive 300bhp (from 240bhp in standard tune) and boost torque to a formidable 400Nm (from 310Nm), lifting the vehicle's power-to-weight ratio to 380 bhp per tonne.  Crucially, the ABT upgrade delivers these increases while retaining the flexibility of the engine, which provides highly accessible peak power and torque over a relatively wide rev band.

Combined with the vehicle's light weight and Dallara-developed chassis, the increased power will launch X-BOW from rest to 62 mph in just 3.5 seconds – compared to 3.9 seconds in a 240bhp car.

The upgrade – which is the only tuning solution recommended by KTM – will be sold as an aftermarket package and can be retrofitted to all X-BOW models.  It costs £5,300 fully fitted (incl. VAT) and comes with a two year warranty – testament to the extensive development testing undertaken to meet KTM's exacting requirements.

“X-BOW's racecar-inspired chassis and sophisticated aerodynamic package have always given owners the ability to go head-to-head with some of the world's most exotic machinery,” comments Jeff Lau, KTM's X-BOW  Manager for the UK .  “This power upgrade will ensure that X-BOW owners seeking an even more extreme experience can do so in total confidence, building upon the quality assurance of the expert engineering and exquisite finish for which X-BOW is recognised.”

Existing owners interested in equipping their X-BOW with the factory-recommended power upgrade should contact their nearest service partner, where the part can be fitted by ABT's specialist engineers.  Based in Kempten , Germany , ABT Sportsline is renowned for carrying out tuning work on Volkswagen Group powertrains.
