    > This is a fledgling category that, confusingly, is supposed to bridge the gap between GT4 and GT2

    I think this is meant to be "bridge the gap between GT4 and GT3"

    Hey, it actually looks like a real car.

    If you know what I mean.

    I’d be awesome if KTM of all automakers could be part of the Manufacturers Series, with this X-Bow GTX being their Gr.3 entry and the X-Bow GT4 being their Gr.4 car.

    This I like from the article pic!

    Not the biggest fan of the X-Bow but would make an excellent entry to the race category cars in GT Sport and as MIE1992 just said if the
    Xbow were moved from N-Class to Gr 4 car.

    Hope to see more pics soon!

    Too bad because this car looks like these modern day track hypercars, like the Senna and brabham bt62.

    I think the X-Bow R is (mostly) fine where it is in the N-Series, and I’d rather see the actual X-Bow GT4 go to Gr.4.

    It would be :bowdown: if KTM makes a less powerful road legal version of this racer.

    Indeed. This is a much better looking car and also with an Audi engine.

    I love the styling of this. What a fabulous and purposeful looking machine.

    Wow. KTM only used to be known for making off-road motorcycles and now, they make this.

    By the way, I wonder what specific transmission does this one have. It's not stated in the article so I think it's also worth to know.

    Why does every new car thread invariably turn into a GT wishlist without fail?

    Still looks pretty cool though.

    Scintillating post content right here.

    Pfft. As if I asked for your own unnecessary opinion regarding that matter.

    Oops. Looks like someone had to fire his shots at you for stating this.

    I mean, when you post stuff that is literally the most painfully obvious stuff in existence, it's going to get pointed out.

    That doesn't exactly take away from my point.

    Not really an opinion as much as a fact. You didn't add anything new to the discussion. Great jerb picking up on the sarcasm

    And when you have to flock in threads for the sake of pointing it out, it only shows you have big problems that you can't even just urge yourself to ignore it.

    Anyway, I guess I might just leave as well so this won't escalate into another pointless heated argument any further.

    Oh great. Now there is more pointing out of fingers again. :indiff:

    Alright, I've edited the original post so it would make more sense in this thread. I guess it should be enough to make the two of you happy now.

    Can't see them selling 20 cars, I don't think the whole of GT2 has sold 20 in total.

    The test car looks better, this one looks a bit generic.

    Looks like it comes out straight from Tommy Kaira.

    I still find the xBow GT4 to be a MUCH better looking car, even though they are completely different beasts :D

    Looks hot!

    Ever since GT1 was disbanded and GT2 cars became GTE/LM I thought GT3 cars were due for a category reboot. Even more so now that GT3 cars are faster than GT2 & GT1 cars from 10 years ago.

    The new GT2 class would have also likewise been called something else by now to avoid this confusion.
    I'm not hearing much from the grapvine in terms of interest for this new category bar this post. What other manufacturers are jumping on this beside Audi and KTM?
