Some of the highlighting changes include a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a potential of delivering a maximum power of 250kW and peak torque of 700 Nm. This is further hooked to a more durable transmission that increases the service time to 10,000 kilometers from 5000 kilometers. The improved durability will be also reflected in the chassis and the suspension wishbones along with center-locking wheels needing maintenance every 20,000 kilometers.

The manufacturer will be building only 15 units of the latest version and to our surprise, all are already sold. The 2018 KTM X-Bow GT4 is now priced at  $233,120 (Php 11622197.60 approximately).
