New 2013 KTM X-BOW GT Puts on a Pair of Shades but Doesn’t Look Cool

It’s been a long time since we last heard from KTM about its X-Bow, but at next week’s Geneva Motor Show, the Austrian company will release a new version of its back-to-basics sports car named the GT that gains an odd looking windshield wrap, which for some strange reason, reminds us of the shades used on Jalopnik’s older logo

KTM won’t say anything else about the X-Bow GT until the presentation at the Swiss show, though, when contacted by the French crew at Motorsport-Magazine, a company spokesman said the new model is based on the more hardcore “R” version with the Audi-sourced 2.0-liter turbocharged engine detuned to deliver 281hp (285PS), down from 296hp (300PS).

Until we learn more, head past the jump to check out the official photo gallery of KTM’s latest creation.
