Here's a unique vehicle with edgy styling that is sure to provide you with a visceral driving experience. The Polaris Slingshot is a vehicle that many believed to be a substitute for motorcycles - for those that were too scared or too old to ride a motorcycle. In reality, Polaris seems to have really brought more attention to a newer and fun vehicle genre for people of all ages. Other three wheelers have been on the market for a number of years, but were offered by smaller manufacturers in small numbers. The Slingshot is a fun vehicle that Polaris dealers struggle to keep in stock, so here's your chance to get your hands on one. This version is the top of the line, highest horsepower Slingshot that is offered - the Slingshot 'R'.
So what does the “R” stand for? Racing? Really quick? Rarely a dull moment? Recipe for fun? We think all of the above apply, but per our research it looks like the “R” simply designates the top of the line performance model, similar to a Civic Type R. Speaking of a Civic Type R, the Slingshot is just a hair quicker to 60 than the Civic, but it feels miles quicker since the Slingshot is an open “autocycle”. Wind in your hair, no doors, screaming engine at your feet - it's a treat for your senses. Our client managed to resist putting many miles on this Slingshot, as it shows just under 350 miles on the odometer and looks like new.
Edgy styling is the name of the game when looking over the exterior of this odd little “autocycle”. Bright blue metallic and black are strategically placed over the body panels further accentuating the hard lines and aggressive nature of the Slingshot. A full set of tailights are integrated at the rear, and a full set of headlights and turn signals are neatly integrated at the front. Black alloy wheels wrapped in sticky tires, outside rear view mirrors on both sides, and a windshield are other highlights of the exterior.
Once seated in the Slingshot, you're greeted by many of the same accessories that you would expect to find in the average car. Seatbelts, supportive seats, a hand brake, traction control button, cruise control, radio/navigation, controls for the radio on the chunky steering wheel, and even cupholders. At the front of the Slingshot is a 2.0L inline four that offers approximately 200 horsepower and has a screaming 8500rpm redline. A 5 speed 'automated manual' transmission handles gear selection.
This unique “autocycle” is sure to put a smile on your face whenever it's driven, so we've come up with another “R” that corresponds to this Slingshot - 'Reaching for floss'…..to get the bugs out of your teeth that is.
