Last week, we took a look at a truly unique vehicle unlike anything that’s ever passed through our showroom. Today, we keep up that track record by looking at another crazy automobile that you don’t see driving around very often, a 2015 Polaris Slingshot. Is it a car? Is it a motorcycle? It’s hard to tell, but this beauty is for sale in North Miami Beach right here at Prestige Imports.
[ CHECK IT OUT: 2015 Polaris Slingshot ]
Specs & Features
Turns out, the vehicle does have a definition in most states, but believe it or not it varies. In some states, it’s considered a three-wheel motorcycle. In others, a standard motorcycle, an autocycle, or an “unconventional vehicle.” That’s our favorite. What’s that even mean, “unconventional vehicle?” Whatever its classification and however you yourself want to identify it, this thing is a beautiful beast.
With a futuristic style that makes it look like it could be the vehicular form of an Autobot, this Polaris is a blast to drive and you’ll look awesome while doing it. Powered by a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, the Slingshot is capable of doling out 173 horsepower alongside 166 pound-feet of torque. That’s more power than a standard Honda Civic, and it weighs less than half as much. With a 5-speed manual transmission, ventilated disc brakes and several other performance features, it promises to deliver a blast every time you strike out on the road.
To be a bit more specific, it’s capable of hitting a top speed of 130 miles per hour, running a quarter-mile in 14.6 seconds at an average speed of 95 mph, and hitting 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds. In other words, it’s a quick little vehicle. If you think it’s the right vehicle for you, be sure to get in touch with us right here at Prestige Imports and we’ll get you behind the wheel at your earliest convenience.
