Yes, the Slingshot has three wheels. Polaris has gone back to the drawing board and come back with something dangerously exhilarating. This three wheeler sits inches from the ground and is open cockpit.

Luckily, the Slingshot has waterproof seats, three-point belts, and forged aluminum roll hoops. With its 5 speed manual transmission and steering wheel the thrill is endless. Although many states are having issues placing this beast into a category (motorcycle, vehicle, off-road) it is for now legal in florida to drive on public roads with a motorcycle endorsement.

Concealing a mounted GM ecotec 2.4-liter engine under that sleek hood the Polaris Slingshot pushes roughly 173 Ponies and 166 pound-feet of torque when on the asphalt. In other words, we recommend you buckle up!

Luckily when you rent any of our slingshots, you will have an upgraded optional windshield available on the SL models, which is just about tall enough to keep the bugs out of your teeth but not from splattering against your forehead. Each seat has an all in one, molded headrest that’s designed to force your head down when you’re wearing a helmet. First Drive goes into all the details of this bad boy down to the inches.
