A Slingshot made for the road

Polaris Sling Shot

When the owner of Rivercity MotorSports took the new Polaris Slingshot for a drive over the weekend, he couldn’t help but notice the attention he was getting.

“People were turning their heads, taking pictures”, said Jeremy Vanhoek.

The new Slingshot is a three wheel vehicle, two in the front and one in the back, that is a cross between a motorcycle and a sports car.

The two seater is a 6.5 feet wide high performance vehicle with a 176 horsepower 2.4l ecotech engine and five speed transmission, said Mike O’Connor sales manager at Rivercity Motorsports.

The sporty vehicle comes equipped with bluetooth technology and the interior of the convertible is completely waterproof.

Polaris Sling Shot“It drives like a sportscar, handles like a dream”, O’Connor said. The operator requires a “G” license to drive on city streets as well as a helmet and is not designed for off-road.

“It’s the best feeling you’ll have driving a vehicle!”

O’Connor said the Slingshot is extremely good on gas and is priced comparable to a small high performance sports car. Prices start at $26,499 plus HST & licensing and are currently available exclusively at RiverCity Motorsports on Great Northern Road.
