The Polaris Slingshot, a three-wheeled tricycle which will reportedly go on sale in the US in September, has been revealed.
The Slingshot is powered by a 2.4-litre Ecotec engine with 171bhp and 166lb ft of torque. That's connected to a five-speed manual transmission, while the kerb weight of the Slingshot sits at 790kgs. The model sits on 18-inch wheels at the front, with larger 20-inch units at the rear.
Inside, drivers get analogue instruments and a 4.3-inch central display screen, which incorporates a reversing camera, Bluetooth integration, USB audio input and six speakers. Storage units behind both seats are large enough to hold a race helmet, says Polaris, while there's also a locking glove box in the cockpit.
As a Tricycle rather than a car, all Slingshot drivers must have a valid motorcycle license, and must wear helmets when driving the model.
Prices for the Polaris Slingshot start at $23,999 in the US, equivalent to around £14,000.
