Another lifestyle toy, Polaris Slingshot

Get your helmet and race with the T-Rex or even the Morgan 3-wheelers!


...how about a tuned-Elio!

Looks like fun... lets see the specs:

1750 lbs (kinda porky IMO)
2.4L GM ecotec engine - 173 hp @6200 / 144 ft/lbs @ 4700
5 spd manual trans

All for the low (starting) price of $20k.

There's a new trike in town from Polaris

If they do it, it's no scam...

Incredible!

It is an incredible machine and looks totally fun to drive, but if it really becomes popular the govt WILL regulate it safety wise and kill it off. That is one beautiful looking 3 wheeler, I usually hate their looks. I would love a 4 wheel machine that looks like that.

Nope. We already have a number of similar vehicles on the road, already... they haven't changed the rules yet.

The game-changing part here would be the price... which sounds fantastic for something like this.

Too cool! Good price, it seems. I was always disappointed in the KTM for it's price tag. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

VW should have made. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-9Wgsy2IM6q...-3-wheeler.jpg

VW already had an Elio, back in 1986!
