following its introduction to europe at the end of 2015, the design has carved its own niche with enthusiasts already, where the outlandish looking ‘reverse trike’ has, up until now, only been available is its red launch colour. drawing influence from its USA homeland, where it has developed a fast-paced cult following, customers in europe now get greater choice with a new ‘turbo silver’ colored ‘SL’ version plus a further two limited edition ‘pearl’ models.

regardless of specification chosen or trim level, slingshot as standard features: a low, wide stance allowing drivers to feel the rush of the road under their seat; an open-air cockpit with a 360-degree rush of sight, sound and smell; a shared riding experience, giving driver and passenger a front-row shot of adrenalin; optimised weight distribution and proprietary low-profile tires for maximum cornering; lightweight design for powerful acceleration.

  • They are interesting .. I would love to see a third party make a 3-wheeler Morgan-style body for them. This child’s space toy design it too radical.
