    Polaris has confirmed that its revolutionary three-wheel motor-vehicle, the Polaris Slingshot™, is making its European debut in Q4 2015.

    Slingshot has been honed for the European market by U.S manufacturer Polaris and will offer petrol-heads a completely new motoring experience.

    A recognised leader in the global powersports industry for over 60 years, Polaris designs, engineers and manufactures high quality all-terrain vehicles (ATV), including the Ranger and RZR side-by-side vehicles, snowmobiles, as well as Victory Motorcycles and the iconic Indian Motorcycle marque too.

    Taking this extensive powersports experience, Polaris is writing a new chapter with Slingshot, delivering an entirely new on-road driving experience.

    It’s an innovative three-wheel vehicle with a high-strength steel space frame, a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine and sport-tuned suspension with an open cockpit.

    Slingshot Brand Manager for Polaris EMEA, Dario Baraggia, firmly believes that customers in Europe can expect to have a truly breathtaking experience from Slingshot ownership. He says: “Slingshot offers European customers something truly unique. It has exhilarating performance in a package that receives head-turning looks wherever it’s driven.

    “The USA has already discovered the thrill of Slingshot, so much that it is currently sold out with production filling back orders. We predict a similar trend here in the EU and will therefore open a pre-order process to give the first customers a chance to secure the first units coming to the EU.”

    Polaris Slingshot™ features include:

    2.4-litre Double Overhead Cam Engine

    5-speed Transmission

    High strength steel space frame

    Lightweight aluminium swingarm

    Carbon fibre reinforced drive belt

    Low weight

    Low centre of gravity

    Antilock Braking System

    Electronic Stability & Traction Control

    Forged Aluminium Roll Hoops

    Distinctive Bodywork & LED Lights

    Specifications, pre-orders and deposit function, dealer network and price information will be announced in the coming weeks.

    The aesthetic appearance of the U.S market Slingshot model is different to the European version. Please only use imagery for European consumption from this media site.

    Not one picture of the European model. At least they'll have a good line on rear axle bearings...

    Maybe they'll introduce it in a completely new color! Ohhh, Limited Edition...

    Because we make more cool stuff than they do.

    The SS is a really wide vehicle for European B and C roads. Sounds like fun!

    Maybe they should worry getting out orders here first before going overseas. The weather sucks most of the year when I was stationed in Europe.
