First introduced in 2014, the Polaris Slingshot is one of the most unique vehicles in production today, boasting a reverse trike setup and an enclosed, auto-style cockpit — thoroughly blurring the line between motorcycle and street-legal go-kart. Seeking to bolster the three-wheeled contraption’s long-range prowess, the American marque has now unveiled a limited run of what Polaris is calling the Slingshot Grand Touring LE.
Covered by a full roof, the cockpit features a 7” touchscreen infotainment center backed by a Rockford Fosgate audio system, a Ripper Series wind deflector, accent lighting, and quilted seats with bronze stitching — that can be heated or cooled for an additional $1,200 — while the exterior’s been treated to a Fairway Green livery with bronze accents and wheels, and a matching rear fender. Putting down 178hp and 120ft-lbs of torque, the GTLE is powered by a 1,997cc PorStar inline-four engine mated to an automatic transmission, though there’s also an optional performance package that bumps the GTLE’s horsepower output to 203. Either way, the top-speed presumably remains restricted to 125mph. Limited to less than 300 units in total, the 2020 Polaris Slingshot Grand Touring LE is available now, with pricing starting at $33,999.
