Polaris Slingshot and Mad Media have unveiled the highly anticipated performance driving video, SlingshotX. The film, featuring three-time U.S. rally cross champion and four-time X-Games gold medalist Tanner Foust, is an epic demonstration of the Polaris Slingshot's performance capability. In the film, fans can watch a highly customized, 400-horsepower Slingshot tear through the nighttime streets of downtown San Diego and experience the heart pounding, adrenaline rush of Slingshot.
"Shooting SlingshotX was intense and I was amazed by what the vehicle could do. We pushed the vehicle to the limit in some pretty extreme locations and it handled them like a champ," said Foust. "Polaris has created an incredibly unique machine that has been taken to another level by UTV Underground."
In the video, Foust drives a highly modified Polaris Slingshot SL vehicle built by SlingshotX.com and custom builder Sling Street. The vehicle sports a custom turbo-charged engine with a 5 speed manual and a hand brake, amongst other race-inspired modifications, making this one of the best handling and most powerful Slingshots ever built. Consumers attending the 75th Annual Daytona Bike Week will be able to see the SlingshotX vehicle first hand, at the Polaris Slingshot booth, March 5 – 12.
"SlingshotX is pure exhilaration, testing the limits of both driver and machine. Tanner Foust, Mad Media and all involved have created an incredible testament to the capability of this one-of-a-kind vehicle," said Craig Scanlon, vice president of Slingshot.
