Consumers can expect to see high-performance stunts integrated with expert, precision driving.


“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 the team at SlingshotX.com”

In the video, Foust drives a highly modified Polaris Slingshot SL vehicle built by SlingshotX.com and custom builder SlingStreet. The vehicle sports a custom turbo-charged engine, 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.
