Polaris’s Popular Three-Wheeler Now Comes With a Roof, Less Sunburn
Designed for joy rides that last all day'
If you live near someone who has too much money, time and inner child on their hands, chances are good you’re already familiar with the Polaris Slingshot, a sporty three-wheeled vehicle that has carved out an impressive niche for itself since its introduction in 2014: according to Autoweek, they’ve sold more than 20,000 units.
And soon, you can be the proud, proud owner of the Slingshot’s Grand Touring LE edition, which — for the first time — includes the addition of a roof over head.
Whether you love it or hate it, the Grand Touring is certainly a ride that will stop you in your tracks. Is it a little corny? Sure. Would that stop us from going full-on Harry and Lloyd and ill-advisedly taking this thing across the country? Hell no. Sign us up. This thing even has gullwing doors.
What’s new and improved from previous models: the aforementioned Slingshade, an extension that blocks the sun but doesn’t totally close you from the elements, a glove-friendly seven-inch touchscreen, navigation, backup camera and audio by Rockford Fosgate. There’s a slew of customization options available to boot, from interior upgrades to color schemes and accessories.

As always, they are street legal, and in 40 states are classified as an autocycle, so only require a driver license. Elsewhere, they do require motorcycle endorsements, but helmet laws will vary from state to state, so that’s on you and your navigator to plan around.
See you out there. Because it’ll be impossible to miss you in this thing.
