Polaris Slingshot and Mad Media Unveil SlingshotX Video

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 SlingStreet.

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.
