MTX Polaris Slingshot

Power and Performance

This incredible 3-wheel vehicle debuted at the CES2015. The Slingshot is an impressive looking machine on its own but, when MTX was done with this vehicle it was turned into a real live badass science fiction machine. The benchmark for all future Slinkshot builds.

The Polaris Slingshot has an incredible performance, able to reach almost 1G into a corner. This means that it can cut a corner so fast without breaking out that it seams the vehicle is glued to the road!

When you think of installing an audio system into such a vehicle you cannot take the easy road. It needs to keep up with the driving performance enhancing the total experience of driving this incredible machine.

To start the Slingshot received a powerful subwoofer system including two MTX 75 Series 12” subwoofers in custom enclosures behind the two seats. These subs are powered by A 1500W RMS MTX XTHUNDER 1500.1 amplifier. Driver and passenger can feel their music as well as hear it.

Two MTX MUD100.2 amplifiers were installed to power the MTX Signature Series 3-way component speakers. The speakers are located in custom build kick panels wrapped in black vinyl with red accent stitching at the seams.

As a source unit an Apple® iPad® mini mounted in the custom fabricated dashboard is used. To create a stable powersuply able to keep up with the current demands of this high powered system XS Power® batteries are used.

To make the MTX Slingshot even more exclusive the exterior received a custom paint scheme in flat black and gloss red colors. A custom build aluminium air splitter was made and powder coated black. Custom aluminium trim accents were added to the frameless windshield. All three brake calipers, the swingarm, and the drive belt pulley were powder coated and the factory rotors were cross-drilled and slotted. Konig® Wheels with a custom painted red accent ring, Toyo® Tires and Varad® LED's accenting the blood red scheme of this one of a kind vehicle.

As this is an open cockpit vehicle the interior is exposed and so it needed to be “upgraded” to match the outside black and red color theme. Next to the custom build dashboard and speaker pods, the seats are upholstered in black vinyl with embroidered Slingshot® logos in each headrest.
