After turning heads across the country in Red Pearl and Titanium Metallic, Polaris Slingshot is adding a striking new edition

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (July 27, 2015) – After turning heads across the country in Red Pearl and Titanium Metallic, Polaris Slingshot is adding a striking new edition to its line-up – the Black Pearl SL LE – for a limited run starting this August. Fans took to Twitter and Facebook asking Polaris to release a black Slingshot and the brand delivered in a big way at the 2015 Las Vegas Dealers Show. In addition to its sleek new color, the Slingshot® Black Pearl SL LE features dramatic Indy Red color accents on its frame rails, coil springs and swing arm as well as black seats with grey accents. The new Slingshot is packed with exhilarating features including a new low profile tinted blade windscreen that gives the vehicle a more aggressive look and an interior LED white and blue lighting package for an adrenaline-charged nighttime driving experience. Beginning in August, dealers will be receiving a limited quantity of this eye-catching model.


“The Black Pearl LE represents everything Slingshot stands for – exhilaration, innovation and head-turning design.” said Craig Scanlon, vice president of Slingshot. “With a limited time to experience the new Slingshot first-hand, we expect the demand to be huge.”
