"The Slingshot starts at $19,999, which is a whole lot of crazy for not much money. Based on the initial orders, it turns out that a goodly number of Americans have 20 grand available to look like Batman in his bathtub every time they hit a Starbucks. Of course, novelty only gets you so far. Once the early adopters are sated and Slingshots become a semi-normal sight, continued sales momentum will depend on the machine itself." (For the rest of the review go: caranddriver.com. It's actually pretty funny.) Is it a car or a motorcycle? Even Texas can't decide.
And it supports my own first impression of the thing. Which was "Pretty ridiculous."
This particular specimen turned up on my street today. So of course I had to take pictures. It's almost as good as a two-headed calf... The price? Twenty grand and up.
