Has anyone seen a Polaris Slingshot?

I believe I was following one today. Yes in the cold weather this HERO was commuting in an open top 3 wheeler.

I'm guessing at the name. I googled ktm xbow 3 wheeler and this popped up. Looks like the thing I saw.

classic corvette coupe on a transporter heading into Leicester city centre down narborough road this morning.

Quite a strange sight to see coupled with the fact that the truck had only 2 other cars on it. Another classic roadster and an A-class merc on italian plates.

Audi RS3 around the Haunton area of Staffordshire....playing a great "tune' with the exhaust paddles & the popping on the overrun - heard it many times now & I always think "someone sounds like they're having fun"!

There's a cool 50's style American pick up truck that I see parked outside the local smoke house when I cycle past every Friday.

I overtook one in Lapworth in my Xbow last week. Awful looking think IMO.

Edited to add, your E46 looks ace - what a cool bit of kit!
