Description

The 2020 Slingshot is what we'd call a major refresh if it were a car. The old GM-sourced 2.4-liter inline-four was never an inspiring or memorable engine when it was in a Chevy, and it wasn't doing the Slingshot any special favors, so it's been replaced by a Polaris-designed and built 2.0-liter I-4. It revs higher and makes peak power at redline rather than falling on its face at high rpm like the old engine. Plus, it makes more power: 178 hp in the standard SL trim and 203 hp in this top-end R trim, up from 173 before. It does make less torque, 120 and 144 lb-ft, respectively, but it doesn't matter much in a vehicle with a claimed curb weight under 1,700 pounds. Polaris says it'll do zero to 60 in as little as 4.9 seconds now, sixth-tenths of a second quicker than before. That would also make it a tenth quicker than a Honda Civic Type R. That's downright quick, and it feels even faster on board. Losing the roof, the windscreen, and the doors will do that. Jeeps feel faster when you take the doors off, too. It's science. ***The Slingshot only takes 91 premium gas. Please return the car with gas receipts. Car will be provided with a full tank and needs to be returned with a full tank. Professional hand wash only (provide receipt if washed), otherwise, paint may scratch easily. Any parking tickets obtained will be charged to the renter unless paid (please provide evidence of any tickets accrued and paid). ***Care Notes: The car needs to be returned in the same condition you receive it in. We recommend not to eat in the vehicle as accidents are prone to happen and we would have to charge for the cleanup. Please, this car is NOT for racing or taking onto the track. The vehicle comes with a performance monitor installed which monitors any abuse to the vehicle. We will also check tire tread before/after to determine if it was used for those purposes. Feel free and give it some juice here and there, but please, no racing and no trips to the track! We will know if this is not respected and will charge you accordingly. ****NO SMOKING (Cigarettes, Cigars, Weed, Vaping, E-Cigs, etc.) An additional $250 cleaning fee will be assessed if this rule is violated. --> Be safe and have a great drive! We are here to make your trip as easy and enjoyable as possible. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions before, during or after your trip as we're here to help! *** PLEASE NOTE TURO IS A CAR SHARING COMMUNITY *** In other words, please treat the vehicle as if it was your own. We treat and take care of all of our vehicles as best as we can, so we definitely appreciate when that effort is reciprocated.
