SpecificationsEdit

The Slingshot has a rear-mounted, 3-cylinder, gasoline engine with normal aspiration and induction. The engine gives out a total of 100 horsepower. It can go from 0-60 mph in about 10 seconds. The car uses a five-speed manual transmission.[2]

The Slingshot has a combined fuel economy of 45 miles per US gallon (5.2 L/100 km; 54 mpg‑imp). The design of the car is derived from the past of the Chrysler Group, notably the muscle car era of the 1960s and 1970s. The Slingshot also features a canvas roof panel. It bears more than a passing resemblance to the smart Roadster Coupé, which was in production from 2003-2007.[clarification needed]
