In my case the same price as my Cobra! It has a GM EcoTech 2.4L 4 banger 173 hp with a 5 sp trans! A bit heavy at about 1700# wet! Truth is it reminds me of driving the Cobra, just more wind and less power!
My first ride was 500+ miles, Oklahoma City to St Louis! I varied the speed a bit since it only had 2 miles on it, but for the most part it was very close to 80 mph! Long day, got up at 4:00 A.M. and was off
to the airport, didn’t leave the dealer in Shawnee Oklahoma until almost 4:00 P.M. got home a little after 11:00 P.M. On the road you forget it’s a 3 wheeler, cruising 75-80 mph it has no bad habits! FUN!

Put a LS7 in it! That'll wick-up the fun factor.

Nope. Well, it uses electricity for some things, but not propulsion. Polaris Slingshot : 3-Wheel Motorcycle - Reverse Trike

There's a bunch of turbo and supercharged ones around, some with 300+ rwhp! Turn off the traction control and it just smokes the heck out of the ONE rear tire! It comes on pretty good around 3500 rpm when you roll into it! Not really fast by any means but enough to be fun! It's only turning 2500 at 80 mph, my 5sp Honda Si is turning 4200!

And since this is a Cobra Site 6th gear with my new set up in the Cobra is going to be useless, I went with 3.55 gears!

Dam. That thing must get awesome fuel mileage.
Nearly 800miles and your gauge is still full.
Must be electric!

Congrats and enjoy. Must of been a fun trip.

The truth is the MPG is not all that good! On the trip (75-80 MPH) it only got about 28, around town it's 25-26, I am play with it alot but that's not great!
