Motor City rocker Kid Rock is the inspiration for what may be the most over-the-top custom Polaris Slingshot yet. First shown at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas earlier this month, the SS-R concept has more than custom-made carbon fiber body parts and fancy paint.

Under those custom-painted carbon fiber body panels with hydrographic carbon fiber body trim lies a 2.4 liter standard issue E-tec engine that has been tuned and turbocharged to produce 400 horsepower. The turbo is intercooled, and the SS-R concept arrives with a custom high-performance exhaust system. That should put the Slingshot’s traction control system to the test.

Built by Bob Fehan Motorsports, the Kid Rock concept is fitted with a carbon fiber wing spoiler astern, custom lighting elements, racing seats with custom-embroidered “Kid Rock SS-R” logos, flat-bottom steering wheel, racing pedals and short-throw shifter on the standard five-speed transmission.

Chassis upgrades include high-performance racing wheels and tires, three-way-adjustable road-race shocks, billet aluminum rear shock mount, road-race stabilizer bar, bushings, adjustable links and brake master cylinder support brace and cross-drilled high-performance brake rotors with composite pads.

The Kid Rock Slingshot’s body and cockpit details include a polycarbonate hard-coated windshield, racing safety belts, soft doors, auxiliary turbo boost and oil pressure gauges, accented gauge bezels, a rearview mirror with integrated navigation display and display for an in-vehicle video system.

Steve Menneto, President of Polaris Motorcycles (yes, remember that it is considered a motorcycle in most jurisdictions) observed, “Standing out from the crowd and delivering an on-road experience like no other is what Slingshot is all about.  With its distinctive style to its turbocharged performance, the Kid Rock SS-R concept is as bold as the rocker himself.”

“The Kid Rock SS-R concept takes the Slingshot experience to the next level of customization and performance,” said Bob Fehan, president of Bob Fehan Motorsports. “It’s a combination of elements that come together cohesively to create a unique statement about the freedom of the Slingshot and the free expression of Kid Rock.”
