The engine is carried over as is. In the base S and SL, it produces 178 horsepower. In the zany SLR and even crazier R, the power is turned up to 203 hp. The rev-happy engine will spin all the way to 8,250 rpm.
The R derivative is a new addition to the range. It uses the same engine as the SLR but comes as standard with Brembo brakes for the front wheels. It also comes standard with a ventilated hood to make it stand out more.
The color palette has been extended, but only for top-tier models. Examples of the exuberant hues on offer include Miami Blue, Liquid Lime, and Volt Orange. You can also add additional body panels in a contrasting color, making the car even more unique.
On the practical side, Polaris listened to its customers. They didn't need much, so you can now order a phone mount and an Excursion rearview mirror. Okay, so this car was never going to bother Bentley.
Polaris also enhanced the seven-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay, a USB port, and built-in navigation. These features are optional on all but the R, which gets it as standard.
Pricing for the Polaris starts at $21,499 and goes up to $33,999 for the hardcore R. All models can be ordered with an automatic transmission, but why would you? It will arrive at dealerships early next year.
