Maybe you've all seen this, but it was news to me:

the Slingshot SL is basically the front half of the defunct Pontiac Solstice and the back half of a cruiser bike. The aero-angular plastic shrouds enclose GM’s finest 2.4-liter, 173-hp Ecotec in-line four crate motor, mounted north-south with an Aisin five-speed manual gearbox. All this is betwixt what appears to be the Solstice’s repurposed cast-aluminum upper control arms and 11.8-inch disc brakes. The lower control arms includes an interesting antisway bar arrangement (the attachment is through-bolted about halfway along the lower control arm), which is part of the Slingshot SL’s unique ride-and-handling recipe: Relatively soft front springs, stiff antiroll bar, lots of camber and lots of electronic assistance to null out the Slingshot SL’s self-evident tail-happiness. The Slingshot SL delivers a surprisingly supple ride at cruising speeds and quickly goes neutral-to-free when pushing.
