Description

Sling Shot got its name because when viewed in bird's eye view the back of the car looks like a slingshot, the car has a carbon-fiber monocoque with double wishbone suspension and aluminum chassis the body has an angled appearance.

In 2014, the casting was retooled to have the fins at the back connected, with a rivet post moved to under the fins. The base was also changed from metal to plastic.
