The Mako Slingshot is powered by a 100cc two-stroke engine hooked up to a direct-drive axial-flow jet drive.
Top speed is about 30 mph. It is about the same as the world's fastest e-board, that can go up to 34 mph.
Depending on weight of the driver, cruise time will vary, but with a full tank, Mako should be good for a 40-minute fun.
The best thing about the Mako Slingshot is that it is incredibly small: 74 in long and 24 in wide. So, you can put it almost everywhere: in your car, or on the roof...
The rider can control the throttle using a handheld remote, while there is a push button start for the engine. It is very easy to use Mako overall, but designers and engineers of Mako Slingshot are quite sure that their product will not leave experienced drivers with cold heart.
And you can buy one of these babies if you have $US 9, 800.
