Turbocharged Can-Am Spyder Revealed

In case you donít follow NASCAR, Can-Am/BRP will be one of the seriesí official sponsors in 2016. Leading up to the 58th Annual Daytona 500 on Feb. 21, 2016, Can-Am will be the title sponsor of the Can-Am Duels at Daytona Feb. 18th-19th which consist of two 150-mile qualifying races that finalize the starting lineup for the Daytona 500. With an opportunity to be seen by so many eyeballs at once, Can-Am decided to put together a special NASCAR-themed Spyder concept vehicle to showcase its performance potential.

Can-Am Teases Daytona 500 Spyder Announcement In Faux Press Conference

Based on a production version of the Spyder F3, this one-off reverse trike puts out a beefy 150 hp and 137 lb-ft of torque at 6,800 rpm and 5,000 rpm, respectively. To get that output, the Rotax 1330cc Spyder F3 engine receives some breathing assistance from a turbocharger and a set of 3-into-3 Akrapovic straight pipes.

The increased output enables this Spyder to run from zero to 60 mph in a claimed 4.3 seconds and notch a quarter-mile in 12.3 seconds. Perhaps the most exciting feature of the concept is the new SPORT mode with retuned wheel-spin parameters that allow for controlled rear wheel drifts. While pulling away from a stop to the smell of burning rubber has always been fun on Spyders, the nannies always shut down the party whenever corners were approached with too much vigor. Hopefully the SPORT mode and its more hooliganish power delivery will trickle down to production Spyders.
