Arctic Cat has not yet responded to our request for more information, but that doesn’t mean we can’t play one of our favorite games – Rampant Speculation!
Bruce and Tommy Scranton of the Pro Armor/Wildcat Race Team competed in Round 1 of Monster Jam in front of a 60,000 fans at QualComm Stadium in San Diego, Calif.
The Pro Armor-equipped Arctic Cat Wildcat is equipped with a Speedwerx clutch, Yoshimura exhaust, GBC tires and Douglas Sector wheels.
Tommy Scranton started in seventh in the first race. He passed most of the competition in the first two laps and on lap three he moved into first place which he held until the finish line! In the second race Scranton started on the front row and took the holeshot. He proceeded to check out in the second race with a dominating win in his Pro Armor prepped WildCat.
We’ve been lucky enough to flog the Arctic Cat Wildcat on some gnarly desert terrain, but not everybody has had the opportunity. If you want to get behind the wheel of this four-wheeled beast, Arctic Cat is hosting a series of Wildcat demos in Southern California’s Imperial Sand Dunes – aka Glamis.
“The new Drive Evolution Wildcat trailer display will be the epicenter of demo ride opportunities, as well as a place where Arctic Cat consumers can relax, and associated aftermarket partners can display their Arctic Cat off-road vehicles and product,” Arctic Cat says in a release.
Arctic Cat is inviting all Side x Side enthusiasts to experience a Wildcat first-hand on the following holiday weekends. More dates will be added in the future.
News of a sporty new side-by-side from Arctic Cat unveiled at a dealer show quickly spread through the off-road media a couple of weeks back, but Arctic Cat was very tight lipped on the matter. Only now has the Minnesota-based manufacturer had anything to say about it.
Below is a press release we received from Arctic Cat about its intriguing new machine. There really isn’t much new information about the vehicle (no pictures were included in the release), though it looks like it may be in dealerships within the next 12 months. We will keep you posted as soon as we hear anything else.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Arctic Cat showcased an unexpected ROV dubbed “Wildcat” during the close of their 2012 snowmobile dealer show in Nashville, TN.
Arctic Cat has strived to bring innovative designs and technology to their customers since 1962. With 2012 marking the brand’s 50th Anniversary, the bold off-road styling cues of the Wildcat’s bodywork coupled with its aggressive sport stance and interior suggest Arctic Cat will move to the forefront as the industry-leader in the pure sport ROV segment.
