On the side of the body, there is a step, there will be two bars that run along the subframe, you’ll be able to open the door and step right in. Those steps will not only make it easier to get in the car, they’ll also double as a mud guard.

On the front of the car, there will be four lights in total, along with a LED strip that lights up like a smile. The Speed S on the grill will also light up on the LE and RG edition models.

Let’s Talk Progress

Questions & Answers

Can you upgrade to an air conditioned Speed UTV now?

Yes, keep in mind, that car will not be out until Summer of 2021.

If I put a front windshield on my open cab Speed UTV will it effect the air flow to the radiator?

You should be able to put in a full or half windshield. However, Speed UTV has some further testing in the Arizona summer to heat to provide a final answer to that. On the bottom of the car the skid plate is blocking the low pressure from the underneath the car to optimize the cooling system, on the LE and RG edition model there is a an air scoop in the roof that should get the air flowing.

Can we get a raw/unpainted cage?

Sorry, no, we can’t get you a raw cage.

Can I get pre-welded doors bars?

Yes, they will be available to ship right from SpeedUTV.com. They will come as a pre-notched weld it yourself kit. It can also be installed by one of the Speed UTV certified FAB shops.

What are the coil springs colors?

Coil springs will be charcoal gray.

Is the Roll Cage race legal?

Yes, almost legal right from factory. The dimensions of tube are as required by SCORE and BITD, .95″ wall and 1 3/4” in diameter. Only thing you’ll need to add on are the door bars, and weld the clamps on.

Can you strap child seats to the car seat?

Yes, you should be able to strap the child seat right into the seat.

If I order a Speed UTV today and upgrade to RG Edition?

Things You Should Know

  • Similar to the XX, the car will be prewired extensively. You’ll have a prewired plug under the dash for another raditor. Two whip light mounts, along with prewiring for whip lights, the whip lights will be far back from the antenna mount.
  • On the race car, the chase light will be wired directly to the battery. Meaning when you shut off the car, the chase light will still be on, you’ll have to get out of the car and physically unplug it.
  • There will be a big bore upgrade aftermarket kit to push your engine up to 1260cc’s. Keep in mind this is not race legal in the UTV class. This is mostly meant for duners. The big bore upgrade kit is going to be plug and play, it includes everything you would need from the lower block, to steel sleeves. It can be installed at a Speed Certified Motor Shop.
