PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla., Feb. 23 (UPI) -- There will be no slipping under the radar for Yoenis Cespedes this season, no matter how young it is.

Cespedes made sure of that Tuesday, when he showed up at New York Mets spring training in Port St. Lucie, Florida driving a custom Polaris Slingshot.

The outfielder revved the red and grey car's engine as he backed into his space in the morning upon his arrival. The custom car has a red No. 52 painted on the hood. It boasts three wheels and a spoiler.

Cespedes paid about $68,000 for the flashy ride, according to ESPN. The car features custom carbon-fiber leather seats, a 12-speaker sound system, forged wheels, and LED lights, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell.
