Ford Performance & RTR Vehicles Team Up for Limited-edition Mustang
Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s company and Ford offer a Mustang with modern aggressive styling and superior performance.
World champion drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. and his RTR Vehicles team are working with Ford Performance Parts to provide a definitive collaboration of style, performance, and fun with the new Series 1 Mustang RTR. This latest addition to the Mustang family looks to be an exciting entry.
“Our goal was to take the driving and owner experience of the iconic Ford Mustang to the next level,” said Gittin, President and Chief Fun-Haver of RTR Vehicles. “This collaboration has created a Mustang that offers smile-inducing street driving, diverse capability on the track and a very distinctive owner experience for those looking to stand out from the crowd.”
The Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance features RTR’s signature modern and aggressive styling. The Ford Performance suspension has adjustable sway bars that can change the chassis balance for either passive or MagneRide™ suspensions to suit twisty backroad driving, laying down lap times, drifting, or blasting down a drag strip.
“Ford is bringing more Mustang magic to more customers than ever,” said Eric Cin, director, Vehicle Personalization and Accessories. “Vaughn is a great partner, bringing a new flare for Mustang to younger audiences through drifting and other exciting performance fueled fun, we can’t wait to see what he’ll do with this car.”
The Series 1 package, which will arrive in select Ford dealerships in early 2019, is designed to be installed at the dealer on any Mustang EcoBoost Performance Package 1 or Mustang GT Performance Package 1 model. It will come with a Ford factory limited warranty and Ford Credit financing for those who qualify. However, only 500 Series 1 Mustang RTR conversion kits will be sold.
Other unique features include staggered wheel and tire package, and Performance Pack 1 spoiler with RTR Gurney flap. There is a RTR grill with lighting, body, and aerodynamics packages, and graphics that signal the car’s performance motives. Of course there is exclusive RTR fender badges, floor mats, shift knob, and puddle lamps for even more custom touches. Also included is deck lid trim panel badging, radiator cover badge, a serialized dash plaque, illuminated sill plates, and certificate of authenticity
