New Mustang RTR

Sound Ford was amazed at SEMA ’09 when Vaugn Gittin Jr showed off the RTR-C Mustang. His personal Mustang had a supercharged V8 at 550 HP, a custom interior and a full carbon fiber body. It’s a shame the things cost is somewhere up in the millions. Luckily for us not millionaires we have the Mustang RTR, a much more affordable version, at the cost of the pretty C in the name.

The only problem with our RTR now, is that there really isn’t too much of a space for it in today’s market. With specialty Mustangs coming in at a rate too fast for us to count most people wouldn’t get too excited here.

Regardless, Mr. Gittin wants to get his RTR out there. Being a series champion and a major figure in Formula Drift Gittin wants to try to offer up his take on a Mustang to newer enthusiasts.

On the exterior of the Mustang we have new side splitters, front chin spoiler and splitter, a new rear diffuser, an aluminum rear spoiler and 19 by 9,5 inch pin spoke wheels made just for the RTR. Inside we have a fairly standard Mustang with the RTR logo scattered around and a pitch black ball for a shifter knob. The only change we see under the hood is a K&N air filter in the airbox.
