If there is one driver to amp up the blend of fun and performance that embodies the Ford Mustang, it is world-champion drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. The self-taught dynamo relentlessly pursues the best in his own racing records as well as that of the Mustangs he develops with Ford Motor Company.


Vaughn and his RTR Vehicles team worked with Ford Performance on a new Series 1 Mustang RTR. This Mustang focuses on precise street performance, intense agility on the track as well as a driver-centric experience that makes it a powerhouse to drive.


“Our goal was to take the driving and owner experience of the iconic Ford Mustang to the next level,” said Vaughn, president 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.”


This Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance has the styling and performance-enhancing equipment Vaughn’s fans know as his signature. The Ford Performance suspension features adjustable sway bars, which adjust the chassis balance for either passive or MagneRide systems. This allows drivers to go from taming those vicious S-curves to owning the straightaway.


The Gittin Mustang also has a staggered wheel and tire package with a 19 x 9.5-inch front and 19 x 10-inch rear, an RTR Gurney flap and RTR grille along with lighting, body and aerodynamics packages.


To highlight its muscular looks, it has RTR fender badges, floor mats, shift knob and puddle lamps. This RTR Powered by Ford Performance also has deck trim panel badging and a custom radiator cover badge.


The RTR adds a serialized dash plaque, which illuminated RTR Powered by Ford Performance sill plates and a certificate of authenticity.


The Series 1 Package will be available in select Ford dealerships in early 2019. This package can be installed at a dealership on a Mustang EcoBoost Performance Package 1 or Mustang GT Performance Package 1 model. Ford offers a factory-limited warranty and Ford Credit financing for qualified owners. See dealer for details.
