Now You Can Be The Proud Owner of A 472 Horsepower Mustang RTR
Based off Vaughn Gitten Jr.’s drift car, these Mustangs are begging to shred tires.
If you feel the regular Ford Mustang GT is a little too mundane for your liking, you may want to consider the Mustang RTR based off Vaughn Gitten Jr.'s famous drift Mustang.
Available with two specifications, Spec 1 and Spec 2, the Mustang RTR takes your factory Mustang and transforms it into a mean tire-eating machine. The great part about the RTR is that the build uses Ford Performance parts and thus does not void the warranty. Plus, the Mustang RTR can be ordered and delivered directly to a participating Ford dealership.
Spec 1 includes strictly cosmetic upgrades with new diffusers, side skirts, wing and other goodies to give the Mustang RTR a mean look. If buyers want to take their Mustang to the next level, they can opt for Spec 2, where performance parts come into play. Spec 2 includes 2-way dampers, axle-back exhaust, a Ford Performance tune, upgraded sway bars, 20 inch Tech 7 wheels and more. If the donor mustang is the 5.0-liter V8, owners can expect horsepower ratings to jump from 435 horsepower to 472 horsepower and if the donor Mustang is the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder, they can expect a jump from 310 horsepower to 345 horsepower. Neither increase is too drastic, but between the tune, new exhaust note and aggressive look, the RTR is a great package.
If owners decide their donor Mustang will be bare-bones, they can get the whole V8 Spec 2 package for $42,000 or $35,000 for the EcoBoost Spec 2 package.
