See the upcoming RTR Vehicles collab with Ford Performance at a dealer near you soon
Vaughn Gittin Jr., the world champion drifter who has been a Ford fan favorite in any motorsport activity he attempts, has a new collaboration between his RTR Vehicles and Ford’s own Ford Performance division. This new Mustang effort, dubbed the Series 1, mixes RTR’s unique styling with Ford Performance’s power additions to create this latest Mustang.
“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.”
Featuring Ford Performance adjustable sway bars and suspension bits, which work with passive or MagneRide shocks/struts, the Series 1 RTR Mustang uses RTR’s signature aggressive design to differentiate the Series 1 RTR Mustang from others on the road. The Series 1 RTR Mustang is at home on the track, drag strip, drifting, or just enjoying a winding back road on the way home from work.
“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.
