Last week, we told you about the waterfall of Ford Mustangs to come from the 2009 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Well, this week, the river has started to rise with the details on the Ford Mustang RTR (Ready to Rock) floating out in plain sight. Set up with the trending and talented World Champion Drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr, this new 2010 Mustang specialty car is the result of a combined effort between designer Caleb Clark & Classic Design Concepts. This slick-styled Mustang RTR has received some seriously cool design cues. One particular point of interest was the rear diffuser update–definitely a nice touch! The black matte hue helps to offset some of the hue balancing issues many have made note of on the 2010 Mustang. Various Ford dealerships are going to carry this SEMA special in February 2010 and it will be equipped with a few tasteful upgrades to keep enthusiasts excited: a K&N high-flow airbox, Falken (of course) tires, a Ford Racing damper kit & springs, a Baer braking system, and a tuned exhaust setup. In addition to the “go goodies”, the Mustang RTR has a few additional touches to the exterior worth noting as well. An exclusive RTR rear diffuser, front splitter, aluminum rear spoiler, RTR emblems and vinyl all give this pony car a unique racing drifter’s touch.

Mustang RTR – a new generation of Mustang
World Champion Drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. is excited to introduce a new generation of the Ford Mustang to the world – the Mustang RTR (www.MustangRTR.com). Along with designer Caleb Clark and the help of Classic Design Concepts, Vaughn has successfully brought his ultimate vision to life in the form of this modern, aggressively-styled Mustang with the perfect mixture of performance upgrades for any spirited driver.
The Mustang RTR will be available in multiple color combinations at select Ford dealerships nationwide beginning in February of 2010. This package will first be available with the 2010 Ford Mustang GT; however, a V6 version will be soon to follow. Performance upgrades include a Ford Racing calibration with K&N high-flow air filter (+9HP), Falken FK452 performance tires, Ford Racing damper kit with 1.5 inch lowering springs, Baer drilled and slotted rotors, and extremely throaty mufflers that leave no doubt that the Mustang RTR is Ready to Rock.
The Mustang RTR includes aggressive exterior elements that offer OEM quality and fit. These exclusive elements include an RTR rear diffuser, front splitter, aluminum rear spoiler, RTR side and rear emblems, as well as a distinctive RTR vinyl scheme. The vehicle also features a tasteful chin spoiler and sleek side splitters. The aggressive stance of this car is defined by the 19×9.5 Mustang RTR wheels. The interior of this visually-stimulating vehicle consists of RTR-specific floor mats, shift knob, emblems. Each Mustang RTR owner will become a part of the exclusive RTR registry and will receive a numbered badge with their new machine.
“There is no question that Mustang’s performance, quality and looks have evolved straight from the factory,” says Vaughn Gittin Jr. “However, the majority of the Mustang aftermarket has not fully followed the progression with regards to aesthetics. I saw the need to get something out there that was different from traditional Mustang styling. Something that could open up a new set of eyes to the already-incredible Ford Mustang, while keeping the current Mustang enthusiast smiling.”
“Pure passion for Mustang has fueled me and my team every step of the way and is the single reason I decided to chase this dream and never lift – just as I have with my driving career,” Vaughn continues. “While I have had this vision for years, unfortunately it has taken so much time for me to find the right people who have helped take this vision from my head all the way to production. I feel like a proud father and cannot wait to see this car on the road. Trust me when I tell you, this Mustang is Ready to Rock!”
The current estimated price for the RTR package mentioned above is $7,800. The Mustang RTR will be displayed at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas at the K&N Filters booth # 22443 November 3-6, 2009.Categories: Aftermarket, Events, General
