ABOUT MUSTANG RTR
Mustang RTR is the vision of World Champion Drifter and Mustang mad man, Vaughn Gittin Jr. When creating RTR, his dream was to introduce something new to the Mustang world that appeals not only to younger generations, but also to car enthusiasts as a whole, as well as any traditional muscle car enthusiast. The Mustang RTR takes the best of multiple automotive cultures and tastefully meshes them together into a final product that most anyone should be able to appreciate immediately and see themselves behind the wheel of – whether they are trashing a set of tires, blasting a straight, carving some turns, linking a section on the drift circuit, or simply just cruising along with their better half.
Vaughn has successfully made his dream a reality with the Mustang RTR. This new generation brand of Mustang that comes in the form of a dealer-installed package is currently available in select Ford dealerships around the world. The package was designed and manufactured in partnership with Classic Design Concepts. CDC is a Michigan-based automotive company that has an unprecedented reputation for quality and style. Their warranty track record and customer service is paramount.
