Mustang RTR and Mothers Team Up To Build Mothers Ford Mustang RTR Spec 3

WIXOM, Mi. (October 30, 2012) – The Mothers Ford Mustang RTR Spec 3 is a collaboration between Mustang RTR and the team at Mothers Polishes-Waxes-Cleaners. This highly anticipated project made its grand debut at the SEMA Show 2012 at the Ford display in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Mothers RTR Spec 3 will have the opportunity to showcase its performance capabilities at the OPTIMA Batteries Ultimate Street Car Invitational on the Saturday following SEMA, with Mothers’ Vice President Jim Holloway at the wheel.


Based on the Mustang RTR Spec 3 that will officially launch in the first quarter 2014, the Mothers Mustang RTR Spec 3 will showcase the latest aftermarket technology in chassis and engine development, composites, aerodynamics, paint, and audio – coupled with streetability and track-proven performance. The build of the project is a true team effort between RTR, the Mothers team, and some of the best product manufacturers in the business. “We are pumped to have teamed up with the crew at Mothers to give the world a taste of whats to come with the Mustang RTR Spec 3 on and off the track before it becomes available to the public,” says Vaughn Gittin Jr., founder of RTR. “Given Mothers’ deep history and experience in this world, we are flattered that after the fun they had touring the 2013 Mustang RTR Spec 2 all year, they wanted to partner up for the Spec 3 project.”   



The RTR team has partnered with the most advanced performance racing shock manufacturer on the market – JRi Shocks. These state-of-the-art coilovers on all four corners allow the driver the adjustment to achieve the preferred balance for maximum track and street performance.
The Mothers RTR Spec 3 will have RTR’s brand-new Tactical Performance Watts-link, as well as RTR‘s Tactical Performance four-way adjustable sway bars; both of which feature Whiteline bushings for maximum performance and premium ride quality.

The RTR’s extremely lightweight carbon fiber front splitter, roof panel, rear diffuser, and unique fender blisters were built and designed for functionality and next-level aggressive looks.

Having their vehicles done in special hues of red is a tradition at Mothers and this build will be no exception. The BASF R-M Onyx two-stage Candy Carizzma waterborne paint is a custom “Mothers Red” formulated by Chris Guinn, and sprayed by Deshler’s in Orange, California. Mitch Kelly of Kelly & Son the Crazy Painters in Bellflower, California painted the graphics. Complementing the paint, the custom interior as designed by the RTR team was mastered by Stitchcraft Custom Interiors of Westminster, California, giving the Mustang a fresh and exciting look and feel for the driver. 

The exclusive and unique-sounding RTR axle-back exhaust system dev

eloped in partnership with Magnaflow Performance Exhaust. It is coupled with American Racing long tube headers and X-pipe and is sure to flow the over 650 HP forced out by the Ford Racing supercharged 5.0-liter. Using this recipe, the Mother’s RTR Spec 3 will definitely create some incredible music at 7000 RPM.


Did we mention “the best in the business?” Then it should come as no surprise that RTR has teamed-up with the HRE Wheels to supply production wheels for all Spec 3 RTRs. The RTR Spec 3 will come standard-equipped with HRE 501 wheels for the street (19” by 9.5” front, 19” by 11.5” rear) and an optional set of HRE’s extremely strong and lightweight C101 wheels (18” by 11.5” all the way around) for high-grip apex-hugging track duty.

Among the standard features is the Reus Systems audio package featuring a stunning high-power multi-speaker system where the sound is “the closest thing you can come to having an iPod player wired directly to your brain,” according to Rick Reus. This is a production system that, in keeping with the performance level of the car, will rival any aftermarket system regardless of cost.


The team at Mothers Polish is excited to collaborate with Vaughn Gittin Jr. and RTR on the Mothers RTR Spec 3 project. “We discovered a few years back that we share the same driving passion for speed and performance, as Vaughn brought life to a simple wax commercial with his professional drifting skills,” says Jim Holloway of Mothers.

Over the past show season, Mothers campaigned a Mustang RTR on its big rig show circuit, and “we enjoyed displaying it as much as driving it on the Hot Rod Power Tour,” exclaimed Holloway. Those experiences spawned discussions with Vaughn, which led to the collaboration of the one-of-a-kind Mothers RTR Spec 3. “The bonus is taking the car to the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, with proceeds going to the Barrett-Jackson Cancer Research Fund at TGen. This project takes the excellent foundation that Ford provides in the Mustang to the next level of excitement with the standard RTR package. Then Team Mothers is taking it again to the highest level with the RTR Spec 3, and it supports a cause that has great meaning to our family as well as the Jacksons.”


While the Mothers Ford Mustang RTR Spec 3 will be “hard-parked” during SEMA, it will prove its street-ability and track prowess when the show is over by driving from SEMA and competing in the annual Optima Ultimate Streetcar invitational.

Following SEMA, the Mothers RTR Spec 3 will go on tour with the Mothers big rig for the remainder of the 2012 show season, as well as the entire 2013 show calendar until it goes across the Barrett-Jackson auction block for charity in January, 2014.

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.
