SEMA 2018: Vaughn Gittin, Jr.’s Series 1 RTR Mustang

Offering power, performance, and style, the Series 1 RTR Mustang created by professional fun-haver Vaughn Gittin Jr., made an appearance at the 2018 SEMA Show, held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Our goal was to take the driving and owner experience of the iconic Ford Mustang to the next level,” said Gittin Jr. “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.”

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.

According to Gittin Jr., the Series 1 features RTR’s signature modern and aggressive styling. Highlights include adjustable Ford Performance sway bars that can change the chassis balance for either passive or MagneRide suspensions to suit twisty backroad driving, laying down lap times, drifting or blasting down a drag strip.

Other features include staggered wheels (9 x 9.5-inch front and 19 x 10-inch rear), Performance Pack 1 spoiler with RTR Gurney flap, RTR grill with lighting, body and aerodynamics packages, and graphics that signal the car’s performance motives.

“Ford is bringing more Mustang magic to more customers than ever,” said Eric Cin, director of 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.”

Each car will come with a serialized dash plaque, illuminated RTR Powered by Ford Performance sill plates and certificate of authenticity.
