Just like we told you he would, drift king Vaughn Gittin Jr. has created a special package for the 2011 Ford Mustang, and now it is available through select Ford dealers.

Gittin Jr. is best known as the driver of the Monster Energy/Falken Tire 2011 Mustang GT in the Formula Drift series. In fact, with a win in the season opening event in Long Beach and a runner-up finish in Atlanta, he has a commanding lead in this year’s Formula Drift championship.

You could say he knows what a Mustang can do – and he wanted to share that knowledge with enthusiasts who appreciate the car’s power and capability. Mustang RTR is his vision for introducing a new generation of owners to Mustang, while catering to traditional Mustang enthusiasts. Cue the drifting beats.

“Vaughn’s goal was to introduce an exciting new package to the Mustang world that resonates with both the younger audience and with traditional muscle car enthusiasts as well, said Mickey Matus, Ford Performance Group marketing manager. “By partnering with Ford Racing to develop the Mustang RTR, he has achieved that goal with ease and illustrates how universal Mustang’s appeal is.”

The dealer-installed package includes a performance upgrade with Ford Racing calibration with a high-flow filter and high-performance Falken FK-452 tires, which offer precise handling from five linear ribs and three-dimensional rounded blocks. The drift tire supplier says stiffer, wide steel belts offer greater tread rigidity, superior grip and high-speed stability, and high-tension carcass and high turn-up construction increase handling response and high-speed stability.

Other performance upgrades include unique Mustang RTR 19x9.5-inch wheels, Ford Racing mufflers and the Ford Racing handling pack (performance-tuned dampers and springs).

Mustang RTR bling is highlighted by a chin spoiler with splitter and supports, rocker splitters, a rear diffuser and aluminum rear spoiler. A distinctive Mustang RTR stripe scheme adds more distinction. The interior showcases RTR-exclusive floor mats, shifter knob and emblems. Have a look at our slideshow for a better idea of Gittin Jr.’s vision.



The package was designed and manufactured in partnership with Michigan-based Classic Design Concepts. The Mustang RTR package is available at select dealerships for the 2011 Mustang GT. A Mustang V-6 package will be available in late 2010. For more information on the Mustang RTR package, visit www.mustangrtr.com.
