2019 Ford Series 1 Mustang RTR

2019 Ford Series 1 Mustang RTR

Pricing hasn't yet been announced, but the package will come with a full factory warranty and be limited to just 500 cars when it goes on sale in early 2019. Built as a collaboration with Vaughn Gittin Jr. and his RTR team, the auto consists mostly of aesthetic modifications to a Performance Pack 1-equipped Mustang GT or EcoBoost.

To set it apart from your run-of-the-mill Mustangs, the Series 1 changes up the front end design with an RTR grille, lighting and graphics package. The vehicle is called the Series 1 RTR, and it's built to drive. Adjustable sway bars and a staggered 19-inch wheel setup (9.5 inch-wide fronts, 10 inch-wide rears) augments its grip at all speeds, while RTR adds a Gurney flap to the car's spoiler to boost downforce at high speeds.

Elsewhere on the bodywork, the Series 1 Mustang RTR features RTR badging on the grille, fenders, and decklid trim panel. The auto also features adjustable anti-roll bars so owners can tweak their car's handling.

Professional drifter Vaughn Gittin, Jr., gets up to some insane antics in his customized Ford Mustang RTRs, and now Ford is offering regular old Mustang customers the next best thing-sort of.

"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", Gittin, whose official title is listed as "president and chief fun-haver" at RTR Vehicles, said in a press release issued Monday.
