Hands up: who wants a 700bhp+ Ford Mustang RTR?
Vaughn Gittin Jr reveals 2018 modified ‘Stang: more power, more aero, more muscle
Vaughn Gittin Jr – a gentlemen not averse to firing anything he drives sideways, at much speed – freely admits that the regular Ford Mustang is a nice car. But, in his own words, “he couldn’t leave it alone”.
This is the result of his tinkering. It is the 2018 Ford Mustang RTR, set to be revealed at the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas, and heading to select Ford dealerships across the globe.
It’ll be offered in various stages of tune, ranging from Spec 1, Spec 2, and Spec 3, though every Spec will feature the RTR design pack, new lights and graphics, and a plaque signed by the man himself. Those design flourishes you will be able to spot and decide all on your own if they are acceptable.
Power, however, will be more than acceptable. RTR has yet to divulge full performance data for any of those specs, but we’re promised “turnkey packages with over 700 horsepower” from that 5.0-litre V8. Bear in mind the last time we saw a Mustang RTR, it was pumping out 725bhp. So, y’know, expect more.
“With our unique styling across the entire RTR line-up,” Gittin Jr says, “available multi-purpose adjustable suspension components and power upgrades that our customers have grown to love and use to push their RTRs to the limit.”
If you’re at SEMA, this 2018 RTR Mustang will be on Ford’s stand, at which point we’ll have information like prices and other such nuances.
