The Ford Mustang is definitely a performance machine made to dominate the roads. Nonetheless, the Mustang could be further improved by availing some packages from Ford Performance. To this effect, the newest version of the Mustang offers a wholesome improvement in terms of style, performance and enjoyment. The new Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance delivers a greater degree of driving and owner experience.

Ford Performance in collaboration with World champion drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. and his RTR Vehicles team, came up with a Mustang that dons RTR’s signature modern and aggressive styling as well as with the ability to suit itself to a number of driving conditions.

This is made possible by installing a suspension system from Ford Performance that features adjustable sway bars. These sway bars can be adjusted to change chassis balance for either passive or MagneRide suspensions. In effect, the Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance can adjust for a driving down a twisty backroad, challenging lap times, zooming on a drag strip or even drifting.

Gittin, who also serves as President as well as Chief Fun-Haver of RTR Vehicles, remarked that their goal in developing the new Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance was to take the driving and owner experience of the Mustang to the next level. He noted that the new Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance is a pony car that can offer smile-inducing street driving, diverse capability on the track as well as distinctive owner experience.

To avail of the new Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance, a customer needs to have Mustang EcoBoost Performance Package 1 or Mustang GT Performance Package 1 models, and have it installed with the Series 1 package. The Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance includes a Performance Pack 1 spoiler with RTR Gurney flap as well as staggered wheel and tire package (19 x 9.5-inch on the front and 19 x 10-inch at the rear).

It also includes RTR Powered by Ford Performance deck lid trim panel badging and radiator cover badge, as well as RTR fender badges, floor mats, shift knob and puddle lamps. Also included is the RTR grille with lighting, body and aerodynamics packages as well as graphics. In addition, this version of the Mustang features a serialized dash plaque, illuminated RTR Powered by Ford Performance sill plates as well as certificate of authenticity.

Only 500 units of the new Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance will only be sold in select Ford dealerships in early 2019. Each new Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance comes with a Ford factory limited warranty.
