In 2010, Ford Racing and drifting superstar Vaughn Gitting Jr. announced the Mustang RTR. Much like Shelby, Saleen and Roush who offer performance upgrades for the Mustang, this partnership has brought us a track-ready pony car.

For next year, Ford Racing and Gitting Jr. have prepared the Mustang RTR based on the new 2015 Ford Mustang. Like its predecessors, the new car will get an aggressive looking styling package along with numerous performance and handling upgrades. The base model will get the new 2.3-liter V6 Ecoboost engine with 300 horsepower and for more power hungry souls a 5.0-liter V8.
