Vaughn Gittin Jr is a man of surprises. When he’s not slicing tires in his Formula D Mustang RTR or drifting the Nurburgring in a Ford Raptor, Mr. Gittin drives the insane all-metal ’69 Ford Mustang RTR-X.

Yes, we know, you never heard of it.

The Ford Mustang's V-8 Is Here to Stay - At Least For Now, Anyway

The Ford Mustang’s V-8 Is Here to Stay - At Least For Now, Anyway

Nope, Ford is not axing its V-8s

Yes, car manufacturers are switching to smaller engines aided by forced induction. Some are even electrifying their powertrains, mixing petrol units with e-motors, but that doesn’t mean the V-8’s days are numbered - yet.

Take Ford, for example. According to a report by Ford Authority, the carmaker maintains a positive position as far as V-8s are concerned and has no intention of killing off this particular cylinder configuration in the foreseeable future.

The Ford Mustang Crashes Enough, And a New Recall Says It Could Get Much Worse

The Ford Mustang Crashes Enough, And a New Recall Says It Could Get Much Worse

Best cover your bases before you get into an accident

The Ford Mustang is the world’s best-selling performance car, but just because it’s popular, that doesn’t mean it’s immune to mechanical issues and the recalls that come after that. Brace for some bad news, then, owners of the 2020 Ford Mustang. There’s a good chance that your muscle car will be recalled after Ford submitted documents to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) saying that more than 38,000 units of the 2020 Mustang could have a defective brake pedal bracket assembly.

The defect is largely contained to Mustangs with automatic transmissions; Mustangs with manual transmissions aren’t affected. It’s a tough blow for owners of 2020 Mustangs that are affected by the recall, especially if you live outside the U.S.

You'll Definitely Believe What Happens To This Mustang Doing Donuts

You’ll Definitely Believe What Happens To This Mustang Doing Donuts

Being careful won’t make you look cool, but it’ll keep your ’Stang from meeting this fate

Just because the rooftop parking lot is empty, that doesn’t mean you can just go there and do donuts to your heart’s content. Sure, the empty space is great for these burnout runs, but the debauchery can also go sideways at a moment’s notice, especially if you’re not careful. Two people found that out first-hand when they went to an empty rooftop parking lot, intending to leave rubber in concrete. After doing a serious of burnouts, the driver inexplicably loses control of his rear-wheel-drive ‘Stang, causing the muscle car to slam cleanly into a light pole. Worse, the whole bone-headed scene was captured on video by a couple, who were also at the rooftop parking in their own Mustang doing whatever it is they were doing. Fortunately, the driver and passenger of the crashed ‘Stang didn’t appear to get seriously hurt from the crash. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for their prized ‘Stang, which now has a long date with mechanics before it gets back up on its feet, or, in this case, all four wheels.

This Classic, Mid-Engined Mustang Is the Muscle Car We've Always Deserved

This Classic, Mid-Engined Mustang Is the Muscle Car We’ve Always Deserved

We’re fans of a car that hides its true form

The 1969-1970 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 arguably marked the end of an era, as the GT500 began to be built in-house by Ford. Carroll Shelby’s actual involvement in the design of the car was reduced, somewhat telling of the colder relationship between the two sides that was further underlined by the fact that Ford raced the Boss 302 at the same time - not a Shelby model. But all that gets put aside when you look at the renders of Rostislav Prokop that has envisioned an unusual mid-engined Mustang: one that keeps the proportions of the front-engined original.

2021 Ford Mustang R67 by Aviar Motors

2021 Ford Mustang R67 by Aviar Motors

The classic Mustang appearance paired to a Tesla twist

Ford is yet to gift the Mustang with an all-electric powertrain. Of course, we now have the Ford Mustang Mach E electric SUV but indisputably, that’s not even close to what the Mustang stands for. There’s also the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400, but that’s hardy a road-legal vehicle.

That said, Aviar Motors set up to do what Ford won’t for the time being. In the process, the Russian EV start-up found time to bake in a 1960s twist into its all-electric Mustang, which instantly doubles the (silent) muscle car’s cool factor. Here’s all you need to know about the Aviar R67.

Be Amazed As Someone Painstakingly Carves a 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 Out of Wood

This is a masterpiece of epic proportions

A California Dealer Is Trying to Charge McLaren Money For a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

You Could Buy This Shelby GT500 or a Lamborghini Huracan

It has been a year and a half since Ford revealed the Mustang Shelby GT500, and yet here we are still talking about price gouging. The last time this happened, a dealer in Riverside California was asking $185,890, which stood for about $80,000 worth of “market adjustment” or dealer markup. This time, another overzealous California dealer has taken things to a whole new level of stupid.

Did You Ever Think You'd See a Normal Looking V-6 Mustang Than Can Run 9-Second Quarter-Miles?

Did You Ever Think You’d See a Normal Looking V-6 Mustang Than Can Run 9-Second Quarter-Miles?

This V-6 Mustang runs the quarter mile in 9.9 seconds!

When it comes to drag racing, V-8 engines are the norm. Supercharged, turbocharged, or naturally aspirated, V-8s are the number one choice for the drag strips. Sure, you can still find imports that use V-6, inline-six, or even inline-four mills here and there, but when it comes to American cars, it’s hard to find one that’s not powered by a V-8. But then there’s people like Joshua Blume, who built himself a V-6 Mustang that runs the quarter mile in less than 10 seconds.

Shelby GT500 vs Chevy Corvette Z61 on the race track: Which car is faster?
