Ford has unveiled today the RTR package designed by Vaughn Gittin Jr. The package will be available for all 2011 Ford Mustang models. The company also announced a new Mustang V-6 package will be available in late 2010.

The Mustang RTR package includes Ford Racing M Falken FK-452 tires, unique 19-inch wheels, and RTR-exclusive interior details and striping scheme. It is available at select dealerships. The exterior is distinguished by a chin spoiler with splitter and supports, rocker splitters, a rear diffuser, and aluminum rear spoiler. On the interior it adds RTR-exclusive floor mats, shifter knob, and emblems.

Vaughn Gittin Jr. has done an excellent job beefing up this Mustang. This particular muscle car is a classic and when you take some good ol’ fashioned American muscle and take it to the gym, the result is magnificent.

Press release

The 2011 Ford Mustang is known for its incredible performance and impressive looks, and now there’s a new package that takes those qualities one step further – Mustang RTR. The dealer-installed package from Vaughn Gittin Jr., driver of the Monster Energy/Falken Tire 2011 Mustang GT in Formula Drift, and Ford Racing Performance Parts, is aimed toward a new generation of Mustang owners.
The performance upgrade comes with Ford Racing calibration with a high-flow filter and high-performance Falken FK-452 tires, which offer precise handling from five linear ribs and three-dimensional rounded blocks. Stiffer, wide steel belts offer greater tread rigidity, superior grip and high-speed stability, and high-tension carcass and high turn-up construction increase handling response and high-speed stability.

  • Ford Racing mufflers
  • Ford Racing handling pack (performance-tuned dampers, bars and springs)

Mustang RTR commands attention with unique styling that is highlighted by a chin spoiler with splitter and supports, rocker splitters, a rear diffuser and aluminum rear spoiler. A distinctive Mustang RTR stripe scheme adds more distinction. The interior showcases RTR-exclusive floor mats, shifter knob and emblems.

Taking the lead

The introduction of Mustang RTR also plays off the success Gittin is enjoying in Formula Drift, with a significant lead in the championship point standings. Driving the Monster Energy/ Falken Tire 2011 Ford Mustang GT, Gittin took first place at the opening competition in Long Beach, Calif., and most recently placed second at Road Atlanta.

Ford Mustang model is absolutely oozing with angst, but this one seem too bulky. Well, I just only hope that the engine of this one will be enough for it.

I’ll take the wheels and the kit, but you can keep the graphics and the tuning. I’d rather wait for a supercharger kit and do my own custom exhaust.

I agree, it looks more aggressive and sporty. With the sports front damper and rear diffuser it became more attractive.
