The vehicle's lower bumper has also been ditched, leaving room for a carbon-fiber apron and larger splitter.

Although the 2015 Mustang RTR is not yet ready to show its sexy body in public, the brand has released a couple of renderings that reveal some of the styling details.

As with previous RTR projects, the fifth-gen Mustang is highlighted by an aggressive body kit. Up front, a new, simpler grille that incorporates triangular LED lights on its sides replaces the stock piece. The vehicle’s lower bumper has also been ditched, leaving room for a carbon-fiber apron and larger splitter.

Around back, the Mustang RTR showcases a race-like diffuser, a big trunk-lid spoiler and "RTR" graphics between the tri-bar taillights. A set of black, multi-spoke wheels and black stripes running across the car’s beltline and embracing the hood scoop complement the silver paint job. Of course, RTR will be offering numerous exterior finishes and stripe packages, so you shouldn’t worry if you’re not a fan of silver-painted Mustangs.
