The 2011 Mustang RTR Package

The 2011 Ford Mustang has arrived with the great looks and performance you would expect from Mustang, but now Ford is announcing a new RTR dealer-installed package from Vaughn Gittin Jr. (driver of the No. 25 Falken Tire 2011 Ford Mustang).

In an interview with Mustang News.com Gittin is quoted as saying, “I have been getting ready for the launch of Mustang RTR, which is a project I have taken on as my vision for a new generation of Mustang to get some new eyes on the car. It is a dealer-installed package that has Ford Racing parts on it. Other than that, I have been working on some really big things that we are going to announce soon, including a really big sponsor coming on board shortly. I am out in Charlotte testing my brand new 2011 Mustang.”

The introduction of Mustang RTR enhances the notoriety and success that Gittin has seen in  the Formula Drift, with a significant lead in the championship point standings. Gittin took first place while driving the Falken Tire 2011 Ford Mustang GT at the opening competition in Long Beach. He also took second place in the more recent "Road Atllanta."

Some of the upgrades include in the package:  Mustang RTR 19x9.5-inch wheels, Ford Racing mufflers, and Ford Racing handling pack (performance-tuned dampers and springs).

Mustang RTR transforms an already great looking Mustang into a real head-turner with exclusive styling, accentuated by a chin spoiler with splitter and supports, rocker splitters, a rear diffuser and aluminum rear spoiler. A distinct Mustang RTR stripe scheme adds even more character. The interior upgrades include RTR-exclusive floor mats, shifter knob, and emblems.

When Vaughn Gitten Jr. was asked what he liked most about the new Mustang, he replied, “It is unbelievable. It is a Ford Racing 5.0L V-8 and we are testing a new tire as well. Between the grip of the new tire and the extra horsepower we have, it is just an unbelievable car. It is a lot faster and I just cannot wait to compete with it.”

The RTR package was created in partnership with Classic Design Concepts, a Michigan company with a great reputation for high quality and stylish flair. The Mustang RTR package is available at select dealerships for the 2011 Mustang GT. A Mustang V-6 package will be available in late 2010.
