A Decade of Rockin': The 750HP RTR Spec 5 Anniversary Edition Mustang is Here
It's been 10 years since Vaughn Gittin Jr. first brought first moved from the drifting circuit onto the streets with the debut of his RTR brand. And in the past decade the RTR Vehicles team has applied its magic not just to Mustangs but also a variety of Ford vehicles that are now available all over the world.
And, to commemorate this milestone, RTR Vehicles has teamed up with Lebanon Ford Performance to produce an ultra limited Mustang RTR Spec 5 Anniversary Edition—a car which looks to be the most extreme RTR production vehicle yet.
Traditionally, RTR Spec 5 Mustangs have been limited to one-off special projects mainly for motorsport use, but this time around the Spec 5 formula will make its way into the hands of a limited group of Mustang enthusiasts.
On the outside, the Spec 5 Anniversary Edition naturally gets the full RTR treatment, with each example painted in a Leadfoot Grey hue and the buyer being able to choose from one of five different accent colors.
Along with the full suite of of RTR body modifications, the Spec 5 also gets a set of widebody fender flares which sit over a set of 20"x9.5 and 20"x11 RTR Aero 7 Forged wheels with Nitto NT555 G2 tires providing an extra dose of grip.
And the grip is going to be needed because the car also comes with a Ford Performance Phase 2 supercharger kit that produces 750 horsepower and 670 pound feet of torque. The car will also get drivetrain improvements to handle the extra power and a set of RTR Tactical Performance coilovers and sway bars for improved handling.
When we say the RTR Spec 5 Anniversary Edition will be built in limited numbers, we truly mean it. Just 10 examples will be built, each one with a serialized dash plaque signed by Vaughn Gittin Jr. And while Vaughn says that after 10 years the RTR movement is "just getting started" this fast and wide specialty Mustang is the perfect vehicle to celebrate a decade of being Ready to Rock.
And, while on the subject of RTR Vehicles, don't forget to check out another one of their recent projects, a heavily upgraded Ford Ranger known as the Fun-Runner.
