This One-Off Mustang RTR-C Is The Ultimate Drifting Machine

One-off

A one of a kind Mustang designed by a drifting champion can be yours.

Should you fancy doing some sideways driving in a Mustang, certain Ford dealerships will happily sell you a Mustang RTR designed by drifting champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. that comes loaded with body and performance modifications to make it comparable to the tire-shredding monsters that feature in the Formula Drift World Championship. To launch the RTR brand, Vaughn Gittin Jr. and his team produced a one-off halo car featuring some striking modifications. And now it can be yours.

Called the 2010 Mustang RTR-C, the entire exterior is replaced with the same high-quality carbon-fiber components as Vaughn’s world-famous championship-winning Drift Mustang, applied with a meticulous attention to detail inspired by the prestigious Pagani Zonda. These lightweight parts help shed 500 pounds from the 2010 Ford Mustang’s curb weight, and the car was built in the same race shop as Vaughn’s competition cars. Even the 20-inch HRE wheel hoops are made of carbon fiber, at a cost of $25,000. Combine the lightweight carbon fiber with 550-horsepower on tap, and you have “one of the most fun, nimble Mustangs ever built”.

Power is sourced from a 4.6-liter 3-valve overhead-cam V8 engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The powertrain includes a Ford Racing 550-hp supercharger pack, Ford Racing 3.73 axle package and differential cover and Ford Racing Torsen limited-slip differential. Other features include K&N air filter and oil filter, 1-3/4" American Racing headers with 3" X-pipe, Bosch Platinum Plus spark plugs, Ford Racing FR500s mufflers and six-piston front/four-piston rear brakes. Suspension is fully adjustable thanks to Ford Racing anti-roll bars, TEIN damping adjustable coilovers, and a panhard link and rear control arms from Autosport Dynamics.

The interior has also been stripped out and fitted with Sparco RTR-C-edition seats and harnesses. No reserve price or estimates have been given, but don’t be surprised if this one-off monster Mustang fetches a high price when it goes under the hammer at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Connecticut next month.
