The drifting master has unveiled his 845-horsepower Mustang ahead of the new Formula Drift season.
With the 2013 Formula Drift season less than two weeks away, Vaughn Gittin, Jr. is ready to showcase his powersliding prowess with his new 845 horsepower 2014 Ford Mustang RTR drifter that weighs in at just 1,315 kg. The livery is similar to that of Ken Block’s Fiesta, and according to the drifting maestro was inspired by old the dazzle-camo that covered WWI battle ships. His XX5 (#25) logo and flag elements have also been added as well as some of his favorite colors.
Highlights of the build specs include a carbon-fiber body, 18-inch RTR alloys, a Magnaflow five-inch racing muffler, 4-speed dog-box transmission and custom clutch, Recaro seats, and a Takata 6-point harness. Sponsored by Monster Energy and Nitto Tires, the new ride - built by Autosport Dynamics - will make its debut at the first round of the Formula Drift in Long Beach, California on April 12-13.
