Team Need for Speed RTR-X Mustang - Click above for high-res image gallery

Vaughn Gittin Jr. is mostly known for his ability to pilot Ford Mustangs in a sideways – he currently leads the points race in the 2010 Formula Drift season – but over the last year the Maryland native has also been busy launching his own car brand, RTR, beginning with last year's show at SEMA with the debut of the RTR-C Mustang.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Gittin will be following up the RTR-C with perhaps something even more impressive. In a collaboration with Team Need for Speed, the drifter/car builder will unveil another Mustang at the 2010 SEMA show dubbed the RTR-X. Based on a 1969 Mustang using a Dynacorn replacement body shell, the RTR-X will feature the 5.0-liter V8 from the 2011 Mustang GT and a one-off sub-frame from Art Morrison. You can follow the progress of the build until its debut at SEMA in November and even vote on the car's livery over at SpeedHunters. Hit up the gallery below to see Gittin's upcoming creation in more detail.

      Why all the dislike of the individual throttle bodies? It increases throttle response and can cause significant hp gains after tuning.

        Well nobody said it was going to be easy..But man this is a high budget build by people working in professional motorsports. The cost of aftermarket ITB setups alone keep it out of the hands of most enthusiasts, and that's just for inline-4 engines !

        I say, if it's good enough for Ferrari, it's good enough for me (to support it).

      My long term dream is a classic light mustang that rides like a new one and comes with the 5 liter engine.

      Anyone can take a bunch of money, throw it at a car and make a "car company" out of it.

      Like the exterior of the X 'stang. It should be really light, too, but probably a 6-figure pricetag like the 'C'.

      Looks neat. I really with the new Mustang didn't have such a gargantuan ass, and it tapered like this instead.

      Love the fender flares - but velocity stacks?! really?!

      Wow, that looks really nice. It looks both smaller, sportier, and lighter at the same time (would be sweet if Ford used some of these design cues for the next Mustang). The tail lights don't really fit though... needs to be concave and fit better w/the rest of the rear.

      Looks like something Burt Reynolds would drive.
