Vaughn Gittin Jr.'s RTR-X Mustang - Click above for high-res image gallery

Vaughn Gittin Jr., Ford and Need For Speed have officially pulled back the cover on the wicked RTR-X 1969 Ford Mustang. Built for both street and drift duty, this car started life as a brand-spanking new Dynacorn body. Under the hood, a Ford Racing 302R V8 spins to a heavenly 8,000 rpm, churning out 440 horsepower. Outside, the vehicle's drip rails have been shaved for a cleaner look and the windshield and rear windscreen both received the flush treatment.

Massive, one-off fender flares give this pony a little extra girth and cover a set of retina-melting green Work Meister wheels. Despite the radical look, the guys from Need For Speed say that the RTR-X is a fully functional monster and that Gittin Jr., himself, will be hopping behind the wheel for drift demos soon.

      That's one NASTY looking Mustang. BTW, I mean "nasty" in a negative way, just in case you were wondering.

      Badass

      I love the horns flush through the hood, but 440hp out of a motor that makes 412hp stock? Figured they would have been able to squeeze a little more than just 28hp out of it, especially when they went so far as to toss on that ITB setup.

        How greedy have we become...

        Complains about 440hp ....

      Not quite sure about how i feel about the Green or the Dash setup.
      But the rest of the car is bad ass.

      It has a lot of well integrated features with the massive exception of the flares which look tacky as hell. The dash is an absolute joke. Ring Brothers have nothing to fear here.

      Autoblog, turn your camera around and snap a few of the Bronco behind the Mustang. I wanna see that one too.

      Why is a drift car missing a lug nut?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Weight reduction. Less weight = more sideways?
        • 4 Years Ago
        No, I think he's right. Missing a lug nut.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's not, you're looking at the wheel at an angle.

      love it...except for the dash.

      Replace the green color on the wheels with chrome or matte black and I would drive one with pleasure.
        • 4 Years Ago
        i kind of like the green, but the deep dish tires kill it for me...
        • 4 Years Ago
        The green color coincides with Vaughn's primary sponsor, Monster Energy Drinks. So getting rid of said color would defeat the purpose.

      Never has car been so fitting for someone named Vaughn Gittin, Jr.
      • 4 Years Ago
      According to both Vaughn Gitten Jr's blogposts at Speedhunters.com and EA/Need for Speed the car uses a new 5.0L Coyote engine with a custom intake. Not a 302R block.
