Earlier this year, we headed out to California's Willow Springs Raceway to see Vaughn Gittin Jr. play with his 1969 RTR-X Ford Mustang for the very first time. It took just a few minutes for Gittin and his pony car to get acquainted, then it was all sideways action and tire smoke for the next couple of hours.

We weren't the only ones watching Gittin that day, though. A film crew had their lenses pointed at the RTR-X as well, getting footage for a video about the making of the car. That video, produced by Team Need for Speed, has now been released, and it provides a glimpse into what it took to build the car, along with the people behind the project. There's also some great footage of Gittin doing his thing in the RTR-X at Willow Springs. To watch the video just follow the jump and hit play.

      I'm sorry but I don't find the sound of engine rev invigorating, but rather annoying...

      Is it just me or does it rev up slow?

      I really enjoyed driving this car and winning races left and right... In Shift 2 Unleashed that is. :)

      One of the definite best classic Mustang body styles coupled with kickass state of the art mechanicals, including that wonderously vocal 302R engine. And those throttle bodies poking out through the hood? BAMF!!!
