FORD MUSTANG RTR SPEC 5 CELEBRATES 10 YEARS OF FUN

And Only 10 Will Be Made

Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5

Ford Performance ambassador and Formula D champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. is all about having fun. So 10 years ago, he founded RTR Vehicles, and it’s quickly turned into a recognizable brand for those looking to upgrade various Ford muscle cars and trucks, such as the Mustang, the F-150, and the Ranger. To celebrate the 10-year milestone, RTR and Lebanon Ford Performance have teamed up to create an absolute fire-breather of a pony car, at a highly exclusive build volume of just ten vehicles. Introducing the Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5.

There’s no shortage of special edition aftermarket Mustangs these days, and yet this anniversary edition muscle car manages to stand out regardless. Compared to the Jack Roush Edition Mustang, or the Caroll Shelby Signature Series Mustang, the Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5 packs a visual punch that looks ready for a day at the track. It will also be the rarest, by far.

At the price of $50,000 (plus the required donor vehicle), the Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5 muscle car will primarily be colored Lead Foot Grey, accented by five colors in a manner seen in the photos. These colors include Hyper Lime, Race Red, Orange Fury, Grabber Blue, and Space White. But of course, this special Mustang is more than just an appearance package.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.

      My car is already equipped with a supercharger. I just want the color of your 10th anniversary edition with the hyper green accents and rims.
