If you want to take delivery of one, you can pick one up at one of the many Mustang RTR dealers across the country.

“For the past couple years we have really focused on building relationships with the best dealers out there,” Vaughn said. “The dealers we have partnered with so far have been very happy with the RTR program we offer and the overall reception Mustang RTR’s receive in their dealerships. Excitement is very high around this next-generation Ford Mustang.”

Of course if you don’t buy a serialized Mustang RTR, that doesn’t mean you can’t add some or all of the slideways, Ready To Rock panache to your S550. Starting in January 2015 the Mustang RTR products will be available for purchase.

“RTR’s success and reception has been pretty incredible, My dream with RTR was to offer a turnkey Mustang that came from the dealer with unique fresh aggressive looks and could easily dialed to enjoy all the things I enjoy behind the wheel, railing turns, drifting, blasting some straightaways all while having a nice ride for a daily driver and general cruising,” Vaughn told us. “I also wanted to offer high-quality, functional performance and appearance parts that offered a fresh take on styling in the Mustang world in addition to the aftermarket.”
