    The 2018 Mustang RTR is Here

    CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, OCTOBER 26, 2017 — After extensive testing and design
    development, the new 2018 Ford Mustang RTR focuses on style, drivability,
    performance and aerodynamic styling, making it the most dynamic, powerful and
    expressive Mustang RTR yet. The 2018 Mustang RTR will be available soon through
    select Ford Dealers globally, offering turnkey packages with over 700 horsepower.

    “The new 2018 Ford Mustang is the most technologically advanced and arguably the
    best Mustang ever on all fronts,” RTR creator Vaughn Gittin Jr. said. “It’s amazing
    what Ford has been able to accomplish with the 2018 Mustang in terms of performance
    and overall refinement, but the RTR team and I just couldn’t leave it alone! With
    our unique styling across the entire RTR lineup, available multi-purpose adjustable
    suspension components and power upgrades that our customers have grown to love and
    use to push their RTRs to the limit! I am confident, and many will agree, that this
    is one of the most fun Ford Mustangs ever to hit the street!”

    As in years past, the 2018 RTR will be offering a Spec 1, Spec 2 and Spec 3 version
    of the Ford Mustang. Every RTR includes the RTR Design Package, signature lighting
    and graphics kit, and dash plaque signed by Vaughn Gittin Jr. New aerodynamic
    styling such as the front bumper turning vanes and the forged Aero 7 wheels (not
    shown) offer aggressive styling and purposeful additions to the Ford Mustang.

    The 2018 Mustang RTR, will debut at SEMA in the Ford display. RTR’s new production
    offerings, optional equipment, pricing, order details and exact horsepower figures
    will be announced soon.

    Joining the RTR Vehicle lineup is the 2018 Ford F-150 RTR Muscle Truck, inspired by
    the incredibly popular Ultimate Fun-Haver F-150, will also be revealed at the Ford
    SEMA display. More details coming soon.

    I'm not a fan of the decal on the side or the hood, but I like the rest of it.

    The front end is a mess, very busy and I'm not a fan of the decal either. Sometimes less is more.

    The decal on the hood looks way out of place. The wheels are sweet but I would only use those on s197s and not s550s (since they are Trinity PP wheel lookalikes).

    Not bad though.

    You can typically get pretty custom with an RTR.

    Yeah, I love the look of the car minus the stripe on it. I'll be more than happy to take one off their hands for free to drive it around town to show it off. Some good old grass roots advertising. =)

    I think I'd rather GT350 with a Whipple. This RTR falls short. I'm having trouble liking anything about it.

    Those wheels look like a pita to clean.

    Lose the stripes and it would be sharp.

    Like others have said, lose the decals and I like, especially the one on the hood.
    The rear spoiler would look good in color to match the car as well.

    No hood decal, maybe keep the side strip, different front splitter and change the rocker panel, they look just like stock.

    The only thing I'd change is the hood stripe decal. Needs something "lesser". Other than that, I like it a lot.
