The much anticipated debut of the 2015 Mustang RTR has finally come; the next generation of RTR Mustang is here on the brand new S550 chassis! Back at the 2014 AmericanMuscle Car Show, the 2015 Mustang RTR was officially revealed to the public and now we are finally getting to see the car in person and learn about what a beast this new RTR Mustang is. Last week we got a small glimpse of what it has to offer with a spy video captured of the 2015 Mustang RTR drifting. This week, tune into the blog on 11/6/2014 for full video of these monsters laying down rubber!
With many claiming the 2015 Mustang to be the best Mustang yet, it seems the 2015 RTR is the best Mustang RTR to date. The 2015 Mustang RTR is offered in two different packages, Spec 1 and Spec 2, which offer completely different driving experiences. Spec 1 focuses on the styling of the Mustang while Spec 2 focuses on styling and performance.
2015 RTR Spec I
A 2015 Mustang RTR Spec 1 offers a RTR chin spoiler, RTR rear spoiler, RTR rear diffuser with side splitters, RTR rocker splitter, RTR upper grill with integrated lighting, and RTR lower grill.
2015 RTR Spec II
The Spec 2 RTR benefits from the Spec 1 upgrades as wells as the adjustable dampers, adjustable sway bars, lowering springs, RTR exclusive exhaust system by Magnaflow, RTR custom tuning, RTR cold air intake, and optional supercharger. With the supercharger, Spec II’s horsepower would jump up to 725 RWHP.
“Ford has really done an amazing job with the new 2015 Ford Mustang,” says Vaughn Gittin Jr. “The all new platform has very easily allowed us to mesh RTR’s tastefully-aggressive styling and modified performance to offer our most capable, best-handling fun-to-drive RTR’s to date. If the slightly modified performance of the our Spec 1 is not enough, customers that demand more are sure to get their kicks with the up to 725 horsepower and optional fully-adjustable suspension that allows the driver to easily adjust the balance of the chassis to their liking. We feel we have developed very diverse and refined offerings, which was our number one goal to support the global release of the 2015 Ford Mustang and ensure our customers keep smiling and having fun behind the wheel of his or her RTR.”
