World Champion Drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Mustang RTR teamed up with Need for Speed to build this one-of-a-kind, fully-functional Street, Track and Drift machine. Balancing 5.0 liters of tire-shredding American horsepower with vintage American, Japanese, European and Drift culture inspired design influences, Vaughn has incorporated state-of-the-art technology while retaining a nostalgic feel into his vision for the 69 Ford Mustangs timeless body.
The RTR-X was designed and built from the ground up to be driven hard, the RTR-X is NOT a trailer queen. While Vaughn will be the only one behind the wheel thrashing it, the entire world will be able to enjoy driving the HPI 1/10th scale RTR-X.
