This black pony started taking shape in June, when Vaughn Gittin Jr. teamed up with Need for Speed to create the 1969 Mustang RTR-X. The car set to make its debut on the Las Vegas Convention’s floor will also be featured in a future Need for Speed game.
The car is based on the iconic 1969 Dynacorn body, with a myriad of modern technologies and performance modifications being made. The powerplant has been updated to Ford’s new 5.0-liter V8 (that is present on the current Mustang GT) with an aftermaket Kinsley Individual Throttle Body injection system and a MoTeC M800 ECU remap. A performance Ford Racing Boss 302 R1 transmission with six speeds has been mated to the engine.
The paint job is a deep shade of black with striking green pinstripes. The beautiful black wheels with a lime-green lip will be wrapped in Falken RT615-K tires. If the computer rendering is anything to go by, the interior with its black leather and Alcantara should be something to behold as well. We can also make out that the old analog clocks have been replaced with a digital reading.
"Not only am I overly-excited to drive the RTR-X, but I am equally-excited for the entire world to be able to get behind the wheel of the RTR-X virtually in upcoming Need for Speed video games," Vaughn Gittin Jr. said and we wholeheartedly agree with him.
