Series 1 Ford Mustang RTR turns on the heat
It’s a limited run, so you’ll have to move quickly if you want one
Ford Performance has joined efforts with RTR to create a smoking hot conversion kit that works both on the Mustang GT and its EcoBoost peer.
Ford’s press release says only 500 Series 1 Mustang RTR kits are planned. Local dealers will handle the installation works as of early 2019, but let’s take a closer look at what the pack has to offer.
As you’d think, the upgrades are mostly of aesthetic ilk complemented by a couple of mechanical tweaks as well. For example, the Ford Performance-provided suspension kit features adjustable sway bars (works on both passive and MagneRide suspension setups) that adapt to various driving scenarios: track, winding roads or drag racing.
Now, for the visual effect, Ford says the kit brings staggered wheels and new tires (19 x 9.5-inch at the front, 19 x 10-inch at the rear). The Performance Pack 1 spoiler gets an RTR gurney flap, while the grille, body aero bits and graphics are also provided by RTR.
RTR’s influence is also visible when it comes to the fender badges, floor mats, shift knob and puddle lamps.
Keep in mind that the Series 1 Mustang RTR conversion can be had on any Mustang EcoBoost Performance Package 1 or Mustang GT Performance Package 1 model and it comes with a Ford factory limited warranty scheme. Those eligible can request for Ford Credit financing.
