CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, MARCH 14, 2019 —
Back behind the wheel of his 900hp Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5-D that he used to drift the entirety of the Nürburgring, Vaughn Gittin Jr. checked another item off his bucket list: drifting a cloverleaf interchange.
Quote From Vaughn: “Entering a cloverleaf at maximum attack is something I’ve always wanted to do! There was nothing like the sound of the 5.0 revving out under the overpass portion as it echoed every which way! It was just the right amount of sketchiness and fun together… and quite a bit more challenging than I had expected linking it all together. And doing it at night made it that much more intense.”
Not only is this the same Ring conquering Mustang, but it shares the same DNA as the recently announced Mustang RTR Series 1 Powered by Ford Performance available at Ford dealers in April 2019.
