Available to All, Not for Everyone.
Vaughn Gittin Jr
Better known as JR, Vaughn built his first Ford Mustang competition racecar in 2006 and kicked off a career in Formula Drift, Ultra4 Racing, and NASCAR that would lead to winning Formula D Championships in 2010 and 2020. It was also the beginning of an idea that would become RTR Vehicles.
Ready to Rock
Vaughn realized an entire car culture existed inside the Mustang community, and he had found himself right in the middle of it. He saw that enthusiasts like him wanted a more personalized touch for their vehicles but there were limited styling options available, and none that met his vision for what Mustang could be. That's when the vision for RTR was born.
RTR x Ford® Motor Company
The very first Mustang RTR was released to the public in 2009 and it quickly took off. Soon after, an official alignment between RTR and Ford Motor Company was announced, pushing RTR beyond a typical aftermarket company and into offering customizations within approved Ford dealerships around the world.
RTR: A Way Of Life
Being “Ready to Rock” is something that Vaughn has said since he was a teenager. It’s a mindset—a way of life—to be ready for anything. This is in the DNA of every RTR vehicle built to drift, drag, cruise, off road, or run the track with RTR’s signature, modern, aggressive styling.
Commitment to Quality
The world has learned RTR manufactures to the highest OEM standards. Our parts are tested and validated by professional drivers in extreme & motorsport conditions. That hands-on experience translates into versatile total performance systems—all of our products are designed and engineered to work together, instead of just as one-off parts.
Available to All
We live by the phrase "Available to All, Not for Everyone" and we mean it. The team at RTR designs and builds very special cars for very special people. We know that not everyone is meant to be an RTR owner—and that's exactly the point.
Not For Everyone
We are passionate, and we enjoy the raw emotion that can be experienced by driving a great vehicle. And since you're reading this, you're probably cut from the same cloth. If you’ve been chasing that feeling of passion and emotional connection with the vehicles you drive, you are definitely one of us.
