Vaughn Gittin Jr. and his Drift + Jump Ecoboost F-150

EcoboostF150

Vaughn Gittin Jr. at the 2014 SEMA Show unveiled a new project that involves 5 Recaro seats, an Ecoboost F-150, and the ability to make it drift and jump all in one package. The car was on display at the 2014 SEMA Show and also served some time in the Ford Out Front section of the show. AmericanMuscle caught some of the action and did a walk around of the F-150 that sadly is illegal per the Formula Drift rulebook. Don’t expect to see this thing in action outside of a drift demo capacity anytime soon.

2015 Mustang RTR is Here Before the SEMA Show

Vaughn Gittin Jr. just unveiled his 2015 Ford Mustang RTR to the world this morning just ahead of the 2014 SEMA Show. The new OEM package will be available at Ford dealerships so you can score a numerical serialized Mustang. The wheels and tons of parts have a slight variation for the new body style which has also hit dealerships in three packages; Ecoboost 4 Cylinder Turbo, V6, and a traditional 5.0 V8 engine. Here is what Vaughn had to say about the build;

“The all new platform has very easily allowed us to mesh RTR’s tastefully-aggressive styling and modified performance to offer our most capable, best-handling fun-to-drive RTR’s to date. If the slightly modified performance of the our Spec 1 is not enough, customers that demand more are sure to get their kicks with the up to 725 horsepower and optional fully-adjustable suspension that allows the driver to easily adjust the balance of the chassis to their liking.”

The RTR SPEC 5 is a teaser of whatever new and over the top project Vaughn has put together. Just like his F-150 he announced earlier this month we are sure this car is going to be built over the top for maximum hoon capabilities and probably make gobs of horsepower.  It will also make its first public appearance next week at the 2014 SEMA Show.

Vaughn Gittin Jr. Builds 2015 F-150 for Drifting and Jumping – Debuts at SEMA

Vaughn Gittin Jr. owns and has built about 400 Ford Mustang’s at this point in his life. The thought of building another one might just put him to sleep at this point. The car was put together with some assistance from KibbeTech who formulated a custom suspension for the new F150. How long do we have to wait until we can see a drift video with this thing?

“I love trucks, and to build one that has daily on- and off-road capabilities, as well as drifting and jumping capabilities is something I have always wanted to do,” said Vaughn. “I am really pumped to get crazy in this F-150 at SEMA this year.”
