Meet the 500kW made in SA RTR Mustang
With right hand drive Mustangs now available in South Africa and strong demand for unique and highly personalised versions of the original Pony Car, there are several exotic and quite expensive imported Mustang conversions available in South Africa.
Now RTR has engineered a mighty South African-bred Mustang pumping out more than 500kW from its Road To Race supercharged 5-litre V8 along with a performance exhaust system, modified suspension and upgraded brakes to match its newfound prowess, all wrapped up an aggressive body kit with 20” wheels shod with Pirelli P Zero high performance tyres.
The RTR is aimed at the Mustang upgrade market, Peter Lindenberg explained. “Our RTR Mustang is competitively priced to take on rival upgrades. It costs R665 000 for a RTR upgrade, which means the price of a complete car is R1 539 000, with unrivalled standard componentry. Beat that!
The 500kW (660 horsepower) supercharged 5-litre V8 RTR Mustang upgrade includes a stainless steel high performance cat back quad pipe exhaust system, performance suspension and dampers and up-spec high performance side shafts, while upgraded front and rear disc and front calliper brakes are optional.
The RTR Mustang gets 20” RTR Wheels and Pirelli P Zero Tyres, a RTR body kit comprising bonnet, front fenders, rocker panels, boot spoiler; RTR sill plates, coil covers and branded seats.
Designed, developed and built by Justin Price’s, Port Elizabeth-based Hi-tech Automotive, under the watchful eye of Peter Lindenberg, the RTR Mustang is covered by a 3 year/60 000km RTR Warranty. New RTR enhanced cars will be sold and maintained by a network of Road to Race dealerships around the country.
