Bosch Iridium Edition Mustang RTR Sweepstakes Winner

Mustang RTR and Bosch have announced that James Casity Sr. from Stockton, California, won the one-of-a-kind 2011 Ford Mustang RTR Grand Prize in the exciting Bosch Iridium Edition Mustang RTR Sweepstakes. 2010 Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. presented Casity with the Mustang in a ceremony at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas.

“It was very flattering that Bosch, an innovative forward-thinking industry leader that has been in business for over 125 years, chose RTR to build the car that represents their very powerful new Iridium Spark plugs,” said Vaughn. “The entire RTR team has been very excited about this project since it started. The opportunity to build a one-of-a-kind Ford Mustang RTR to giveaway to a lucky winner is something we were pumped to make happen. The ear-to-ear smile on James’ face when I handed him the keys of his Bosch Iridium Edition Mustang RTR made all the hard work well worth it.”

Vaughn presented the Mustang to Casity at the Bosch exhibit Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 2, 2011. Custom-built by Gittin and the RTR team at Classic Design Concepts, the Iridium Edition Mustang RTR is not only a new-generation of Ford Mustang, but is powered by a new-generation of Bosch Iridium spark plugs as well.

The Bosch Iridium Edition Mustang RTR is a one-of-a-kind 2011 Ford Mustang designed by Vaughn Gittin Jr., who is one of the best-known and most successful competitors in the Formula Drift Championship. After competing in motocross as a teen, he started his drifting career in 2004, placed first in the D1 Grand Prix America versus Japan competition the following year, won the 2007 World Championship and continued his successes, ultimately winning the 2010 Formula Drift Championship.

“We’re pleased to have these new spark plugs powering Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s drifting cars, and excited to have Vaughn give away the Iridium Edition Mustang RTR to the sweepstakes winner in our booth at AAPEX this year,” said Pam Krebs, Director of Advertising and Sales Promotion for Bosch.

“Drifting is a sport that places extreme demands on engines in a very short period of time, so spark plugs and other engine components must be rugged enough to withstand such abuse, and at the same time, be able to provide tens of thousands of miles of everyday use in normal street cars. Our new Bosch Iridium spark plugs are up to both tasks,” added Krebs.

The one-off Bosch Iridium Mustang RTR, valued at $50,000, includes the Mustang RTR appearance and performance package consisting of the RTR front splitter, rocker splitters, RTR rear diffuser and stamped aluminum rear spoiler, Ford Racing shocks, Ford Racing calibration, Ford Racing mufflers, and cross-drilled/slotted rotors.

Vaughn uses Bosch spark plugs, fuel injectors, alternators, and even wiper blades on his competition cars as well as the custom cars he designs and builds. So he was a natural choice to develop and oversee production of the Bosch Iridium Edition Mustang RTR, built off the extraordinary Mustang RTR platform that is available at select Ford dealers.

The one-of-a-kind Bosch Iridium Edition Mustang RTR also includes custom HRE P40S wheels wrapped in Falken Tires, a carbon fiber roof, hood and deck lid, custom BASF paint, custom one-off badging inside and out and, of course, Bosch Iridium spark plugs which offer the fire power needed to keep the tires lit up!

“A huge thanks to all of our partners,” finalized Vaughn, “Ford, Classic Design Concepts, HRE Wheels, Falken Tire, BASF, Ford Racing, and of course, Bosch Autoparts, whom made this project possible; it was a true team effort and we at RTR couldn’t be happier with the results!”
