The Shelby Mustang GT350 is the go-to choice for Ford muscle car fans looking to hit the track, thanks to its big brakes, dialed-in suspension, and fantastic flat-plane-crank 526-horsepower V8. But what if we told you there was an alternative? Meet the RTR Mustang GT.

The RTR Mustang Spec 2 is a $12,000 aftermarket package for your Mustang GT that includes a whole bunch of track-ready upgrades. In addition to the sweet RTR bodykit, you get lowering springs, adjustable shocks, sway bars, an axle-back exhaust, and a set of those awesome RTR wheels wrapped in Nitto 555G2 tires.

Matt Farah of got a chance to drive Formula D driver Vaughn Gittin Jr.'s personal RTR Mustang on track, and finds it extremely balanced, with good brakes and a fantastic 5.0-liter scream. He also discovers the RTR is extremely easy to get sideways, as you'll see later in the video.

Watch for yourself and maybe reconsider paying $10,000 over sticker for that GT350 at your local dealer.
