Last year Air Lift Performance had the pleasure of teaming up with Vaughn Gittin Jr. on a VERY special project build, the ‘Double Down’ Mustang RTR. This wasn’t going to be your traditional show car, either. Vaughn wanted proper race-tuned handling for the track combined with the visual lows of air suspension – something only Air Lift Performance is proud to offer. The end result is the lean, mean, green machine pictured here and our good friends Speedhunters.com had the chance to drive Vaughn’s creation late last year…

‘I’ve been looking for a suspension technology that can give me great non-competitive track use, out on the road fun and not put my girlfriend off from getting in the passenger seat. Which is quite honestly what I’ve got here.’ explains Speedhunters.com Editor in chief Bryn Musselwhite. ‘Now I’m no Vaughn Gittin Jr so I’ll look forward to his take on things but from my point of view, this is ace. Imagine the ride a great set of coilovers gives you, but just when they run out of travel and things get all stiff, you don’t get the harshness attached.’

The ‘Double Down’ Mustang RTR rides on our threaded-body performance kit complete with adjustable camber plates up front to deliver exceptional handling in all driving conditions. And to control the suspension, our Autopilot V2 digital control system was cleanly integrated into the interior allowing JR to change things up at the push of a button. You can check out Bryn’s full review and road trip on the RTR by visiting the following link: http://www.speedhunters.com/2014/02/escape-las-vegasdouble-burn/#chapter-leaving-las-vegas

With several suspension styles I can honestly say that these new coil-over style air bags are the best suspension I have ever had in my GT500 hands down!
