This description is taken from the NTSC version of Gran Turismo 2:
Even though crisp, "New Edge"-influenced styling has freshened the looks, the operative word for the 1999 Mustang is "power", with increases for all models. And the chassis and suspension have been massaged for lower noise levels, greater comfort, and, most importantly, improved handling. Although the base 3.8-liter V6 gets a 40-horsepower boost, the GT's 4.6-liter SOHC V8 hasn't been forgotten. It's now stronger, with 260 BHP at 5,250 rpm and 300 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. That's 35 more ponies and 10 lb-ft more torque, thanks to the new cams, larger valves, and modifications to the intake manifold and combustion chambers. Better breathing equals more power. The 35 extra horsepower is appropriate, as 1999 is the Mustang's 35th anniversary year. To commemorate, all Mustangs built during the model year get special badging. Although the MacPherson strut front, solid axle rear suspension is unchanged in basic design, increased rear travel and a wider rear track improve comfort and handling. If not the quickest, fastest Mustang ever built, the 1999 GT is close, and may be the most civilized.

- This car is one of the three vehicles that are playable through normal means in the Demo versions of Gran Turismo 2, alongside the Fiat Coupe 2.0 20V Turbo and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V GSR '98.
- Interestingly, when this car is viewed in the dealership, it will be displayed as having 260 BHP. However, when this car is purchased, its power will drop to 207 BHP, closer to a 1997 model.
- This bug occurs on both the 1998 and 1999 car as the engine data was directly copied from one to the other, instead of creating a separate one.
