History Edit

The Ford Mustang has been Ford's pony car since it was released in 1964. The Fastback model was the coupe version of the car sold from 1965-68, before the second facelift, when it was renamed "Sportsroof." The Ford Mustang Fastback featured in MM2 is a 1968 Fastback, built after the first facelift and famed for its appearance in the movie Bullitt . The second "generation" of Mustang was introduced in 1974, with the new mindset that speed wasn't everything. As a result, sales plummeted, until the release of the third Mustang in 1978. Although its early facelifts are often considered to be the ugliest Mustang ever, it managed to keep in profit until its discontinuation in 1993. 1994 saw the arrival of the fourth-gen Mustang, on which the Ford Mustang GT and Ford Mustang Cruiser are based. The GT model was the performance model of the era, while the Cruiser was the modified police version. The models used in MM2 are from 1999 (as they have been brought over from the original MM1, although MM2 was released in 2000) promptly after the generation's facelift in '99. The latest generation of the Mustang was introduced in 2005 (inspired by the Ford Mustang GT Concept), and facelifted in 2010. Many variants of the newest Mustang have been ported into MM2 in the form of mods.

OverviewEdit

The Ford Mustang GT is unlocked by default in both Midtown Madness 2 and the original Midtown Madness 1. As a muscle car, it competes with the Ford Mustang Fastback and the Cadillac Eldorado. Compared to the other two cars, the Mustang GT has almost identical stats. However, it has less horsepower and tighter steering, which aids in straight line driving, but makes powersliding more difficult due to its strong oversteer.

In-Game PerformanceEdit

  • Top Speed: 184 mph
  • Horsepower: 285 bhp
  • Mass: 3279 lbs
  • Durability: Medium

In-Game Description Edit

A good all-around vehicle: quick acceleration and tight handling, solid construction and a tough suspension.

ModsEdit

In HQTM Team's Classic Madness mod, the Ford Mustang GT is replaced by two separate vehicles: the Buick Special and the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL.

HQTM Team also made a 2005 Ford Mustang GT Concept as an addon car.

Trivia Edit

  • Some faces of the rear window were accidentally assigned to the low level of detail texture for the front of this car. This error was fixed in the MM2 Revisited mod.
  • This car has new engine sound effects in Midtown Madness 2. However, the older engine sound effect remains in the mm2core.ar file and can be reused by modding the game.
  • This was one of the three player-driven vehicles to be featured in the trial version of Midtown Madness 1, along with the VW New Beetle and the City Bus.
  • Chrome yellow (simply named "Yellow" in the first two MM games) was one of the colors that was available for the 1999 model year Mustang GT. In Midtown Madness 2, one of the Cadillac Eldorado's colors is named "Chrome Yellow," even though it is actually a gold color, as seen in the list of available colors on Midtown Madness 1's vehicle selection screen. In MM2 Revisited V5, a custom color for the Cadillac Eldorado is added and called "Chrome Yellow" and the default gold color is renamed "Gold." The same custom color was also added to the Cadillac Eldorado in the MM1 Revisited V3 mod for Midtown Madness 1.
