Page 2 and 3 of the 1980 Ford Mustang promotional booklet shows a Bright Bittersweet orange Mustang 2-door coupe with white vinyl roof and forged metric aluminum wheels. The text starts, Ride a New Breed of Mustang, a sports car for the 80's. This year we're turning loose our second herd of New Breed Mustangs in an exciting line of models designed with Better Ideas for the 80's.
1980 was the second year of the new Fox body line.
A Medium Gray 3-door 4-cylinder turbo hatchback is shown on this page of the 1980 Ford Mustang promotional booklet next to a Polar White turbo hatchback with accent tape stripe option. The 140 cubic inch (2.3 liter), 2-barrel, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine was an option which was rated at 150hp (at 4800 rpm) and 165ft-lb max torque (at 3600rpm). This page says, The 2.3 liter turbocharged engine has acceleration comparable to some other cars with V-8 engines. Plenty of reserve power for passing or freeway merging. The turbocharger is basically an air compressor driven by recycled exhaust gases. At your command, it pressurizes atmospheric air to increase the velocity of the fuel/air mixture. This simple principle produces great acceleration.
This page of the 1980 Ford Mustang promotional booklet shows the coupe body style featuring a tu-tone Light Medium Blue over black, sport optioned version.

The 1980 Ford Mustang promotional booklet page showing the Cobra hatchback model says, Bold new expression of our sports car for the 80's. Mustang 3-door Cobra strikes a new image of sportiness in 1980. New styling features - Indy 500 Pace Car front end with integral spoiler and dual fog lamps, unique rear-opening hood scoop (non-functional), rear deck spoiler, exclusive tap stripe treatment. Plus blackout greenhouse moldings (moldings around all the windows), remote control styled mirrors, black lower Tu-Tone paint. These hint at what Cobra is under its gleaming hood. Turbocharged! The 2.3 liter turbo engine comes standard on Cobra. At first you won't believe you're driving on four cylinders as the turbo kicks in, delivering acceleration comparable to some other cars with V-8 engines. Acceleration you can use for passing or freeway merging... Also included on Cobra is a special suspension system with Michelin TRX tires mounted on 390 mm (15.3 in.) forged metric aluminum wheels. We call Cobra the boldest of the Mustang breed. For reasons that speak well for themselves.
