I'm curious to ask this question but what dows the "GTX" stand for? I know Ford Mustang GT means Gran Turismo but GTX stand for Nvidia Graphics card. How did Rockstar comes up with this idea?

There were Plymouths GTX back in the '60s and '70s and the name very likely stands for either Grand Tourer X, or Gran Turismo X in similar way like Buick had GSX and GNX.

Then you've lived a very sheltered life if you think Nvidia are the only ones to use that.

The GTX is a play on the Zero to 60 Designs Ford Mustang GTT (Gran Turismo Tribute) using an acronym that was used on many old Plymouth muscle cars of the '60s. GTX stands for Grand Tourer X. Indicating the car is designed for long drives.

Well they don't have a pony car class, so muscle is the closest.

@Yinepi, no it isn't. It's real Capital Concepts 2017 Mustang GTX concept car, that is what the Dominator GTX is based on.

You can trust me 100%, 100% of the time, but just in case:
