Ford’s Mustang has been a staple of the American car market for over half a century, known for its aggressive design, muscular engines, and versatility. But the latest addition to the Mustang lineup, the Mustang Dark Horse, is set to shake things up with a new level of performance and refinement that’s unlike anything we’ve seen before.
What is the Mustang Dark Horse?
The Mustang Dark Horse is a new offering for the 2024 model year, designed to raise the bar in terms of performance, style, and luxury. The main idea behind dark horse is to provide a track focused model, with individual styling and tuning. In essence, it’s going to be a step up from the standard GT.
Engine and Performance
The Mustang Dark Horse is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.0-litre Coyote V-8, rated to produce 500 horsepower and 418 lb-ft of torque on premium fuel. This engine is a proven performer, delivering a smooth and thrilling ride. And with a bespoke six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic, NACA ducts, and advanced suspension systems, the Dark Horse is built for the road and track alike.
According to the reports, the Dark Horse is set to pack a punch compared to the GT model, making it a true performance machine.
Design and Style
The Mustang Dark Horse is a work of art, designed with style and refinement in mind. While we have a pretty good idea of the final look, the dark also has more sharp lines than existing Mustangs with slim LED headlights and a more aggressive grille.
There will also be a 13.2-inch touchscreen, a 12.4-inch driver’s screen, plus a retro dial pack to provide more analogue feedback.
You can also bet on there being Ricaro seats, a custom steering wheel and shifter, and an Alcantara interior.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on the price tag for the Mustang Dark Horse yet. But it’s safe to say that this bespoke pony car will command a premium price, given its advanced performance and styling.
Availability in Europe
It’s more than likely that the Dark Horse will be available in both North America and Europe. The Mustang as an umbrella term will be the centre of Ford’s motorsport endeavours, with likely entries to the 2024 Le Mans, NASCAR, North American ISMA championship, and European FIA GT3 series.
The Mustang Dark Horse is a game-changer, a new level of performance and refinement that’s unlike anything we’ve seen before. Whether you’re a Mustang fanatic or simply looking for a powerful and stylish car, the Dark Horse is sure to impress. The only thing we don’t know yet is the cost and whether it will be available in the UK, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed. Either way, the Mustang Dark Horse is a car that’s well worth keeping an eye on.
