The track is his home, here is the Dark Horse, the meanest Mustang

To accompany the launch of the new Ford Mustang there is an unprecedented version: the Dark Horse. Conceived for maximum emotions on the track, this variant further enhances the V8 and the attitude of the American sports car by adding an exclusive aesthetic touch.

This special version will also be the basis of the Mustang that will take part in GT3, GT4 and NASCAR competitions in the future. Let’s see it in detail.

A V8 and lots of fun

Starting with the engine, the Dark Horse uses an enhanced version of the 5.0 V8 Coyote of the GT. At the moment, Ford has not provided precise technical data, but we can think that this model has a power very close to 500 hp.

For transmission you can choose a Tremec 6-speed manual with round titanium gear knob or the classic 10-speed automatic with steering wheel paddle.

Of course, the Dark Horse is equipped as standard with the Performance package (which includes, among other options, an optimized cooling system, the Torsen limited-slip differential and the Perfromance Electronic Parking Brake) and presents a series of extra options to devour the asphalt once on the track.

In particular, the frame has a specific calibration, the anti-roll bars are larger and the 19 ā€¯Pirelli PZero PZ4 tires are used as tires.

Made to attract attention

Along with the changes to the Mustang’s trim there are also aesthetic ones, with an overall darker look characterized by black badges and inserts. The new metallic color is available only for the Dark Horse Blue Emberwhile the brake calipers are in Notorious Blue.

In addition, in the interior of the Ford we find other black details, perforated leather seats with blue stitching and exclusive seat belts and the B&O audio system with 12 speakers.

Like the Mustang EcoBoost and GT, the Dark Horse will also be produced in the USA from summer 2023. There is no official news on a possible arrival in Europe.
