The 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse is undeniably one of the most discussed and eagerly awaited additions to the 2024 model year. This high-performance, top-of-the-line trim level represents a fresh introduction to the Mustang lineup. Powering this pony car is a robust 500-horsepower fourth-generation Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine from Ford.
Recently, the Hennessey team got their hands on a brand-new Dark Horse finished in Blue Ember. It is equipped with the optional 10-speed automatic transmission and the Dark Horse Handling Package. After completing its break-in miles, they then put it to the test to measure the car’s capabilities in its factory configuration in a top speed run where it ultimately reached 161 mph.
