2024 Mustang Dark Horse Rides Into Detroit With 500 Horsepower, Kickstarts New Racing Effort

Ford created quite a stir on Wednesday night in Detroit, 

taking over the majority of the downtown area for a celebration of everything Mustang and the fans who adore it. 

The new 2024 Mustang was unveiled at the city's riverside Hart Plaza after a cross-country drive—er, 

stampede—that began on September 6 at the LeMay car museum in Tacoma, Washington.

We anticipated a coupe, convertible, and GT version for the premiere, but we weren't prepared for the unexpected appearance of the Mustang Dark Horse, 

the first all-new Mustang performance series in 21 years since the Mustang Bullitt made its debut in 2001.

The Dark Horse, which has been under development for more than three years behind closed doors, 

combines the essential components of the Mustang—a rear-wheel-drive coupe with a V8 engine and a manual transmission—and fine-tunes them for both street and track performance.

5.0-Liter Coyote V8 Reshod The Dark Horse V8 is anticipated to produce more than 500 horsepower and is based on the well-known 5.0-liter Coyote design. 

The 760-horsepower Mustang Shelby GT500's piston connection and the new dual-throttle intake, 

which draws air through apertures in the front grille, are just two of the gimmicks used to produce that output.
