The 2024 Ford Mustang Darkish Horse definitely did dwell up to its identify. The surprise observe-tuned variant quickly shot to the head of the industry as the most talked about 2024 model in the seventh-era Mustang lineup. Thanks to a pre-production Darkish Horse’s visual appeal at the Mustang Stampede, a expose celebration offshoot of the Detroit Vehicle Present, we get a swift glimpse at what’s underneath the hood and what it appears like.
Filmed by the YouTube account DtRockstar1, the Dark Horse’s exhaust notice appears like it arrives pre-modified with a throaty cars-and-coffee growl. RIP to any one standing guiding the quad exhaust as it fires up, unleashing a gnarly rip prior to settling into a deep, rumbly idle.
The video clip also will get a peek below the hood, which appears even meaner and a lot more purposeful than that of the present V8 cars. The twin throttle bodies double the components, cramming the bay with twice the air packing containers and resonators. There is one thing enjoyable about the symmetrical intakes feeding into the center of that beastly V8.
The past shot we see is of the Dim Horse accelerating absent. Even at much less than total throttle, the rip echoes with a critical roar.
Placing out a bare minimum of 500 horsepower, an estimated 20 far more than the GT, the Dark Horse options extra cooling for the engine and 6-velocity guide transmission. If this is in truth the last hurrah for Ford’s purely interior combustion V8, at minimum it can be heading out with a thrilling soundtrack.
