The 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse is a brand new, range-topping variant for the all-new S650 generation pony car, one that offers a bit more performance than the standard GT, along with a host of unique interior and exterior touches as well. In recent days, Ford has revealed quite a bit of information about the new Dark Horse, showing off its many unique interior features, its special Blue Ember paint, and the variety of stripe options that one can add. Now, we’re getting our first look at the carbon fiber wheels that 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse owners can opt for, too.
The Dark Horse’s optional carbon fiber wheels measure 19×10.5 inches up front and 19×11 in the rear, and weight 37 percent – or around 20 pounds – less than the standard units. The lightweight rollers are produced by Carbon Revolution, which also made the carbon fiber wheels for the S550-generation Shelby GT350 and GT500, and they’ve already undergone 200+ environmental and structural environment tests, though FoMoCo is still reportedly dialing them in ahead of the start of production.
These unique five-spoke units will only be available as part of the optional Handling Package, which retails for $4,500, while the carbon fiber wheels add another $8,495 to that tally – on top of the Dark Horse’s MSRP of $57,970. Previously, opting for the Carbon Fiber Track Pack that included carbon fiber wheels and various other goodies on the GT500 cost a whopping $18,500, however – after all, carbon fiber isn’t cheap.
For that money, buyers get an enhanced version of the naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote engine that cranks out 500 horsepower and 418 pound-feet of torque, along with an array of performance upgrades including a six-speed Tremec manual transmission, unique chassis tuning, larger rear sway bars, heavy-duty front shocks, 19-inch Brembo front six-piston brakes with 13.9-inch rotors, a strut tower brace and K-brace, a Torsen rear differential, MagneRide, and Pirelli P-Zero tires.

looks like CRAP!!
What you mean to say is ‘they are not your favorite choice’.
Otherwise, you sound like CRAP!
I like that Ford is creating a buzz around this car at a time when others have given up or quit. Real Ford fans and loyalists understand this and appreciate Ford’s commitment to Mustang.
No, they look like crap. Fords wheels are usually some of the best, these are near the worst.
SORRY BUT THESE MAGS LOOK THEY COME FROM A HONDA CIVIC ! NOT FOR AN AMERICAN SPORTS CAR ……CHEAP LOOKING FOR A MUSTANG !
Leon REALLY DOESNT WANT YOU TO MISS HIS POINT!
For those that don’t care for the integrity and light weight of carbon wheels, you can focus on styling alone & go for alloy wheels for less $$.
What are you talking about, the Gt350 and Gt500 carbon fiber wheels look great, these are hideous.
This has too be one of those twisted jokes manufacturers do to misdirect people. No way Ford is serious about these wheels. At least that’s what I hope.
Oh the ignominious torture of cheese slicer wheels.
Come on guys, it was good enough for your dad’s Taurus SHO back in the day!
