2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse Hennessey H850 Debuts

The Ford Mustang has long enjoyed some of the strongest aftermarket support of any vehicle, thanks largely to its massive enthusiast following. That tradition appears set to continue with the arrival of the S650 generation 2024 model, as both Saleen and Steeda have already announced their plans to offer fortified versions of the new pony car, with plenty more likely set to follow. That list also now includes Hennessey Performance, as the Texas-based company just revealed the 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse Hennessey H850.

As is usually the case with its vehicles, the “H850” part of the 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse Hennessey H850 refers to the car’s output, which in this case is indeed 850 horsepower, along with 650 pound-feet of torque from the fourth-gen Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote engine. Hennessey accomplishes this 350 horsepower gain over the stock version via a host of performance upgrades, including a supercharger, a high-performance induction system, larger fuel injectors, a new fuel pump, and its in-house HPE Engine Management software.

To help visually differentiate the Hennessey Dark Horse from a regular, run-of-the-mill model, the tuner gives it a variety of exterior updates as well. Those include a carbon fiber front splitter, side skirts, and rear spoiler, along with forged aluminum wheels. Those that want a bit more retro flair can opt for a set of unique heritage graphics, too. Inside the cabin, the 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse Hennessey H850 adds embroidered headrests to help remind occupants that they’re riding in something special.

The new Hennessey Dark Horse H850 is set to enter production in Q4 of 2023, though pricing hasn’t been announced just yet. Regardless, for those looking for a more powerful version of the new S650 – now that the GT500 is at least temporarily on ice – it certainly seems like a suitable choice.

    Good looking car with the hood stripes and that hockey sticks. Ford should have went this route with the Dark Horse.
