Hennessey Confirms 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse H850 Output

Hennessey Performance has been churning out higher-performance versions of various Blue Oval vehicles for some time now, and that list includes, of course, the Ford Mustang. Following the debut of the all-new S650 generation pony car last year, the Texas-based company revealed the 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse H850, which was targeted to produce 850 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque from its fortified fourth-gen 5.0L V8 Coyote engine. Now, Hennessey has confirmed this new model’s output via some dyno testing.

Following that process, the tuner did indeed achieve its targets of 850 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, which is a pretty massive gain over the stock ratings of 500 horsepower and 480 pound-feet. Hennessey accomplished this by adding a supercharger, high-flow air induction system, bigger fuel injectors, and an upgraded fuel management system to the stock Coyote. This is also good enough to propel the Dark Horse from 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and down the quarter-mile in 10.9 clicks, versus the stock figures of 3.7 and 12 seconds, respectively.

In addition to this power boost, the Dark Horse H850 features a carbon fiber front splitter, side skirts, and rear spoiler, along with forged aluminum wheels, plus embroidered headrests inside the cabin. Those that want a bit more retro flair can opt for a set of unique heritage graphics, too. Production of the 2024 Hennessey Ford Mustang Dark Horse H850 is already underway, and customers interesting in purchasing one can do so via the tuner or authorized Ford dealers.

Of course, Hennessey isn’t the only outfit churning out higher-performance versions of the S650 Mustang, either. Aside from Shelby American and its new Super Snake, Saleen recently debuted the 302 White Label and Black Label, while Steeda is using its own “Silver Bullet 2.0” as a test bed for future variants, too.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    The 0-60 times of the stock Dark Horse, and the H-850 models that you listed,; 3.2 for both the stock model, and the H-850, are the same, but, it seems that the stock model should have a slower 0-60 time, with 350 less horse power, than the H-850.

    Probably a Type-O on their part!!
