Hennessey Performance Introduces 2024 Ford Mustang ‘H850’ Dark Horse

Hennessey Performance is now offering high-performance supercharged upgrades for the all-new, seventh-generation 2024 Ford S650 Mustang Dark Horse, the company announced.

Ford’s redesigned ‘S650’ Mustang Dark Horse is fitted with Ford’s naturally aspirated Gen-4 Coyote 5.0-liter V8. The automaker upgrades the Dark Horse with GT500 connecting rods and a dual throttle body to earn a factory rating of 500 horsepower. The 2024 Dark Horse may be ordered with either a Tremec 6-speed manual (3.73 gears) or with Ford’s 10-speed automatic (3.55 gearing). Regardless of transmission choice, the track-focused Mustang features upgraded multi-piston Brembo performance brakes on both axles, the manufacturer said.

Hennessey’s technicians have added to the Mustang’s V8 with a high-performance supercharger and a high-flow air induction system, upgraded fuel injectors, and a new fuel pump. Calibrated with an HPE Engine Management software upgrade, the ‘H850’ Dark Horse produces 850 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, the company said.

To complement its potent powerplant, the Hennessey ‘H850’ Ford Mustang Dark Horse is visually enhanced with a stylish carbon-fiber front splitter, carbon-fiber side skirts, and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler. Completing the exterior cosmetic enhancements are a set of forged aluminum alloy wheels. Hennessey’s embroidered head restraints are fitted to the seats, while Hennessey’s badging and script adorn the quarter panels and rear fascia. Unique ‘Heritage’ graphics are optional.

“Our supercharged Mustang builds have continually been customer favorites over the years, and Ford’s improved S650 platform will prove to be its most capable,” said John Hennessey, company founder and CEO. “Without question, our supercharged 850 horsepower Dark Horse model will be one of the most exciting and powerful muscle cars on the road — sure to turn heads with its distinctive supercharger wail and exhaust note.”
