The 2024 Ford Mustang Is Going Racing With These Six Models

The seventh-generation Ford Mustang won’t just bring its improved performance to the street but also to the racetrack where no less than six racing variants have been developed for various championships around the world.

The first two of these are the Mustang Dark Horse S and the Mustang Dark Horse R, both of which are based on the street-legal model. The Dark Horse S has seen all non-essential parts and trim pieces removed while an FIA-certified safety cage has been fitted alongside safety nets, a race seat with safety belts, and a quick-disconnect race steering wheel.

Ford has also equipped the Mustang Dark Horse S with a new central panel that houses various important switches and knobs. A pit speed limiter and a data and acquisition display system has also been installed. Customers wanting to hit the track with a buddy can do so with the available passenger seat.

Performance gains have been achieved through the fitment of an adjustable rear wing with added downforce, a new exhaust system, upgraded brakes, and Multimatic DSSV dampers.

Pushing performance even further is the Mustang Dark Horse R. It builds on the S but has been approved for racing series’ and has strategic seam welding, a larger fuel cell, and new Ford Performance wheels.
