Hennessey Shows Off Its H850 Mustang Dark Horse

Upping The Ante To 850 Horsepower...

Hennessey, the renowned Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and performance vehicle creator, has unveiled its latest marvel: the supercharged ‘H850’ Mustang Dark Horse. This powerhouse, now in production at the Sealy headquarters, marks a significant leap in performance for America’s iconic pony car.

So, what sets this beast apart? Hennessey’s engineering prowess has transformed the already impressive 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse into a true force to be reckoned with. With a staggering 70 percent power upgrade, the ‘H850’ Mustang boasts a jaw-dropping 850 horsepower, alongside an impressive torque output of 650 lb.-ft.

The foundation of this extraordinary machine is the stock 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse, featuring a naturally aspirated Gen-4 Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine. Hennessey’s expert team adds a high-performance supercharger, a high-flow air induction system, upgraded fuel injectors and fuel pump, and their meticulously crafted engine management system to elevate the Mustang’s performance to unprecedented levels.

In terms of performance metrics, the results speak for themselves. While the stock Dark Horse can hit 60 mph from a standstill in 3.7 seconds, Hennessey’s ‘H850’ Mustang achieves the same feat in a blistering 3.2 seconds. Moreover, the standard Dark Horse completes the quarter-mile sprint in 12 seconds at 118.4 mph, but the H850 shaves off significant time, clocking in at just 10.9 seconds at 133 mph.

John Hennessey, the company’s visionary Founder and CEO, expresses excitement about the project: “Our supercharged H850 Mustang Dark Horse builds on Ford’s commitment to providing automotive enthusiasts with passion products like the snarling V8-powered S650 Mustang. We’re excited to unleash Hennessey’s passion for performance on America’s most iconic muscle car with all the sights, sounds, smells, and sensations that get our blood pumping!”

Moreover, Hennessey’s enhancements to the Mustang Dark Horse surpass even the forthcoming $300,000 Ford Mustang GTD, a street-legal race car boasting 800 horsepower. With the ‘H850’ upgrade, owners enjoy significant performance gains and a thrilling, supercharged V8 soundtrack that sets hearts racing.

Whether in automatic or 6-speed manual form, the ‘H850’ Mustang Dark Horse comes backed by Hennessey’s comprehensive 3-year / 36,000-mile limited warranty, providing peace of mind to owners.
