What will be the high-performance edition of the herd be called?

How about Dark Horse?

The all-new Ford Mustang Dark Horse is the first new Mustang performance series in 21 years, featuring a sinister yet premium exterior and interior styling hinting at the best performance ever from its new 5.0-liter V8, projecting 500 horsepower.

Under the hood, a modified 5.0L features "a dual throttle body intake design along with modified connecting rods that were first designed to handle the 760 horses in the Mustang Shelby GT500." (Source: FordAuthority.com.)

A special team of Ford engineers, designers and experts worked for more than three years to create Mustang Dark Horse.

Will the name Mustang Dark Horse one day be as iconic as the names Mach 1 and Bullitt, the two vehicles it replaces in the Ford Mustang line-up? Ford is betting on this horse to be a winner!
