A bunch
I’ve never understood these comparisons.
For me it’s always a big “who cares”. Apples & oranges.
More like golden delicious vs Fuji, and the correct answer is Fuji. I’m willing to die on that hill !!!

Whew she still a big girl ever at those number. A DH would need to make 571 at the crank to accelerate the same weight.

I agree, and firmly believe that Ford missed the mark with the 24. They should have created a much better chassis... but I'm sure the bean counters were not going to let that happen.

I see a couple conflicting numbers on the internet for dark horse, but these seem pretty reliable since I believe they weigh the car at the time of testing (but I may be wrong.)

Holy cow, I thought my Mach 1 was heavy but the DH is 130 lbs more according to C/D?! Sheesh.

To be fair, I’ve not seen Ford call it the best NA Mustang. Highest performing NA 5.0L Mustang from factory, yes I’ve seen that. And I think the jury is still out on that based on some of the results that are out there.

Best NA Mustang from factory is still reserved for the S550 350/350R. At least in my opinion.

Was the driver of the Dark Horse wearing an Affliction T-shirt while vaping cherry smoke? That's good for an extra 50 hp.

DH auto is 3997 curb.
350R is 3653 I believe (or about 3700 with electronics package) at the curb + 30hp more and manual.

350lbs + 30hp is significant, though the missed shift would have made it closer. That is the biggest factor preventing this from being a good benchmark.

Dark Horse R is a gutted, non-retail model and costs nearly 150k. An apples to apples test is the DH vs. the Mach 1 which it replaces.

The smartest thing to do would be to get a 10A Mach1 as that's probably as close to an apples to apples comparison you could get, alternatively maybe a roll race between 10A GT's could function as well but I think the DH vs Mach1 is probably the more interesting comparison.

Alternatively seeing them run the road course with the same driver and on the same tire would be more interesting.
They just released a 2024 Mustang GT vs DH with the A10.

Here's this. Any guesses on how much it cost to get it there.
Hint: 1/2 of what I paid for my 17 GT when I bought it new.
Also, they ain't telling you the WHOLE story.

It only needs a converter, LTH and drag setup.

nbd, not sure what a gen3 runs stock with those 3 mods.

Someone should check his garage - high likelihood he's got an '03-'04 Cobra to match a cool caricature online nickname

Anyone who takes their GT350R for a straight line race is doing it all wrong. It’s gearing and engine was setup for a roadcourse (lap times).
