New Ford Mustang Dark Horse Special Edition Goes To The Dark Side
https://carbuzz.com/news/new-ford-mustang-dark-horse-special-edition-goes-to-the-dark-side

Earlier this month, the Blue Oval reached out to fans asking them to come up with a name for its new Mustang package. Although no official comment on the subject has been made since then, CarBuzz has exclusively uncovered the winning name: Ford Mustang Dark Horse.

While there has previously been a Saleen-built Dark Horse Mustang, the fact that the trademark was filed by Ford itself and not Saleen, suggests this will not be a tuner model, but a special edition from the Ford brand.

This new information came to light through a trademark application filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) that was filed yesterday for category 12: four-wheeled land vehicles. You can be sure that similar trademark applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will follow shortly if they have not already been filed.

The teasers Ford has provided confirm that the new accent package includes black-painted aluminum wheels, as well as badges, logos, and trim elements all in the dark and demure hue. The Mustang insignia will be satin black with tiny chrome accents. The sinister look always suits the 'Stang and is sure to be a hit with buyers, particularly if those buyers found the Ice White Editions from last year a little too bright.

Nice! Hopefully that means it'll come here to the UK as a last hurrah for the S550. Nice re-use of the Mach 1 Handling Pack wheels.......although I wonder if they'll be a less aggressive fitment.

Appears to be an M1 HP without the logos. Should see all the technical/mechanical details when the order guides are released in a few months. The paint and wheels pair very well together. Beautiful car. Black cars are absolutely gorgeous. To keep it clean though, gosh.

Yeah, have fun with keeping that one clean. Also don't forget it's just about 100 degrees in 50% of the country. I'm sure it will look awesome but anyone that's owned a black car for years knows what they're getting into with this.

Rolling down the windows and remote starting it before I hop in typically solve any aggressive hotness problems for me.

Kinda sneaky of CarBuzz to use that side pic of the Mach 1. If you click on the article that's a photo by CarBuzz and the rest are Officially by Ford. Lol

Great name for that package! I like the subtle chrome accent on the pony in that photo.

Cool package! Excited to start see this hit dealers. I love the name. I guess my name suggestion Smokey Pony Pack wasn't cool enough. LOL

I did wonder!

And, this is supposed to be renaming of the Black Accent Package, so I assume this will be available with all paint colors, not just black.

So, I wonder if this renamed package will include the upgraded 19x8.5 wheels like the previous black accent package or if it will just have a black version of the standard 18x8s? I thought that was a nice feature but haven’t seen it mentioned relative to this new version.

Touch'e. Great catch. So that makes me wonder what all is included in the package and if the car ordered has to be a specific exterior color to get it.
