2024 Ford Mustang GT UK prices announced: yours from £55,585

The new S650 Mustang is now V8-only in the UK, the Dark Horse will cost a further £10k at £65,585

Ford Mustang Mk7 2024

Pricing and specifications for the new Ford Mustang have been revealed, with the red-hot American Muscle car retaining its ethos of lots of power and lots of value. The range will be limited to the V8 model here in the UK, with two body styles plus the upgraded Dark Horse variant which will be available right away.

A Mustang GT 5.0 V8 Coupe kicks off the pricing at £55,585, featuring the iconic ‘Coyote’ V8 engine and the choice of either a six-speed manual or ten-speed automatic transmission. It produces 439bhp and 540Nm of torque in this form, and is available in both a coupe and convertible body styles – convertible pricing is yet to be determined. 

All GTs come very well equipped right off the bat, too, with a standard-fit Performance Pack. This includes a set of 19-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, a limited-slip differential and a valved exhaust system. A notable option are adjustable Magneride dampers. 

This is in addition to the huge tech improvements offered by this new generation S650 Mustang, including a new dual-screen infotainment display, plush new interior and LED lighting front and rear. 

Topping the range is the Dark Horse, a high performance model that has been launched right alongside the base car. Priced exactly £10,000 more than the GT at £65,585, this model builds on that car’s basic powertrain package with a small increase in power to 446bhp and the same 540Nm of torque, but has far more substantial upgrades in the chassis. 

Like the GT, you can order a Dark Horse in manual or automatic form, but the manual in this case is a totally different six-speed ‘box from Tremec, giving a more direct and resilient shift feel, according to Ford

The suspension geometry is totally unique to the Dark Horse, with more negative camber on the front wheels, a lower ride height and unique calibration for the standard-fit Magneride dampers. The wheels and tyres are still 19-inches tall front and rear as per the standard GT, but are wider, and run on a set of more performance-oriented Michelin PZ4 tyres. 

As well as getting the technical changes, UK buyers will also be able to specify various design packages for the Dark Horse, including a unique Blue Ember paint finish. The interior also includes lots of unique design elements such as a titanium shift knob on models fitted with a manual transmission as well as contrast blue stitching and optional Deep Indigo blue seats as part of an Appearance Package. 

Both the GT and Dark Horse are available to order now through Ford retailers, with customer deliveries due in a few months time, just in time for summer.
