Optionally, you can order the Dark Horse Appearance Package which includes Recaro seats with bright indigo blue upholstery and a black suede center insert. These are the sheets shown in the photos. The seats have perforations with blue accents visible underneath, and finally Ford throws in matching blue seat belts.
The dark horse interior design theme is blue. The interior’s dominant color is mostly black, but Ford used blue accents throughout to distinguish it from other Mustang models. The flat-bottom steering wheel has Bright Indigo Blue stitching. The same blue stitching is found on the instrument panel, door panels, seats, shift gate and center console. The shift knob for the 6-speed manual transmission is a unique titanium knob with an anodized blue finish. Ford says it’s hollow so it doesn’t get hot in warm weather. If a 10-speed automatic is selected, the paddles are anodized silver finish.
Outside of the blue theme, each Dark Horse’s bezel and vents sport a dark metallic sheen rather than the bright silver trim on other Mustangs. Different textures are used on the instrument panel and door panels to create a carbon fiber look. As a finishing touch, each Dark Horse is given an instrument panel plaque featuring his VIN number for the vehicle.
Moving on to the exterior, Ford provided some details about the Stripe package available on the Dark Horse. You can choose either vinyl or painted stripes, but painted stripes certainly cost a lot more.Ford added painted stripes to the last-gen Shelby GT500, instead of vinyl stripes. We offered an additional $10,000 to the cost. Don’t be surprised if Dark Horse stripes cost a similar amount, Ford uses a special process that isn’t available on other Mustangs in his trim (at least for now) to make them, unless you check this box. is painted by hand.
The final point to point out is that Ford provided some overhead shots of Dark Horse in a different paint color than the blue ember paint job used in the original reveal. The red dark horse has a Ford vinyl stripe and the white dark horse has a painted stripe.
