What Is the Dark Horse Mustang?Last Updated July 29, 2020
Available in 2009 from Saleen Automotive, for a mere $89,000, was a limited-edition Mustang variant called the Dark Horse. The Dark Horse featured a 302 cu-in engine with a Speedlab SuperShaker option capable of producing 620 horsepower. Only 25-30 of the Dark Horse variant was produced.
Mistakenly called "Playboy Pink", Playmate Pink was a special-order option available on first generation coupes and convertibles. These Mustangs are highly prized by collectors as very few real Playmate Pinks have survived through the years. Authenticating a Playmate Pink Mustang can be difficult since there is no official production data available.
A special Mustang package known as the Sherrod was first introduced by Ford in 2008. Some features of the package included a billet-type upper and lower grille, side dual exhaust and a rear ducktail spoiler. The 2008 Mustang Sherrod came in a variety of colors such as Grabber Orange, Silver and White.
