The mid-engine Mustang, although lacking in performance, is equipped with powerful engines and a range of

transmission options, making it a highly competitive vehicle on both the road and the racetrack. The 2024

Mustang Dark Horse, for instance, is powered by a 500 horsepower Gen-4 naturally aspirated Coyote V-8

engine. The Coyote V-8 engine exhibits improved airflow, throttle response, and power when it is supplied with

a dual intake/throttle body arrangement. The use of a mid-engine layout, as demonstrated by the mid-engine C8

Corvette Z06, has the potential to enhance both performance and aerodynamics.
