Ford Mustang Dark Horse & Hypetex Advanced Coloured Materials

The 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse will be the first production car in the world to feature wheels with Hypetex coloured carbon fibre detailing.

The wheels from Carbon Revolution, which has worked alongside many luxury automotive brands, feature the signature blue carbon fibre which is in keeping with the blue accents on the car’s interior and exterior.

The five-spoke, 19-inch wheels are 37% lighter than their aluminium counterpart, weighing just 20.1 lbs each and had to pass Ford’s extensive and stringent series of over 200 structural and environmental tests.

“We’re incredibly proud to be part of the new Ford Mustang Dark Horse. Being part of such a game-changing and exciting carbon fibre product that Carbon Revolution is now able to produce at scale will help drive the lightweight revolution within the automotive industry,” said Hypetex CEO Marc Cohen. “Our coloured carbon fibre has been featured with iconic automotive brands and having Ford as our first production vehicle is a great addition to the list. We’re delighted to be able to offer the option of striking and bold coloured designs to such an amazing product that maintains the highest technical and performance properties.”

Chapel 2×2 260gsm 3K Twill material, created in collaboration with Sigmatex UK, was used within the Carbon Revolution design, whose Diamond Weave Technology ensures a perfect carbon weave is visible on the surface. Hypetex’s paint-replacement technology also retains the visible weave, allowing for a bold design without any technical compromise.
