Ford built one just for the enthusiasts in 2012. They resurrected the Ford Mustang Boss 302 name for a special edition that is worthy of the legend. With extra power from the V8, exclusive graphics & features, track mode, an exceptionally low 21,265 miles, and limited production figures, we all know this speedy pony is also a very desirable future classic.
A late model Mustang is always a desirable choice, but this one has a lot more attitude that we all love. Just like the original, this Boss package made for a meaner Mustang. You see it in places like the deep chin spoiler, rear diffuser, blacked out rear panel, and dark 19-inch alloys. Plus, the Boss 302 striping package inspired by Larry Shinoda's original design is worth the price of admission all on its own. The factory Kona Blue paint still brilliantly glows like a sapphire, which points to the low mileage and this truly being treated like the Boss.
Inside, the synthetic suede steering wheel and machine-turned aluminum trim are more great distinctions from the GTs out there. But Boss fans will instantly recognize one upgrade that means a lot. This car carries the optional Recaro seats, which are supremely comfortable and supportive. Plus, there are built-in provisions for race harnesses behind the Boss 302 logo stitched into the backs. And part of this competition-ready package also includes the TracKey – a separate red fob that signals the ECU to reconfigure the engine and operations for optimal performance. Beyond these special features, you're also looking at a loaded Mustang. That means you get a ton of great luxuries, such as air conditioning, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, power steering and a premium AM/FM/CD/XM stereo that's loud and crisp enough to still here your favorite songs even at the racetrack. A modern classic also means modern safety features such as dual front airbags, side air bags, and ABS.
What truly makes this car the Boss is the extra 32 horsepower (444 hp total) that Ford got out of its famous fuel-injected 302 V8. But that's only the tip of the iceberg. There's a lot of expensive custom work in the engine, including CNC porting, bigger cams, and race-spec bearings for high-RPM use. A proper collectable like this has probably never seen the redline, but it's nice to know it's got the hardware to do it without issue. It looks great in the engine bay with the large bracer bar, Boss 302 housing, and a commemorative plaque on top identifying this as car #97 (less than 3,600 standard Boss 302s were made for North America in 2012.) The idle for this enhanced V8 is surprisingly quiet, just like a modern DOHC motor should. But once you unleash its full potential, the quad exhaust has been specially formed with hidden side exhaust to create is a true symphony of power. You are in complete control over the sound and the fury thanks to a slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission with well-chosen ratios. And the optional package that added the Recaros and TracKey also added a Torsen limited-slip rear end. The Boss 302 package also beefed up the suspension of these Mustangs, but this one goes even further. There's now the addition of adjustable shocks/struts, Hotchkis frame connectors, pan-hard bars, and sway bars all make this a Mustang that can run circle around even other Bosses (lovers of originality will be happy to know the factory components also come with the sale.) This total power and handling package is finished off with Brembo four-piston four-wheel disc brakes and the grip of BF Goodrich gForce tires.
