We purchased this 2012 Boss in Phoenix, AZ. following an hour long show on Velocity telling the back story of this build. Pioneered by Carroll Shelby, Parnelli Jones, and Ford Racing, the 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca was designed to capture today's state of the art technology - from suspension, to braking, and power. If this wasn't enough to have me racing to buy the car, Car and Driver's review puts some icing on this cake ...
"Race Car with a License Plate? In its quest to turn the Boss 302 into what it calls “a race car with a license plate,” Ford upgraded the GT’s suspension with stiffer springs and bushings, adjustable shocks, and a thicker rear anti-roll bar. Ride height drops 11 mm up front and 1 in the rear. As with the original Boss 302, shock adjustment is done manually—in this case via a screw atop each shock tower—among five stiffness settings... the 2012 Mustang Boss 302 is the “quickest, best-handling straight-production Mustang ever offered by Ford.”
My personal taste prefered the Ingot Silver with red accent color scheme (one of 151) for the production run, and I did add the only option available - a cover. All race parts still in original boxes. The original Red Wheels measure 19 by 9 inches in front and 19 by 9.5 in back; wrapped by 255/40 front and 285/35 rear Pirelli PZeros. (These wheels and tires were pulled and replaced with Toyo's Proxes T1 Sport to ensure the stock wheels would be in new condition.) Ford’s performance claims for the 2012 Boss 302 include cornering capability in excess of 1.0 g, shorter stopping distances than provided by the GT—even with its available brake upgrade—and a 155-mph top speed. Our only modification was adding a harness kit to securee a 5-point belt. [We replaced the wheels with Enkei Racing PF01's fitted with Tooyo Proxes T1 Sport- 2785/40ZR18.]
