2012 Mustang Boss 302

2012 Mustang Boss 302

Before you say “Zomg not ANOTHER special edition Mustang!?” wait. Did you see that this is a BOSS 302?  A frickin Boss.  And according to Mustang engineer Dave Pericak,

We were either going to do it right or not do it at all – no one on the team was going to let Boss become a sticker and wheel package.

Allright, so the guy in charge can talk a good game.  But did he deliver.

Hell. Yes.

Under the hood is a 440 HP 5.0 Liter V8.  That’s 28 extra ponies from the GT, thanks to more aggressive camshafts and a shiny new intake.  Add an upgraded clutch and a short throw shifter, and there’s no doubt the 2012 Boss will be a beast in a straight line.

But that’s not all.

No, that would be boring, and this car is not.  How about upgraded brakes, a magic adjustable suspension, and the reported ability to top 1.0g of lateral acceleration.  That’s right – it’s faster, stops better, and handles better than the already fantastic Mustang GT.

Wait, what’s that? Quad exhaust?

Sure you say, lots of cars have quad exhaust.  And you would be right.  But how many have two exits in the rear, and two on the side? None that I can think of, which makes the Boss even more special.  Something about getting more of that V8 burble closer to the driver gets my blood pumping.

The visual treatment speaks for itself – the 2012 Boss 302 is stunning.  There’s no doubt that the looks are backed up with amazing performance.  What will Ford price this amazing machine at?  No clue just yet.  But I’ll be saving my pennies until then.
