2012 Mustang Boss


Mustang Boss

There are several versions of the 2012 Mustang Boss: Mustang Boss 302 limited edition has a 440hp, 5.0L, V8; custom wheels; custom handling, and custom graphics. The extra power comes 302R technology: forged rotating assembly, CNC ported heads, and upgraded camshafts and intake. The Mustang Boss Laguna Seca 302 also has the 440hp, 5.0L V8; but it has a close-ratio six-speed transmission, a standard Torsen limited-slip rear differential, upgraded suspension tuning, 302R front splitter, black or ingot silver with red accents, blacked out grille with blocked out fog lamps, and a cross-bar X-brace instead of back seats. The Mustang Boss 302S is similar to the Boss Laguna Seca except that it has a black louvered hood insert, black (Laguna Seca has red) painted 19 inch wheels, large carbon fiber Ford Racing rear spoiler, 6-point roll cage, Pro-Racer seat, quick release steering wheel, a Recaro HANS system, and AiM data acquisition system. And to top that off, how about the Mustang Boss 302R built specifially for racing only.

Kona Blue Mustang Boss
This Kona Blue 2012 Boss 302 Mustang is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting April 21, 2013. The owner tells us, "The Boss 302 is indeed a very special edition car for Ford. The comeback Boss 302 was produced only in 2012 and 2013 model years - mirroring the 1969, and 1970 Boss 302s and their signature 'C and Hockey stick' stripes. Ford's focus for the current car was to provide a track-worthy car and they delivered with a road gripping, BMW M3 eater producing 444 hp and 380 ft-lb torque. Ford treated their enthusiasts for the Boss 302 with unique fanfare. The exhaust system includes side-pipes, which are factory hindered with a 'block-off' plate easily removable by the owners at home if they enjoy a louder exhaust note. Also, Ford took advantage of their MyKey technology and included a 'red key,' which, when coupled with Ford Racing's aftermarket tune (ironically $302). It unlocks the Boss 302R calibration, waking up throttle response, engine braking and a very cool lopey idle. Ford topped it off by sending original owners a package including Donald Farr's hardcover history of the Boss 302, an engraved and serialized keychain, the Ford Remakes A Legend DVD, a certificate of authenticity, a letter from the Marketing Manager and Mustang Chief Engineer, a poster, an invitation to a free track day at Miller Motorsports with race driving instruction, and some other brochures. Two options for the base Boss 302 were Recaro seats with Torsen differential and floor mats with car cover. I found this Boss 302 on eBay in May of 2012 - contacted the seller and flew from Michigan to Florida to see it in person before finalizing a deal. It turns out the original owner is a friend of Donald Farr, the Boss 302 guru, and asked Donald to sign the book which he then addressed to me and my family. I have 2 and 3 year old kids who don't have much room in the back, but they LOVE the Boss Mustang! Good thing it comes with child seat anchors. My mods include an MGW shifter and a Dynomax Race Bullet over-the-axle exhaust system, which was provided courtesy of DynoMax, but retains the stock side pipes."

Black Mustang Boss
Hero Card for the 2012 Mustang Boss Laguna Seca. It says, It's not for everybody... Celebrating the first-place Boss 302 finish at the 1970 Trans-Am series opener, the 2012 Laguna Seca package is designed for enthusiasts more interested in peak track performance than convenience and utility. It builds on the bumper-to-bumper refinements found on the standard Boss while removing even more weight, further stiffening the chassis and installing an aerodynamic package carried over almost in its entirety from the Ford Racing Boss 302R. Boss Laguna Seca uses the same 444-hp 5.0-liter V8 as the standard Boss, with refinements to the driveline, suspension, steering and brakes to deliver as close to a race-car experience as is possible on a street-legal machine.
