Boss is back. The legendary Ford Mustang Boss 302 was unveiled at Laguna Seca racetrack. The new Boss is described as “the quickest, best-handling straight-production Mustang ever offered by Ford.”
The standard 302 Boss is seriously powefull: Ford’s engineers trained their 5.0 liter V8 with new intake, revised cams, retuned ECU to get as much as 440 HP [380 of torque]. The pony beast had its suspension, brakes, wheels and tires upgraded. The power is delivered through a short-throw 6-speed manual gearbox with an upgraded clutch. The result – 155 mph [249 km/h] top speed. Many other upgrades are done as well including interior and exterior features.
Ford is going to build a limited number of special edition Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca track models. These are going to have racing suspension, stiffer body with extra aerodynamic features.
