Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.
Classic Car Overview
Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this sharp 2012 Ford Mustang BOSS 302. The odometer reads just over 24k miles on this well maintained sports car. This built Boss has had the tasteful addition of a Ford Performance Cobra Jet intake, Free flowing Kooks exhaust all stainless-steel headers and pipes, along with a custom tune that has brought up the power up to 2017 performance levels. This car was dynos at 525 HP at the crank and 446.87 rwhp with 390 ft/lb. of torque. Another notable feature changed on this sharp Mustang is that the MT-82 transmission was replaced with a Tremec Magnum XL, McLeod RXT tin disc clutch, lightweight flywheel, and aluminum driveshaft. With the conservative tune, Cobra Jet Pulse Rings, Billet oil pump gears, you can safely perform at a higher RPM. With all of this extra performance comes extra responsibility, you need to be able to stop the car after its going. The brakes were also upgraded to 15 6-piston Brembo brakes with Laguna Seca cooling ducts upfront, and 13.8 rear brakes from a 2014 GT500. Ford suspension was acceptable from the factory but the upper and lower control arms plus the caster/camber plates were changed out. From an appearance standpoint, this Boss remains 95% original but a few tasteful enhancements and improvements were made to the exterior and interior.
