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
This 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 has bold paint, less than 2,500 miles on the odometer, a spotless A/C interior, and a performance-bred 32-valve 5.0-liter Coyote V8 that still has a home in brand new Mustangs. So this is your chance at a modern pony car legend that has barely ever left the stable! Ford built one just for the enthusiasts in 2012. They resurrected the Ford Mustang Boss 302 name for a special edition that is worthy of the legend. The paint you cant take your eyes off of is called Competition Orange. With such low mileage, this instant classic still has its showroom shine. Plus, the Boss 302 striping package on the hood and sides are inspired by Larry Shinodas original design. So its worth the price of admission all on its own. The stripes join a full blackout package on the front air dam, grille, spoiler, rear panel, and tinted windows. And we especially like the look of the black roof and Ford Racing 19-inch black alloys. It really is a full aggressive package, right down to the power bulge of the GT hood. With such little mileage, its no surprise that the special optional Boss 302 Recaro sport seats are in excellent condition. This is a true drivers machine, so you get a racer-style synthetic suede steering wheel and machine-turned aluminum trim on the dash. But while this is a competition-inspired machine, its also a feature-filled coupe. It includes air conditioning, power windows, power locks, cruise control, and keyless entry. The radio is a AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with modern hookup for your iPod. Speaking of modern conveniences, you also get the safety of dual front airbags, side airbags, ABS, and stability control. But your favorite feature is going to be the special Track Key that can be programmed to unleash the full power of this modern beast. With dual overhead cams, 32-valves, and 5.0-liters, the Coyote V8 is one of the best modern engines of our time. The special Boss motor was massaged to be more powerful than the GT, and with so few miles on this example, its hard to believe its anything but all-original. It produces a blistering 444 horsepower at its peak, and you have full control over this performance V8 and its growling soundtrack thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. In fact, speaking of control, the full Boss package includes great competition-inspired components like Ford Racing lowering springs, Ford Racing one-piece driveshaft, and the optional Torsen real differential package. You can see all these upgrades so well, because the undercarriage is so fresh that the factory stickers are still clearly visible. Of course, with every driving convenience from power steering to four-wheel disc brakes, we know you wont be able to resist adding to the ultra-low odometer of the speedy pony. The sale comes with everything a future classic like this needs, including the original window sticker and owners manual packet. Well be telling the legend of these Boss 302s for decades to come, so this is a rare opportunity to get one thats basically factory fresh. Call today!!!
