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
2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 The Mustang Boss 302 is a high-performance variant of the Ford Mustang originally produced by Ford in 1969 and 1970, alongside its more powerful sibling the Boss 429 Mustang. Ford revived the Boss 302 nameplate for 2012. The standard 2011 Ford Mustang GTs 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine is enhanced and was referred to within Fords development teams as the Road Runner engine. For consignment a Red Race key active Boss 302 from 2012 and the blue oval. An exceptionally clean example with Recaro seats, and upgraded clutch line, HID head lighting, and all bathed in Race Red with black accenting, powder coated black 19-inch wheels, and wide radials...this beautiful example can shame any bowtie out there. Exterior Ultra fine straight steel panels cover the solid framework of this car, and are all bathed in Race Red. A shiny black front spoiler, hood bump highlighter, black roof, rear spoiler and the hockey stick cove surrounded by badging stripes all add some racing inspired bling to the exterior. ACAP Films have the entire front clip, mirrors and trunk edge protected with Expel PPF to add some extra protection to the exterior paint. A lesson learned from the consignors drive home from his dealer purchase when a stone flipped up and chipped the hood and windshield. The rock chips were professionally repaired and the car was repainted from the windshield forward. Tinted glass has black surrounds, and a black rocker panel cover finishes off this street racer/Boss 302. 19-inch powder coated wheels in black add to the overall look which is very sporty and aggressive, yet still reminiscent of those that came before this version. Interior Inside the passenger compartment, black suede and leather Recaro racing seats are installed, and the center of attention for the passenger compartment. The sporty dash with blue LED display instruments fronts these seats and uses its sculpted lines to show off sportiness throughout the interior. A rear 2 plus 2 seat is installed and 2 more can go for the joyride! Black carpeting is in nice clean condition, and in front Weather tech mats are protecting this carpeting, as is a Weathertech panel for the rear trunk. With plenty of conveniences this interior is all buttoned up and pointing to excellent condition. Drivetrain Under the sculpted hood is the heart of the matter in the form of the Boss 302 5.0 Liter Coyote V8 with EFI. An MT-82 6-speed manual transmission is on the back of this buxom mill, and power gets pushed rearward to a Ford 8.8 inch 3.73 TracLoc rear axle. At night, some blue accent LED lighting shows up in the engine compartment. Also, a note to the hydraulic clutch line which has been upgraded to a high performance braided line. Undercarriage Simply put, just showroom underneath with factory overspray, aero coverings, racing inspired suspension which is adjustable, and power Brembo front disc brakes and rear discs add the woah factor to counteract the go factor. Drive-Ability A solid runner, good acceleration and steady braking with rail like handling. Interior seats are very comfy, and instruments are well within the drivers eye scan. All functions were working as they should. I noticed this car has a front curb sensor attached within. Just a beautiful example in excellent condition for this Boss 302 from 2012. Harkening back to the days of earlier models yet contemporary ion its racy design to menace the competition.
