There will be very few options for the 2012 Boss Mustang but for the standard Boss 302, buyers can select from a variety of color options and items like Recaro seats, a Torsen differential and an accessory package (floormats and a car cover) are available for an additional charge. Also, for those who want optimal track capabilities, the 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca is available for just $47,990 – but keep in mind that the Boss 302 Laguna Seca package does not come with a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) thus it is not street legal.
The most powerful and most capable factory built Ford Mustang for under $41k
When the original Boss Mustangs were introduced in 1969, they were unlike anything the industry had seen in terms of a factory production, street legal performance car and the 2012 Boss 302 looks to reinvent the Boss Mustang name with the same unsurpassed performance capabilities. In addition to the Boss 302’s modified 5.0L v8 offering 440 horsepower (compared to the 412hp in the standard Mustang GT), the Boss will feature suspension, braking and aerodynamic changes to make this the ultimate factory built, non-SVT Ford Mustang.
The 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca package takes the attitude of the 2012 Boss 302 one step further with a handful of modifications that make it fully ready for a romp around the toughest road courses in the country – hence being named after one of the toughest tracks in the country. This package removes the rear seat for weight reduction purposes and in its place, an x-brace improves chassis rigidity. The 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca package then adds a slightly enhanced suspension and braking setup compared to the street legal Boss 302 and topping it off is a handful of exterior upgrades that improve the aerodynamic properties along with giving the limited edition track-built Mustang Boss 302 a menacing appearance.
The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is set to hit the streets early in the 2011 calendar year.
