2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302S Unveiled

Follow Nelson

Just as we promised you a little over a week ago, Ford Racing has developed its track-only hardcore 2012 Mustang BOSS 302S. The official details released today read like a solid-axle track addict's dream.

Based on the same basic set of features as the 2012 Mustang BOSS 302 production car, the 302S adds some highly effective and equally impractical for the street aero, including a very low, deep splitter and a large rear wing. The gearbox is a standard six-speed, while a T2 Torsen limited-slip diff and 3.73 gears send the power to the ground. The car is built to be competitive in several racing series.

"The enthusiasts who purchase the BOSS 302S will be competitive in both the World Challenge GTS and the NASA American Iron Series. We look forward to adding their names to the BOSS 302's racing history," said Mark Wilson, engineering manager of Ford Racing.

Double adjustable coil-over dampers and Ford Racing anti-roll bars cover the handling, while reinforced body panels, a stripped interior, and an FIA-approved six-point roll gage make the BOSS 302S truly trackable. A Recaro Head and Neck Support system, Pro-Racer race seat, six-point harness, quick-release steering wheel and AiM GPS data acquisition system round out the features.

Production is planned for Q2 2011, with pricing to start at $79,000.

  3. This version is strictly for the track, the first curb would tear off the splitter and you would have to change a lot of other mechanical properties to get the vehicle inspected, gas mileage might be a little off with a rear gear ratio being 3:73.
