It’s Back: 2012 Mustang Boss 302

This year has to be one of the most exciting ever to be a Ford Mustang fan.  Why?  The legendary 5.0 has made its return, for starters.  The base Mustang coupe pumps out over 300hp with insane fuel economy metrics.  Now, we can focus our eyes upon one more fantastic Ford news bite: the 2012 Ford Mustang BOSS 302 is a reality!  We’d hinted at the return of a BOSS when we saw the BOSS 302R Mustang variant released & figured Ford was doing some initial viral marketing to test the waters.  So, here we are, looking down the barrel and we’ve got the 2012 BOSS Mustang in our sights.  This is simply awesome!

Virtually ever single vehicle system has been upgraded to legendary BOSS performance standards.  The engine, brakes, suspension, interior, exterior–the whole package has been geared up with one thing in mind: track performance & domination.  Not since 1968 have we seen Ford get this pumped up about a track terror and road machine, all wrapped into the same package.  We’ve gotta say, it’s been well worth the wait.

Like what you see and hear?  Check out some highlights below, then dive into the official Press Release from Ford that follows.

The Compilation of Ford Mustang Special Editions

2009 Ford Mustang

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past oh say, 15 years, you’d sure to realize the Ford Mustang aftermarket is something that continues to sizzle on far beyond the dreams Carroll Shelby and Lee Iacocca ever imagined back in the 1960s.  The staggering number of late-model Mustang spin-offs is something that could be seen as awesome, inspiring, or even sometimes comical.  It’s quite daunting just how many flavors of the Ford Mustang there are.  What’s more, we’ve done our best to draft up a list for you to digest, observe, and most importantly–help continue to add to it where we’ve left out!

Ready for this bitter pill?  You better be, because we’re going to take a look at the comments to see if there are any we’ve missed (to date) and then also recruit you to help build the SN95, Fox, Mustang II, and Classic special edition lists.  We’ve got the page breaks ready, so let’s hear it!
