2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 exhaust videos

The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 has truly lived up to its nameplate and the Boss moniker isn’t exactly one to learn; it’s one to earn.  So many of us had been thinking Ford would have come back with a 2012 Mustang to sweep the sweet Shelby Mustang aside temporarily in the spotlight…and we were right.  Hey, what’s not to like?  The car has insanely-hot styling cues, 444 horses underhood, and now, a means to bring upon an even louder, more aggressive presence.

A team at Fox Motorsports took hold of a 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca and went to work removing the exhaust restrictors, cataloging exhaust notes for us, before & after modification.  So what do you do to a good thing to make it better?  Get more of it!

Corral: the Mustang V6, the Mustang GT, the Boss 302 Laguna Seca, and the Shelby GT500.

Supercharged Ford Mustang sets half mile speed record

What happens when you mix a NASCAR driver, Bristol Motor Speedway, a Ford Racing 2011 Mustang GT, and pit them against the toughest competitor out there…the clock?  An awesome display of skill & horsepower, that’s in the least!  David Ragan put down the net to his Ford Fusion and took the reins of a tweaked-out 2011 Mustang GT in an attempt to post up a serious half-mile time.  How did he fair?  He posted a new production car speed & time record of 98.497 miles per hour in just 19.481 seconds.  Pretty awesome feat!

So while that doesn’t sound all too impressive to those of us used to 1320 times, well, put it like this: the best of super bikes was only able to eek out a time just a tenth slower & a mph slower, also.  That’s nuts; a Mustang beating a bike around the track in a 1/2-mile sprint!
