Video of the awesome Boss Mustang TracKey

After we showed you the 2012 Mustang BOSS 302 from Ford Racing and its awesome TracKey feature back in November, we got lots of questions on when we would see this new tech in action. Our inquisition is now pacified…

This little piece of pocket tech from Ford Racing allows for direct personality shift between street and track performance trims. The standard black key does all the regular, simple functions one expects in a carved piece of metal. The red TracKey, however, engages a software program which changes over 200 power train parameters.

Hit the jump to see the BOSS 302 in action with the all-new TracKey technology.

1-shot Grabber Blue 2012 Mustang Boss on the block

UPDATE:  Sold for $450,00 at the auction!

Looks like the Blue Oval boys have set up an attention getter at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Laguna Seca, with a hotter than ever 2012 Mustang Boss 302 set to take stage and go home with a thick wallet.  The proceeds from the sale of this 2012 Boss will, like many Shelby auctions of recent, go for the benefit of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

This one-of-a-kind Grabber Blue Boss Mustang will sport more than the base Boss stuff.  It will also adorn black accents upon the roof, mirrors, and spoiler; will have a set of Recaro seats with Grabber Blue embroidery, and under the hood–a 444hp 5.0-liter V8.  Awesome.

2012 Mustang Boss 302 to carry $41K price tag

With recent announcements of 2012 specifications, offerings, and a two-key engine control system, the 2012 Mustang Boss 302 is no stranger to Ford Mustang fans worldwide.  One key stat recently surfaced…what we’d all be focused upon during the litmus test of ownership.  The new Boss Mustang is set to carry an MSRP of $40,995 (destination & delivery inclusive).  Most of the Mustang enthusiast discussion has poured over this topic, centering on the fact Ford would keep the package at or around the $40K mark…and they were right.

A few key options can be added to the Boss 302 in order to make that number quickly jump over the $41K mark, however.  The Recaro seating and torsen differential option package will run an additional $1,995.  Go for the Boss 302 Accessory Package (car cover and floor mats) and the price tag creeps up by $475.  Opt for the Yellow Blaze Tricoat Metallic paint and expect to see another $495 on the pricing sheet.  Lastly, the Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca package will have an MSRP of $47,990 which includes destination and delivery.

So what do you think, guys & gals?  Is the price right?  Are you going to trade up to the new Boss?

2012 Mustang Boss offers up Jekyll & Hyde with 2 keys

Prospective owners who eventually take the reins of the new 2012 Mustang Boss will be further surprised at the latest pet feature unveiled by Ford today.  The pony car will be offered in twin-key fashion; one key, adorned with a black Boss logo & another key in a racing red hue (the TracKey) which turns the Mustang Boss 302 into a tarmac-ripping beast.  This project was spearheaded by the Mustang engineering team, Ford Racing, and TracKey, adding a complete powertrain control module (PCM) program to be activated solely by the turn of a specific key.  Over 200 engine management settings are adjusted, increasing torque, engaging two-stage launch control, and summary aggressive performance in order to tackle the track.

So just how does the magic happen?  Keep reading to get a view from behind the curtain in the Ford Press Release.

Hope yet remains for a BOSS Ford Mustang return

2012_Ford_Mustang_Boss_302

We’ve got to keep the rumor mill crankin’, right?  We all saw and drooled over the Ford Racing BOSS 302R from late last year.  We have witnessed the return of the legendary 5.0 Mustang.  Now, we have caught wind of some continued buzz surrounding the return of a street-trimmed BOSS Mustang.  Mark Fields, Ford President of the Americas, recently dropped a hint/clue/seed/tale that the BOSS moniker could make its way back to production.

“We did the Bullitt, we did a Mach 1, we did the C/S.  I can’t tell you what the next special edition Mustang will be, but I can give you a hint.”

Shortly after his teaser lines, a 1970 BOSS 302 Mustang thundered across the hosting dealership stage and Fields remarked, “Is that a subtle enough hint?”

Let’s hope so, Mark.  Let’s hope so.
