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.
