MAY: 2012 Mustang BOSS 302

When it goes on sale later this spring, the Ford Mustang BOSS 302 will help complete Ford's range of Mustangs, slotting nicely beneath the Shelby GT500 and above the GT. It uses the GT's 5.0-liter V8, but with a revised intake and other mods, it will produce 444 hp versus the GT's 412 hp. There will be a bevy of suspension modifications as well, including a unique strut tower brace, firmer springs and bushings, larger antiroll bars and manually adjustable shocks and struts. Ford is also promising stronger Brembo brakes and a short-throw, six-speed gearbox. Expect pricing just below $40,000, although a track-only Laguna Seca model (with racing slicks and a non-street-legal front air diffuser) will likely push pricing to $45,000.
