Ford Mustang BOSS 302R

The 2011 Ford Mustang BOSS 302R was developed by Bud Moore Engineering, a factory-built race car ready for track days and road racing in a number of Grand-Am, SCCA and NASA classes. Jamie Allison, director, Ford North America Motorsports, stated to the press that the Ford team had built modern versions of the most iconic performance Mustangs over the years as they wanted to keep up with consumer demand and the latest addition to the list of America's most coveted Mustangs was the BOSS, being ready to race and win. Allison added that the 302R would provide that same sort of competitive product for their customers with the tradition one could only get from Ford Racing. A 5.0-liter four-valve engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission will be integrated into each model which will further include race seats, a roll cage, safety harness, race dampers, data acquisition, a Brembo brake and tire package, starting at an MSRP of $79,000.
The Grand-Am Homologation Package allows the car model to compete in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series, starting with the season-opening race in Daytona on Jan. 29, 2010. A high-speed balance one-piece driveshaft, a race performance exhaust, ABS brake tuning, race suspension dampers, a seam-welded body, a close-ratio six-speed transmission with integral shifter as well as a sealed high-output race engine with an upgraded cooling system will feature the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge-ready Mustang BOSS 302R. The BOSS 302R follows in the very successful footsteps of its most recent road racing predecessor the Mustang FR500C from Ford Racing. Available through Ford dealers, a total of 50 BOSS 302R Mustangs will be built by Ford Racing. Delivery is anticipated in the third quarter of 2010.
