Ford Mustang Boss 302

The 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 was built on the heritage of the 1970 Boss 302, representing the first modern application on a production car. Its standard feature is embodied by the Ford SYNC connectivity system which adds to a specially tuned engine, brakes, quad exhaust, suspension and design, optimizing track performance, aerodynamics and weight. The SYNC is a must-have technology which allows customers to enjoy the core hands-free features and services. Calling back to the 1970 Boss 302, the new Boss integrates a new hockey stick graphic featuring reflective stripes. Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer, stated that everything they had done for 2013, was consistent with and linked directly back to their 1970 heritage and the previous year they proved that the car had what it took to perform. He added that they focused on emphasizing its eye-catching looks and celebrating its history. Complemented by hockey stick stripes and gray interior rear cross-brace, the Boss Laguna Seca features new Sterling Gray accents and it will be offered to its enthusiasts in vintage School Bus Yellow and black paint offerings. The more powerful design with a more prominent grille is similar to the redesigned base Mustang lineup, while the functional hood extractors together with the strong splitter, complete the special appearance. Connecting the taillamps, which provide a smoked look, the rear end comprises a high-gloss black panel. The powerful engine of this vehicle produces 444 HP and 380 lb.-ft. of torque, without affecting the smooth ride. Handling is improved by the 3.73-ratio rear axle using carbon fiber plates, which also receives power. Ford's suspension were also thouroughly massaged by the engineers, as their aim was to meet the Semon "Bunkie" Knudsen's mandate "to build absolutely the best-handling street car available on the American market.
