[ad#Top of Post Left]What I love most about the Ford Mustang is it’s versatility! On one platform it’s possible to reach the budget, look, and feel of almost everyone. Not a fan of huge motors and big power, yet love the style of the 2010 and newer Mustang, no problem buy the very capable V6. Love meaty, pavement wrecking torque, yet living on a normal persons budget, go for the standard GT. However, for those in the know, who want to grab the reigns of a truly demonic force, the Shelby GT500 is ready and waiting. These are just a few of the many different versions available on the Mustang platform and the new 2012 Boss 302 will be another contender.
The 2012 Boss 302 was built with a purpose, to create power, transfer that power to the road, and make your heart skip a beat. Complaints about the Boss 302 is it’s ride quality, suspension setup, and even racing seats. Were these people looking for luxury or were they looking for the greatest Iron American can produce?
This all new Boss provides a whopping 444 horsepower from just 5 liters of American made metal. The extra umph from the 302 comes via a new exhaust system, with 4 outlets. Like the side exit exhaust, cool, dig the rear exit pipes, awesome, with the 2012 Boss 302 you get both. What does that translate into on the track? How about 0-60 in 4.3 seconds and quarter mile lap time of just 12.3 seconds.
Short throws, stiff clutch, and adjustable electronic steering makes the Boss 302 a purposeful beast. A beast that isn’t interested in where you are going, rather focused on how it can get you there in the least time possible. A car built around the idea that intimidation reigns supreme on the highways and that the best way to intimidate is through throaty vocals at 2400 rpm. The person willing to throw down $40k + on this car is not concerned with it’s simple interior or non-telescoping steering wheel. They are only interested in how bad ass it is to push the gas pedal to the floor and hold on for dear life.
