Exterior Color:
Competition Orange

This 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 has bold paint, a loaded A/C interior, and a performance-bred 32-valve 5.0-liter Coyote V8 that still has a home in brand-new Mustangs. So this is your chance at a modern pony car legend, and as you dig deeper, you\'ll also notice some upgrades that let this one gallop with more authority.

Ford built one just for the enthusiasts in 2012. They resurrected the Ford Mustang Boss 302 name for a special edition that is worthy of the legend. The paint you can\'t take your eyes off of is called Competition Orange. There\'s an attractive gloss and shine, but the odometer should reflect the full mileage, and so this car has been driven and enjoyed. But that\'s likely your plan, too. After all, when you get a chance to be the Boss on the streets, you\'ll take every advantage. And you already know the affordable price makes this instantly attractive. And we love how this new generation Boss continues the stripe package on the hood and sides that are inspired by Larry Shinoda\'s original design. So it\'s worth the price of admission all on its own. The stripes join a full blackout package on the front air dam, grille, spoiler, rear panel, and tinted windows. And we especially like the look of the black roof and Ford Racing 19-inch black alloys. It really is a full aggressive package, right down to the power bulge of the GT hood.

The interior reminds you this is a true driver\'s machine. You get Boss 302 embroidered seatbacks, a racer-style synthetic suede steering wheel, and machine-turned aluminum trim on the dash. But while this is a competition-inspired machine, it\'s also a feature-filled coupe. It includes air conditioning, power windows, power locks, cruise control, and keyless entry. The radio is an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with a modern hookup for your iPod or phone. Speaking of modern conveniences, you also get the safety of dual front airbags, side airbags, ABS, and stability control. But your favorite features are the ones that will have you seeing red. There\'s a glowing red cue-ball shifter boldly sitting in the middle of this dark interior. And the included red Track Key that can be programmed (at Ford) to unleash the full power of this modern beast.

With dual overhead cams, 32-valves, and 5.0-liters, the Coyote V8 is one of the best modern engines of our time. The special Boss motor was massaged to be more powerful than the GT for an impressive 444 horsepower at its peak. Plus, the exhaust was upgraded with deleted cats, and a growling side-exit cutout system (you can get blocking plates to return a more traditional dual exhaust.) You have full control over this performance V8 and its rumbling soundtrack thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. In fact, speaking of control, the full Boss package includes great competition-inspired components like Ford Racing lowering springs and a Ford Racing one-piece driveshaft. And with every driving convenience from power steering to four-wheel power disc brakes, we know why you\'ll be taking this speedy pony everywhere.

This is the kind of modern classic that knows how to be out there in the world and help grow the icon of the performance-built Boss 302s. So if you want to be legendary, call today!
