Inside Look: Why the 2012 Mustang Boss 302 isn’t just a sticker and wheel package
When Ford first revealed the initial details about the 2012 Boss 302, they assured the Mustang community that the car would be the real deal. “We were either going to do it right or not do it at all – no one on the team was going to let Boss become a sticker and wheel package,” said Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer. “The Boss 302 isn’t something a Mustang GT owner can buy all the parts for out of a catalog or that a tuner can get by adding a chip. This is a front-to-back re-engineered Mustang with every system designed to make a good driver great and a great driver even better.”
So what exactly makes the Boss 302 different? Ford put together a display at the Los Angeles Auto Show to show those differences. We’ve highlighted all of the Boss 302′s unique features below, from the Recaro seats to the unique TracKey and everything in between:
