Hennessey Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca

We’d be hesitant to modify a 2012 Mustang Boss 302 if we had one in the garage. Yes, there’s the collector factor, but truthfully, the car is pretty much perfect as-is. When we first drove the car earlier this year, we could hardly find fault with it, perhaps only wishing it had a better set of rear brakes. We didn’t even mind that it had more than 100 horsepower less than the Shelby GT500.

But then there’s guys like John Hennessey, who’s mantra is “Too much horsepower is never enough.” What does he do when he gets his hands on a 2012 Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca? Add more horsepower, of course. Hennessey has installed an Eaton TVS2300 supercharger system under the hood and turned up the boost to 10 psi. After running the car on their in-house dyno, Hennessey says that the car makes 563 rwhp and 475 rwtq.

For those wanting to do something similar to their 2012 Mustang Boss 302 (Laguna Seca models included), Hennessey will be offering an HPE650 upgrade as an installed kit available with a 3-year / 36,000 mile warranty. An HPE700 package could also be in the works.
