The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 will be available in a limited number of color combinations including Kona Blue Metallic.

Hot on the heels of the new Mustang GT comes the 2012 version of the Mustang Boss 302, carrying on a Ford tradition that started in 1969 with the introduction of the original Boss 302 (302 is the number of cubic inches in the Boss 302’s 5.0-liter V-8 engine).  The new one will pack 440 horsepower and 380 foot-pounds of torque, and a whole host of improvements to its body, chassis, suspension, wheels and tires.

Performance Plus!

The original Boss 302 was homologated for the Sports Car Club of America’s Trans American Championship Series, or Trans Am, when Mustang, Cougar, Camaro, Firebird, AMC Javelin, Dodge Challenger and Plymouth Barracuda all raced against each other for supremacy in the ponycar segment of the market.
