Mustang Boss 302
1,123 ORIG. MILES, COLLECTOR GRADE, 302 COYOTE MOTOR, 6 SPEED, TRAKEY PACKAGE
Ford has been cranking out special edition Mustangs for decades, but if we had to pick a recent model that is destined for future greatness and skyrocketing values, it would be this 2012 Mustang Boss 302. More than just a decal kit and a lowered suspension, this is arguably the best Mustang ever made. And if you haven't driven one, you just don't know what you're missing.
This is what Mustang fans have always dreamed of, a Mustang that needs no excuses and offers no apologies. Sure, it looks like most of its siblings, separated only by a deeper chin spoiler and those Shinoda-esque graphics along its flanks, but that's only scratching the surface of what this car is all about. The brilliant Kona Blue paint seems to glow like a sapphire, and with the price being what it was in 2012, the guys in the Ford paint shop seem to have spent a little extra time making it nearly perfect. Overall this car looks absolutely stunning. Of course, with only 1,123 original miles (not a typo), it shouldn't be surprising that it still looks showroom fresh, with crisp edges and a miles-deep finish that definitely gets noticed. The deeper chin spoiler is in excellent shape, unmarred by a steep driveway or parking curb, and it's unlikely that this car has ever seen rain.
The Boss's interior got a decent makeover as well. Sure, it's still Mustang all the way, but things like the synthetic suede steering wheel and machine-turned aluminum trim make it stand out. This car carries the optional Recaro seats, which are supremely comfortable and supportive, and feature built-in provisions for race harnesses, so Ford obviously knew what we'd be doing with the new Boss. The Recaros were part of the TracKey package, which cost $1995 and also added a trick Torsen limited-slip differential. The gauges have the same cool electro-luminescent dials and retro-looking fonts as the other Mustangs and pretty much everything was standard, from A/C to a decent AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo system. The back seats have probably never been used, and the trunk is as new with factory linings and no stains, wrinkles, or dust. Wow!
More power was only part of the package, but nobody's going to complain about the added 32 horsepower in the Boss, for a total of 444. There's a lot of expensive custom work in the engine, including CNC porting and bigger cams, plus race-spec bearings for high-RPM use. We doubt this particular engine has ever seen any track time, or even excursions to redline, but it's nice to know it's got the hardware to do it without issues. It's well-labeled with a bit BOSS 302 intake plenum and special blue valve covers, and everything is just the way the factory did it. There's also a slick-shifting 6-speed manual gearbox with well-chosen ratios, and a suspension that's designed to dance with you, not pummel the road into submission. The car moves like it weighs 1000 pounds less than it does, and the massive 4-piston Brembos with 14-inch rotors never seem to get tired. The suspension stays planted no matter how ham-fisted you are, and the massaged Coyote engine makes one heck of a great noise at full song. Special 19-inch wheels are painted black and carry 255/40/19 front and 285/35/19 rear Pirelli P-Zero rubber.
