Ford releases the new Mustang Boss 302S
So you like the new 302 but want something with a little more racing flavor, well let me introduce you to the brand new Mustang Boss 302S. Unveiled today at Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show in Orlando, FL, the 302S is meant to fill the niche left by the FR500S as well as find its place into racing series such as SCCA's World Challenge and NASA's American Iron.
Being a turn key-track machine, power is being cranked out of the 5.0 liter V8, chucking out 444 Horsies. Also, much like the Laguna Seca version, it has a adjustable front splitter, adjustable suspension, and a 3.73:1 limited-slip diff.
However, unlike the Laguna Seca version, it has its interior gutted, being replaced with a 6-point roll-cage, Recaro race seat (I'm assuming this means its a driver only kind of car), 6-point harness, and a removable steering wheel.
Also it boasts a carbon-fiber deck-lid wing, a ventilated fiberglass hood, and a functional tow-hook.
All the weekend racers should't get too excited though. The 302S is going to be a limited production run of only 50 cars and price is going to start at $79K.
