Among Mustang and modern muscle car fans, the 2012 Boss 302 is one of the most highly anticipated cars of the year, however diehard enthusiasts are bemoaning the fact that you won’t be able to get one in perhaps the Mustang’s most signature color – Grabber Blue. OR can you?
Ford has decided to paint one of it’s hot new 444-horsepower 2012 Boss 302s in the famed hue, and auction the car at Barrett-Jackson’s Westworld event. The car features the same 5.0-liter V8 as other Boss 302s, but along with the unique paint it will sport some special features, including black accents on the roof, mirror housings and spoiler, plus a Grabber blue interior X-brace and embroidery on the seats.
All proceeds from the sale of the car (above it’s MSRP) will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research foundation. Between them, Barrett-Jackson and Ford Motor Company have so far raised almost $2.5 million for the charity over the last four years.
