Ford chose the very appropriate Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show to debut the all new 2013 Mustang Boss 302S race car. Siting mid-way between the Laguna Seca model and the Boss 302R race car (a purpose built machine designed to compete in the Grand Am Series), the 302S is a slightly less aggressive track machine designed for duty in the SCCA’s World Challenge and NASA’s American Iron series.
Essentially a replacement for the FR500S, the Boss 302S gets a 440-hp version of the Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter V8 mated to a stock transmission, clutch and flywheel. Along with a special aero kit with big front splitter, vented hood and absolutely massive rear spoiler, the car gets typical race prepped goodies like a six-point roll cage, Recaro seats, an adjustable suspension and Brembo brakes.
Pricing for the new race car is a rather reasonable $79,000 – not bad for a package that, at the right hands, can be a competitor in World Challenge.
