2012 FORD MUSTANG BOSS 302 BACKGROUND
Of course, Boss 302 Mustangs were kings of the Trans Am scene when they debuted in 1969 and 1970. To revive this hallowed nameplate in modern form, Ford started with a 2012 Mustang GT, dropped in a new high-revving version of its DOHC V8, a speed-speed manual, upgraded suspension and brakes, and proceeded to spank every other performance car in its price-range. Oo-rah America!

THE MODERN BOSS 302 ENGINE
This new 5.0-liter version of Ford’s DOHC modular V8 was made to rev. It achieved 444 horsepower at a stratospheric 7400 rpm! This kind of performance in a lightweight Mustang produced zero-to-60 times of 4-seconds flat!
