Ford Racing Mustang Boss 302S - Web Exclusive

And now, Ford Racing has announced the latest addition to its turn-key ready-to race-Mustangs - the Boss 302S.

Dec 9, 2010

2010 saw the return of the Mustang Boss 302R at Daytona, and the unveiling of the 2012 Boss 302 production Mustang. And now, Ford Racing has announced the latest addition to its turn-key ready-to race-Mustangs - the Boss 302S.

Building on the race history of the Boss 302, Ford Racing is providing Mustang enthusiasts an affordable way to road-race with the introduction of the Mustang Boss 302S.

The limited production Boss 302S will be the third competition car in Ford Motor Company's history to be built at a Ford production facility and made available for racers to purchase through authorized Ford Racing dealers.

The Mustang FR500S was the first racecar built on a modern Ford production line, followed by the NHRA legal FR500CJ, aka. 'Cobra Jet.'

The 440hp Ford Mustang Boss 302S was developed by Ford Racing engineers, and will be built at the Auto Alliance International (AAI) assembly plant in Flat Rock, MI, the home of the Mustang.

The car is based on the street-legal 2012 Mustang Boss 302. The 302S is powered by a Boss 5.0-liter 4-valve Ti-VCT V-8 engine and includes a 6-speed transmission sourced directly from the Boss 302. Power is transferred to the rear via a T2 Torsen differential and 3.73:1 gears. The Boss 302S suspension features two-way adjustable coilover dampers and Ford Racing anti-roll bars front and rear.

The Boss 302S unibody starts as a Mustang body-in-white. To reduce weight, the factory seam sealer, sound deadener and interior panels are deleted prior to body build.

In addition to body reinforcement, a 6-point FIA-legal rollcage is installed for driver safety and chassis rigidity. The interior features a Recaro Hans Pro-Racer lightweight race seat, 6-point harness, quick-release steering wheel and AIM data acquisition system with GPS.

Boss 302S aerodynamic updates include a unique fiberglass heat-extracting hood, adjustable front splitter and adjustable carbon fiber rear wing.

A "retro" styled Boss 302 graphics package is included with each car and mimics the graphics from the original 1969 Boss 302 program.

Production is scheduled for the second quarter of 2011 and orders are now being taken by Ford Racing Performance Parts dealers by ordering part number FR500-B302S (performance white paint) or M-FR500-B302SO (orange paint).

The MSRP for the Boss 302S is $79,000.
