The Boss 302 is back. And this time it looks more tuner car then ever before.

The 302 will be powered by the same new 5.0-liter V8, which now turns up 440 ponies(couldn’t help it) 28 more than the standard GT and 380 lb-feet of torque thanks to revised cams, new intake and a tweaked ECU.  A six-speed manual with a short shifter and your choice of the standard limited slip or an optional Torsen unit keep the power on the ground.  Pirelli Pzeros is the rubber of choice, with 255/40ZR19s for the front, 285/25ZR19 out back.

The new Boss sounds more muscular than ever. Ford put the new Stang on an 11 pound diet by removing additional sound dampening and put side pipes with “attenuation discs” that can be removed for additional noise. Definitely something we’re not use to seeing from the factory.

A new front splitter from the Boss 302R and a unique deck-lid spoiler set this Mustang apart. But the most eye-catching features have to be the new color scheme. It looks like something ready for SEMA then the actual street, with a retro Jordan edition paint pattern to boot. But like all the other new Mustangs, this one is sure to sell like hotcakes.
