Faithful to the original, except for surpassing it in every way

Watch 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 dyno run

Jim Farley, Ford’s group VP of global marketing, didn’t have to fly to California for the debut of the Mustang Boss 302, but he came anyway. Here’s what he had to say after the event:

I’ve been driving my own Mustang right through the past two Michigan winters thinking about this project. From a business standpoint, the Boss 302 shouldn’t have happened, But it did.

My dream for the car was that it would make a lot of money for a guy street racing. It should be a car that winds up on YouTube doing something illegal. I’ve been waiting for over 20 years to launch a car like this.
