Along with the 5.0-liter V-8, Ford is resurrecting the legendary Boss 302 with a new track-ready Mustang that will be sold at dealerships. The Ford Mustang Boss 302R will feature a roll cage, race seats, safety harness, data acquisition, race suspension, Brembo brakes, and special tires, ready for racing in Grand-Am, SCCA, and NASA series. The Boss 302R will not be street legal. Power will come from the 5.0-liter V-8 paired with a six-speed manual. The return of the Boss recognizes the fortieth anniversary of Parnelli Jones' 1970 Trans-Am championship in a Boss 302.
To purchase a 302R, customers will technically have to place their order through their dealer's parts department, as the vehicle is considered a racing part. Ford will only sell 50 Boss 302Rs, with MSRP starting at $79,000. Deliveries are expected in the fall of 2010.
A special package, known as the 302R1, preps the Boss for competition in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series. Ford currently plans to deliver five of the Grand-Am cars at a price of $129,900 for the season's start on January 29, 2010 in Daytona, Florida. The 302R1 features a sealed, high-output race engine, upgraded cooling system, close-ration transmission with integral shifter, a seam-welded body, Koni dampers, ABS brake tuning, race exhaust, and one-piece driveshaft.
