The new Mustang Boss 302 has been at Jay’s Garage once before, but this time he actually gets to drive it. And it’s not a ridiculous red or yellow one. It’s a properly manly black Boss! This 444-hp muscle car is tuned for track use. Muscle cars hate corners, yes, but with this 302 Ford seems to have made one that can actually go round a bend without embarrassing itself.
Jay is joined with Mustang Chief Engineer Dave Pericak to check out the Boss:
The Boss benefits from some unusual features for a Mustang. It gets unique, lightweight 19-inch black alloy racing wheels in staggered widths: 9 inches in front, 9.5 inches in the rear. The Pirelli PZero summer tires are sized specifically for each end of the car, with the front wheels receiving 255/40ZR-19 tires while the rear stays planted thanks to 285/35ZR-19 rubber. It’s engine is proper muscle though. And the noise it makes is fantastic.
