The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 was a limited-production variant of the fifth generation Ford Mustang.

It is a track-oriented version of the Mustang trim which is based on the 2011 Mustang GT. The 5.0L V8 features CNC ported cylinder heads, revised steering system and camshafts, and a high flow intake which was previously only fitted to the 302R race car.

The Boss 302 is fitted with the suspension seen on the 2011 Mustang GT but with higher-rate coil springs, stiffer bushings, and a larger diameter rear stabiliser bar. It also has a lower ride height, sport mode traction control, and revised stability controls.

The 2012 Boss 302 also had its own high-performance variant in the form of the more exclusive Laguna Seca Edition. It had an aerodynamic package which is a near direct copy of that of the Boss 302R race car. In addition, it sported further modifications such as the removal of the rear seats and optional equipments, as well as further stiffened body and suspension.

Like the first Mustang Boss 302, it was on sale for two years before production ended.

Need for Speed: WorldEdit

The Boss 302 was initially available in Need for Speed: World as a Tier 3 Top-Up vehicle from September 26th, 2011. It was made available in the car dealer on November 29th, 2011.

Since August 22nd, 2012, it has been featured as a 'A' Class vehicle. On October 16th, 2012, it was made purchasable for in-game cash, which was retired on January 9th, 2013. It was re-released on March 5th, 2013.

The stock variant has a 688 overall rating and costs Dollar icon1,900,000. It is included in the Gold Starter Pack as standard. The SpeedBoost variant is upgraded with Amerikon Speedsystems Street Tuned parts. It has a 734 overall rating and costs SpeedBoost24,900. Both are upgradeable to S Class.

The acceleration of the Boss 302 is up to par with other high-performance A Class cars such as the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640. It has a decent nitrous boost. Its handling feels responsive although the car will easily slide under hard cornering. Top speed is 192 mph (309 km/h). The SpeedBoost version is capable of reaching 216 mph (348 km/h).

Special VariantsEdit

A "The Boss" variant was made available on December 16th, 2011. It is currently unavailable for purchase.

It is fitted with a series of aftermarket parts and special police vinyls as well as usable police lights. It is upgraded with Gromlen race tuned parts, which increase its class rating to S and its overall rating to 756.

A "Drag King" variant was made available on October 5th, 2013. It can be purchased for SpeedBoost25,900.

It is fitted with a series of aftermarket parts and special vinyls to make it resemble Karol Monroe's Mustang GT featured in Need for Speed: ProStreet. It is upgraded with a mix of parts to make it reach the overall rating of 749. It is also equipped with 2-star drag skill mods.

Need for Speed: The RunEdit

The Boss 302 appears in Need for Speed: The Run as an unlocked Tier 2 vehicle.

Its top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h) is lacking to the rest of the Tier 2 competition but the trait is compensated by quick acceleration. The Boss 302 has a "Very Difficult" handling rating, as opposed to the Ford Mustang RTR, which has a better handling but a slower acceleration.

Special VariantsEdit

The Boss 302 also appears as a Tier 5 "ED Edition" vehicle and as a Tier 4 "Razor Edition" vehicle.

The ED Edition is unlocked upon defeating Eddie Cooke in the first event of Stage 10. It has quick acceleration, a "Very Difficult" handling rating and a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h).

The Razor Edition was included in the Most Wanted Challenge Series pre-order bonus and is available with the purchase of the Heroes and Villains Pack. It is unlocked upon earning a gold medal for all Most Wanted Challenges.

The car's performance is up to par with most Tier 4 cars. It has a "Challenging" handling rating and a top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h).

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)Edit

The Ford Mustang Boss 302 appears as a Muscle class vehicle in Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012).

The Boss 302 is unlocked upon finding its Jack Spots in singleplayer. In multiplayer, it is unlocked upon reaching SpeedLevel 27.

It is a Muscle class vehicle that is up to par with the Bentley Supersports ISR and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in the terms of acceleration. The main drawback of the Boss 302 is its handling which makes the car understeer at high speed. However, drifts are easy to perform provided that the player brakes during corner entry.

The Boss 302 can withstand collisions well in pursuits due to its durability.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) (Mobile)Edit

The Ford Mustang Boss 302 appears in the mobile release of Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) in the Muscle category. It costs $60,000 and has the same stats as the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1; a focus on acceleration with a low handling rating.
