Los Angeles, California – Ford has presented the 2013 Mustang Boss 302 at the Los Angeles Show, building on the heritage of the 1970 model.
The 2013 version has a new reflective hockey stick graphics package, the first modern application on a production car.
The new model also features standard SYNC connectivity, a specially-tuned engine, quad exhaust, and optimized brakes, suspension and design. A new School Bus Yellow paint option honours Parnelli Jones’ 1970 Trans-Am championship car.
“Everything we did for 2013 is consistent with, and links directly back, to our 1970 heritage,” said Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer. “The reflective stripes and hockey stick graphic in particular mean something to Mustang enthusiasts. Last year, we proved the car had what it takes to perform, and this year we focused on enhancing its eye-catching looks and celebrating its history.”
Similar to the redesigned base Mustang lineup, the Boss 302 features a more powerful front end with prominent grille, new splitter, functional hood extractors, standard HID headlamps and LED-surround taillamps.
Removable covers where the fog lamps would normally be can be easily removed with a screwdriver for improved cooling on track days.
