Road Racers Rejoice! Ford Brings Back The Boss Mustang
Ford is hoping to relive its racing heritage with the new race-ready Boss 302R. It has been 40 years since Parnelli Jones won the 1970 Trans-Am championship in a Mustang Boss 302 prepared by Bud Moore Engineering, and to mark the event, Ford Racing has unleashed a new 5.0-liter monster, the Boss 302R, a factory-built racer aimed at numerous Grand-Am, SCCA and NASA classes.
“To keep pace with consumer demand, the Ford team has built modern versions of the most iconic performance Mustangs over the years,” said Jamie Allison, director, Ford North America Motorsports. “From Shelbys to Bullitt, Mach and Cobra Jet, it is now time for Boss to join the list of America’s most coveted Mustangs. The original Boss 302 was a championship-winning legend and the new Mustang Boss 302R will carry on the tradition. The Mustang was born to race from the start, and this new Mustang is bred to win.”
