The Ford Mustang may see another variant in its stable as Ford Racing decided to show off the new Boss 302SX at the Performance Racing Industry show in Florida. What is strange about this is there was very little media hype built around the reveal of this concept, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve it in the least.
The 302SX concept packs an overhauled version of the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 cranking out over 500 horsepower thanks to the same intake manifold found on the 2013 Mustang Cobra Jet.
Performance is also improved with a new oil cooler, fuel system, fully adjustable coil-over suspension and high flow Ford Racing Mufflers. For ultimate levels of grip, the 302SX concept sports 18×9.5 inch wheels with full racing slicks. With all that power it is no surprise that Brembo multi-piston brakes are found at every corner of the vehicle.
Ultimately, the 302SX is designed to be an ultimate track car and even the interior is equipped with an FIA-Spec 6-point roll cage and a single Recaro racing seat for the driver.
All that sounds great, but will it come to market? It seems highly probable, as the 302SX would fit in nicely between the power spectrum of the Boss 302 and the 650 horsepower 2013 GT500, wouldn’t you say?[expand]
LOS ANGELES, CA (Nov., 2011) – Although the Los Angeles Auto Show is technically the last, big U.S.-based international auto show on the calendar each year, it’s actually the event that kicks off the auto show season in the American car market. And while the L.A. Auto Show may not draw as many journalists as Detroit’s North American International Auto Show, or command the sheer square-footage of the Chicago Auto Show, make no mistake – it is no less important.
