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

It is a track-oriented version of the Mustang trim 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: Most Wanted (2012)

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

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

As a muscle class vehicle, it is up to par with the Bentley Supersports ISR and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in the terms of acceleration, but 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.

It can withstand collisions well in pursuits due to its durability.

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

The 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 but with a low handling rating.
