Ford has unveiled a special lightweight concept at the Performance Racing Industry Show in Florida called the Ford Mustang Boss 302SX. The concept exudes a track-focused attitude, with various performance revisions over the standard Boss 302.
It’s just a concept at this stage, but the 302SX has already kicked up quite a stir in the US. It features a new front bumper with a lower front spoiler, as well as an aggressive vented bonnet with a racy, go-fast stripe down the middle.
At the back there’s a new adjustable wing for optimum on-track downforce, and a revised rear bumper incorporating the outlets for a Ford Racing exhaust system. There’s also set of lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in racing tyres.
Ford has added a fully adjustable coilover suspension kit with adjustable sway bars and camber/caster plates, a set of tubular control arms, and a full roll cage. A set of Brembo brakes is also added to complete the track-ready package.
Engine performance has been increased from the standard 5.0-litre V8’s output of 331kW to over 373kW (500hp).
There are no plans for the 302SX to go into production, however Ford is monitoring the reaction of consumers. If enough interest is expressed, a limited number may hit the market.
