Mazda has added a new Boss to the BT-50 line-up, slotting a tougher-looking model above the existing GT flagship.

Priced at $55,990 drive-away, the new BT-50 Boss gets a new eight-speaker Alpine audio system, including independent tweeters in the a-pillar for a 'pleasant upper range sound'.

Otherwise, the car shares its specification with the BT-50 GT. That means it gets black leather seats, a central-locking tailgate, a tub liner, power mirrors, power-adjustable front seats and privacy glass.

Outside, the Boss is offered exclusively in Snowflake White Pearl Mica paint offset by all-black accessories, including a blacked-out grille, door handles, mirror caps, sports bar and side steps. The wheels are also blacked out 17-inch, eight-spoke units.

In case the world doesn't know you're driving a (the?) Boss already, there's a new decal running the length of the car's flanks.

Power comes exclusively from a 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo-diesel making 147kW and 470Nm, mated with a six-speed automatic transmission.
