2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302

One of the measuring sticks of greatness is “mine is bigger than yours”. Another is “mine cost more than yours”. But one of the most fun ways to measure greatness is…”mine is way faster than yours AND costs less than 1/10, 1/4, or 1/3 the price”. Smart and sexy.

What am I talking about? Mustangs of course. Specifically, the lap times of the 2012 Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca around the track it is named after. I know this is old news, but once in a while it is nice to be reminded of just how awesome the team at Ford  did when they put together the Boss 302.

Here is a partial list of the cars, lap times and who tested them at Mazda’s Laguna Seca Raceway;

Year / Make/ Model                      Lap Time            Driven By

2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 LS          1:39.50              Road & Track

2010 Porsche 911 (997) Turbo S           1:40.11               Road & Track

2009 Audi R8 V10 5.2 FSI                     1:40.20              Road & Track

2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302               1:40.21               Motor Trend

2008 Nissan GT-R                                  1:40.45               Motor Trend

2010 Mercedes SLS AMG                      1:40.74              Bern Schneider

2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS                    1:45.70               Motor Trend

For the semi-complete list, head on over to FastLaps.com. But keep in mind, it is a fan website, kind of like Wikipedia, so the list isn’t definitive or absolute, or up to date. But, to keep things in perspective, Motor Trend pitted the 2011 Mustang GT with all the options, except the glass roof, against a brand new M3 with the Competition Package. And the difference between the two performers was onion skin thin.

    Boss 302 to all other rivals,
    “I’m your Huckleberry.” ;-)

  2. Anyone who says Val Kilmer can’t act has never seen Tombstone. Boss 302 after the thrashing was over, ” You’re no Daisy.”  :)

  3. A Double Tombstone reference!!!! The only thing left is to ask all rivals “Are you gonna skin that smoke wagon or just stand there and bleed?”

    This is more of a mustang bullshit comment. Any of the other cars 2011 or 2012 would kick the Mustangs ass all over the track. When are you Mustang people ever going to understand that a mustang is an over rated piece of shit. The only thing it needs to compare to is a chevy camaro.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  27. Y sobre los precios que plantea OVH, sólo puedo estar agradecido y feliz de que una persona, varias, un día tal cual hoy, fueran emprendedores y abrieran brecha para que otras personas como nosotros, pudieran trabajar con un servicio tan robusto, de calidad y estable como el que ofrecen, pero eso si, no tengas la menor duda de que en sus principios, los precios que ahora plantean, de lejos serían los que hoy podemos disfrutar.
