Pic Of The Week: Boss 302 Mustang

We know we're in danger of over-Mustanging PH today, but (to paraphrase Russ Abbot) we love a picture with an atmosphere. And this one has bags of it.

It isn't just the PH Carpool GT500 that has got us all drooly over Ford's pony car either, because last weekend we took this very Boss 302 Mustang along to the Wilton House supercar show.

Given its task of rubbing shoulders with the cream of supercar exotica (think Enzo, Koenigsegg and McLaren), you might have reasonably expected the orange boss t be a little overshadowed, but nothing could have been further form the truth.

It felt quick, sounded great, and drew as many excited squeaks from the crowd as a 'conventional' supercar four times its price would have. You'll be able to read more about our experiences with it next week, but for now please just enjoy the moody wallpapery goodness.

    Maybe but I "get" the car but would never buy one with that rear end.
    I am on the opposite side of that argument. I think the new rear end looks nice. Also, the exhaust cutouts makes some naughty naughty sounds.

    I'm not overly surprised given the garish colours on the Laguna Seca, the facts the 2013 Mustang is getting a makeover and the fact there's a new one coming in 2014. I would guess a lot of people will wait.
    I really do think its more to do with people not getting the point of the Boss 302 especially when comparing HP numbers with GT500.

    Easy enough if you are willing to pay the small premium SOME dealers are charging. I haven't heard horror stories of dealers charging thousands in premiums over MSRP unlike the BMW 1M.
