The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca has had plenty of visits to various auction houses in the past year, including one that was sold in January at Barrett Jackson for $450,000.
Ten months later and another special edition Boss 302 appears to be headed under the hammer, this time at the Ford Motor Company Conference and Event Center in Dearborn, Michigan on October 15, 2011. This particular model, nicknamed ’School Bus Yellow’, is a complete one-off edition of the Boss 302 and will be signed by no less than legendary race car driver, Parnelli Jones.
The word is that this particular model could very well be a preview of the 2013 Boss 302, complete with the ’School Bus Yellow’ color scheme and all the corresponding graphics that are similar to that of the 1970 model. Under the hood, this Boss 302 will carry a 5.0-liter V8 engine with 444 horsepower and 380 lb/ft of torque mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
Other features of this special edition Mustang Boss 302 include six-way adjustable Recaro racing seats with "Boss 302" stitched on them and a new gauge pack that measures 0-60 mph times, lateral Gs, and braking performance.
Proceeds from the sale of this one-off Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca ’School Bus Yellow’ will benefit the Henry Ford Health Systems so if you’re willing to shell out serious wad for a good cause - and a great prize, at that - you’re going to need to make serious bids for the opportunity.
UPDATE 10/31/2011: The one-off Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca ’School Bus Yellow’ Edition has been auctioned off this past weekend for an impressive $300,000. The car was bought by Sam Pack, president of Pack Automotive Group in Dallas/Fort Worth, and will be displayed at the Pack Automotive Museum next to other very rare Mustangs.
