Joining the 2013 Cobra Jet in Ford Racing’s lineup is a one-off road racer concept named the Boss 302SX. The vehicle will be placed between the Boss 302S and the Boss 302R race car and features Ford’s new School Bus Yellow color. The 302SX is just a concept at this point, but when Ford Racing revealed it at the Performance Racing Industry Show in Orlando, Florida, they confirmed that they were "testing the water for feedback."

The 302SX will feature all of the changes previously seen on the 2013 Mustang Boss 302, as well as a lower front splitter and a massive adjustable rear spoiler. Another unique feature are the 1970-style graphics and the vented hood. The interior leans more towards racing with a Recaro HANS Pro Racer seat, an FIA spec 6-point roll cage, a fire suppression system, a data recording system, a 6-point racing harness, and a quick release steering wheel.

Powering Ford’s newest Mustang concept will is a 5.0 liter V8 engine that uses the same intake manifold found on the new Cobra Jet. The engine delivers a total of 500 HP and will be mated to a 6-speed transmission. Since the Mustang concept is not street legal, Ford has also provided it with a chassis prepared especially for the track. It features an adjustable coilover suspension, adjustable front and rear sway bars, tubular rear lower control arms, and adjustable caster/camber plates. The final element is a new set of 18" wheels combined with Brembo brakes at the front and rear.

What a nice concept for a race car! I love the black racing stripes, it matches the bus yellow paint. It’s very impressive.

I don’t like the front-mounted design of this Boss but just like them; I’m so fascinated with the masculine image of this Boss, and it already looks cool on its graphics and body paint.

Yeah! I also noticed that it looks like a bumblebee on that. However, I’m glad that this Mustang is more powerful than with bumblebee. Anyway, I will surely wait for the other official details of this concept.

It looks too huge on its platform, but I would admit that this vehicle is really one of their best concept muscle cars! I just noticed that it only looks like a bumblebee on its design and style even on its body paint.
