2012 FORD MUSTANG BOSS 302 LAGUNA SECA
Black with Red Stripes and Red Roof
#719 of the 2012 production run and number 578 manufactured in Black.
This one-owner Laguna Seca was purchased from Gwinnett Place Ford Lincoln in Duluth, GA in December 2011. Vehicle was shipped to Indianapolis where it has remained garaged since new. The owner had intended to use it as a track weapon but decided to keep it as a collector since purchase. Vehicle has been stored in a climate-controlled garage and has been driven sparingly. The TracKey has never been programmed. In late 2013, the owner ordered a set of 302S black machined wheels fitted with G-Force Sport Comp 2 tires.
Boss 302S wheels:
Tires: G-Force Sport Comp 2
Original Set of Red Metallic Wheels:
Tires: Pirelli PZero Corsa
Prior to listing the vehicle for sale, it was inspected by The Car Vault in Brownsburg, IN. The inspection report shows a clean bill of health.
Vehicle comes with a clean Carfax vehicle history report, both keys, both splitters, original owners’ documentation including Certification, original calendar, owner’s manuals, and window sticker.
Many drivers and automotive publications regard the 2012 and 2013 Boss 302 among one of the best Mustangs ever created. The focus on raw power and driving experience, being livable as a daily driver while still offering a lot on the track, means that this edition is sought after by enthusiasts. As a good compromise between the regular Mustang GT and the all-out Shelby GT500, the style, handling, and sound of the Boss 302 has solidified its place in the saga of Mustang heritage.
Fewer than 4,000 models were built for each year, meaning that this rare Mustang is highly-sought-after.

The original Boss 302 had a two-year run from 1969-1970. Designed by Larry Shinoda, it offered a 302 cubic inch small-block V8, numerous track-inspired changes, and a unique livery and body. This potent Mustang was built as a direct competitor to the pony’s biggest rival, the Chevy Camaro. The car was such a hit that Ford decided to revive the namesake in 2012.
2012 Boss 302 Features
Born out of the Coyote 5.0 liter engine, the modified version used in the Boss 302 Mustangs is known as the “Roadrunner". An additional 32 horsepower was squeezed out by using a new, unique intake manifold, revised camshaft, and revised cylinder heads, among other tweaks. There’s no supercharger on this naturally aspirated engine as there is on the blown GT500. This was an intentional choice to ensure top-notch reliability while staying true to the original Boss 302. The engine is DOHC with 32 valves with sequential multi-port fuel injection. It requires 91 octane fuel or higher.
With stickier tires and tighter handling, the Boss 302 is ready to help you put that power down to the road in a controllable manner. Most drivers will find that the Boss 302 offers vastly improved cornering and that it keeps the back end more planted through hard turns. The electronic steering is re-tuned for enhanced feedback and turn-in. The suspension is manually adjustable on all four tires, with five different settings of firmness. From the dealer, the tire firmness is set to a more comfortable “2," leaving room to crank up the level to “5” for full track use. The car is also slightly lowered from the height of the base Mustang GT.
To add even more allure while keeping you safe on the street and hot on the track, the Boss 302 comes with two different keys. One is a standard silver key, the other is the red track key, the “TracKey". The TracKey changes some 300 parameters of engine calibration to optimize the set-up for track use. You’ll get TracMode powertrain race calibration and two-stage launch control.
It wouldn’t be a Mustang without a great exhaust note, and the Boss 302 doubles down on making sure you’re always enamored with the sound. In a so-called “surround sound exhaust” format, the Boss 302 actually features a quad exhaust system. There are two rear outlets in the usual positions, plus dual side outlets behind each side skirt. This brings that sound even closer to the driver and provides an amazing aural experience.
EPA fuel economy estimates of 17 city/ 26 highway MPG are actually the same as the regular Mustang GT, but in the real world, efficiency will all come down to how you drive it. And if you’re spending weekends driving hard at the track, expect quite a bit lower.
Known technically as the 500A equipment group, the Boss 302 trim is undoubtedly a variant that was designed for spirited use on the track. While there are enough creature comforts to make it a livable daily driver, there’s nothing luxurious about the cabin. The Recaro seats are 4-way manually adjustable, but you do get power windows, locks, and mirrors. Dark aluminum trim on the instrument panel and a unique gauge cluster further differentiate the Boss 302 from more run-of-the-mill Mustangs. Also unique to the Boss 302 is the black 8-ball-style shift knob on the short throw shifter.
The Laguna Seca trim receives a special rear badge with an outline of the famous racetrack.
You don’t have to make any sacrifices in the cabin compared to a regular Mustang GT though. You’ll still get SYNC and a 4.2” color LCD display instrument cluster with MyColor illumination and Track Apps. There are steering wheel-mounted controls for cruise, audio, and the information screen. The closest thing to an elegant or luxurious touch for this interior is Alcantara microsuede on the steering wheel and optional sport seats.
The only options, apart from the addition of the Laguna Seca package, were the Recaro bucket seats, which came with a Torsen helical differential, and Boss 302 car cover with embroidered floor mats. The Torsen diff came standard on all Laguna Secas.
The Laguna Seca trim, equipment group 501A, turns the Boss 302 into an even more aggressively tuned animal. It’s named for the famous Laguna Seca Raceway in California (the Spanish phrase Laguna Seca literally translates to English as “dry lagoon”).
From the rear seat delete alone, you can tell that the Laguna Seca is a car made for the racetrack, not ferrying multiple friends to the grocery store. About 18% of the 2012-2013 Boss 302 Mustangs were Laguna Secas, making them even more rare and sought-after. You can immediately differentiate the Laguna Seca in appearance by noting the aggressive front splitter and larger rear spoiler. A peek inside the cabin will let you know that the rear seat is in fact removed, replaced with a cross-brace for increased torsional rigidity.
The Laguna Seca package added features such as:
