Along with the new 2011 Mustang GT 5.0-liter V8, Ford also took the covers off a track version of its updated pony car called the BOSS 302R in honor of the 40th anniversary of Parnelli Jones' 1970 Trans-Am championship in a Mustang BOSS 302 prepared by Bud Moore Engineering.

Set to replace the Mustang FR500C, the BOSS 302R features the GT's new 5.0-liter V8 engine coupled to a six-speed manual transmission and comes equipped with a roll cage, race seats, safety harness, data acquisition and race dampers/springs, and a Brembo brake and tire package.

The base Mustang BOSS 302R racer retails at $79,000.

If you're looking for something more hardcore, Ford also offers the M-FR500-BOSS R1 that's eligible to compete in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series (formerly known as KONI Challenge), starting with the season-opening race in Daytona on Jan. 29, 2010.

Priced at $129,000, this version features a sealed high-output race engine with an upgraded cooling system, a close-ratio six-speed transmission with integral shifter, a seam-welded body, race suspension/KONI dampers and ABS brake tuning, race performance exhaust and a high-speed balance one-piece driveshaft.

Ford said that a total of 50 BOSS 302R Mustangs will be built by the firm's racing division with first deliveries anticipated in the third quarter of 2010.

$79,000 doesn't seem too bad for a fully functional race car. Those Panoz race cars go for around there correct? Hope they offer that color on the regular GT.

Not bad at all. The only cheaper factory race car is the MX-5 Cup Miata, at 60k. The 302R's a little more expensive than the FR500S used in the Mustang Challenge (75k), but the FR500S isn't eligible for anything else. I'm wondering why they don't just replace the FR500S with the 302R and offer a factory exchange or something.

The Grand Am trim level is a lot better priced than the previous FR500C though. Pretty sure it's about 50 grand less.

Here's to hoping they do a road-going Boss 302.

^ Agreed. Something like 450 horse, 3200 lbs, slightly more tuned track pack...
