Want your ride to rule the roost? You’ll need a champion of an engine to match all the upgrades you’ve made inside and out, so why not go big—and go Boss. Ford’s making it easy for you: the 444 horsepower 302 cubic inch V8 from the new Boss Mustang can be all yours, separate of its sexy ‘Stang wrapper, for a mere $11,999.
That cash buys you an engine that’s been beefed up from top to bottom in order to deal with the stresses of racing and high-performance use, so it can certainly handle whatever stuntin’ you plan on putting it through. But no matter how impressive its performance cred is…no answer to the question “What’s under the hood?” is quite as cool as, “It’s a Boss.” [Shout-out to Ford Racing!]
