Washington D.C. Auto Show – Boss 302 & Laguna Seca

The StangMods team was at the D.C. auto show this weekend to catch a peek of the new Boss 302. It’s been 42 years since Ford released a factory Boss 302, so it’s arrival has created quite a stir within the Mustang community. Such attention is well deserved, with a 444hp naturally aspirated 5.0L V8 under the hood the new Boss is capable of taking on the best sports cars from manufacturers around the world. In person the new 302 is a thing to behold, with factory exhaust cut outs that dump right ahead of the rear wheels, the 302 is ready to hit the track right off of the lot. The Laguna Seca edition features an extremely clean rear seat delete package with a body color X brace in it’s place. Not only did Ford bring the standard Boss 302 and the rare Laguna Seca to the D.C. Auto Show this year, but a few capitol area Mustang clubs were in attendance with generous offerings of tastefully modded pony cars. Another car of interest in attendance was the very same Saleen Mustang from Transformers the movie, seen below next to Bumblebee. Overall the show was a great improvement over recent years. Ford had one of the busiest booths in the entire show, a sure fire sign of things to come.
