Meet chassis #638 of 747 in Ford’s limited edition stable of track-focused Boss 302 Mustangs. This Laguna Seca edition model has just 3,700 miles (5,954 km) on its 5.0-liter V8, which by the way happens to be paired with a six-speed manual transmission.
According to the seller, the car was previously sold through Bring a Trailer back in December 2019, but the winning bidder failed to follow through with the purchase. Back then, the winning bid stood at $33,750. Last we checked, the highest bid was at $26,500.
Now, if you’re wondering why you might want to spend that kind of money on a 7-year old Mustang, well, a quick look at the specs should prove revealing.
The exterior is finished in black with contrasting silver accents on the hood, rear wing, mirrors and side panels. Then we have the Laguna Seca parts, such as the Boss 302R-borrowed stiffer manually-adjustable shocks and larger anti-sway bars, but also the 19-inch wheels, Brembo calipers at the front, Recaro sports seats inside (trimmed in Alcantara), a Torsen limited-slip rear differential and the rear-seat delete.
Additional features include SYNC with Bluetooth, a CD stereo, air conditioning and cruise control.
The car’s 5.0-liter V8 engine was factory-rated at 444 HP and 380 lb-ft (515 Nm) of torque, making this more powerful than the standard Mustang GT. Meanwhile, the rear-wheel drive/manual gearbox combo may not make this the fastest-accelerating car you can by at this price range, but it should prove delightful on the track.
When new, this 2013 Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca commanded a sticker price of $50,465.
