If you take one thing away from this review, let it be this: The 2012 Mustang Boss 302 is not just another limited-edition Mustang with tape strips and a few extra horsepower. This is a serious attempt to re-create the original Boss 302 of 1970 -- a racing car that you can legally drive on the street.

For the press preview, Ford brought us out to the Laguna Seca raceway, where Parnelli Jones won the 1970 Trans Am season opener in the original Boss 302, and invited us to drive some laps in the new $40,995 Boss 302 back-to-back with a BMW M3 -- proof that someone in Ford's PR department has cojones the size of a washer-dryer set. How does the Boss compare to the Bimmer? I'm going to make you wait on that. First, let's talk about how the Mustang got Boss-ified.
