2012 Mustang Boss 302 TracKey

Ford Racing has come up with a very cool optional extra for the 2012 Mustang Boss 302.

It’s called the TracKey and it can turn your ordinary Boss, already very potent with 444 hp, into a track ready monster.

Here’s how it works: When you go to your dealer asking for the TracKey they install a second control module on the engine and program the key for it. So when you fire up the car with the special key, it changes 200 parameters in the car’s ECU, increasing low-end torque and turning the potent but well-mannered stock Boss into a competition-ready track car.

This car has a red Boss logo. To start the car with the normal setting applied you just have to use the original key with the black Boss logo!

As part of the TracKey software package, Ford engineers also devised a two-stage launch control feature similar to that used on the Cobra Jet race car. Using a combination of steering wheel buttons, drivers can set the tach needle to a desired launch rpm. Floor the throttle and the engine will rev to the preset rpm until the clutch is released, helping aid acceleration and vehicle control from a standing start.
