While Ford's Shelby GT500 might be seen as the top performance version of the Mustang, the new Boss 302 looks to surpass it. Sure it's down over 100-hp, but the naturally aspirated 444-hp machine is a more able partner on the race track. And now, thanks to some independent testing, it's also proving its worth on the drag strip.
Slapping on a set of drag radials, an unnamed individual too took shiny new Boss 302 to the drag strip and pulled of an incredible 11.72 second time at 117.2 mph. That's a solid half second faster than some of the stock runs and while the drag tires might be considered cheating (un hungh) this is a Mustang after all.
Don't believe us though, check out the video after the jump:
