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:

The Boss has forged internals to allow the higher rev limit as well. Not sure, but they could even have different gearing in the trans. Just like the V6 and V8 use same trans with different ratios.

Sorry but adding DRs makes it not stock. Stock is OEM tires and everything. But still, 11.7 with just tires is still impressive.
