A new hockey stick graphic featuring reflective stripes is added to the new
Boss, calling back the 1970 Boss 302. 2013 Boss 302 and Boss Laguna Seca models
feature new School Bus Yellow paint, honoring Parnelli Jones' 1970 Trans-Am
championship car prepared by Bud Moore.
"Everything we did for 2013 is consistent with and links directly back to our
1970 heritage. The reflective stripes and hockey stick graphic in particular
mean something to Mustang enthusiasts," said Dave Pericak, Mustang chief
engineer. "Last year, we proved the car had what it takes to perform, and this

The reflective stripes on Boss come to life when lights hit them, similar to how
they did in 1970 on the Mustang Boss 302. The new stripe follows the classic
hockey stick motif by going over the fender and extending down the body panel.
Boss Laguna Seca has new Sterling Gray accents and will be available in vintage
School Bus Yellow and black paint offerings, complemented by hockey stick
stripes and gray interior rear cross-brace. Gray also sets off the front grille,
mirror caps and rear pedestal spoiler, while Laguna Seca rear badging and unique
two-tone gray and silver wheels round out the exterior accents. Unlike the
previous model, the roof will not feature colored accents.
Similar to the redesigned base Mustang lineup, the front end offers a more
powerful design with a more prominent grille. A more powerful splitter and
functional hood extractors add to that look. Boss Mustang has new signature
lighting, with standard HID headlamps and LED-surround taillamps.
The 2013 Boss also offers a unique functional design feature in the grille with
removable covers where fog lamps would be. For improved cooling on track days,
the covers can be easily removed with a screwdriver.
Additionally, the rear end features a high-gloss black panel that connects the
taillamps. The taillamps deliver a smoked appearance that matches up with the
sinister look up front.
