Introducing a special-edition Camaro that honors the past and
signifies the heritage.
2012 marks both the 100th anniversary of the Chevrolet brand and the 45th anniversary of the first Camaro.
The 45th Anniversary Special Edition, offered on the two top trim levels — 2LT and 2SS — and for both coupe and convertible styles, commemorates Camaro's lineage and its 21st Century revival.
The exterior signature of the 45th Anniversary Special Edition is its unique hood and decklid stripes in red and gray that contrast with the Carbon Flash Metallic paint, as well as badges located beneath the front fender emblems. Deep silver foglamp and taillamp bezels and 20-inch wheels(4) add to this edition’s powerful, high-end look. And the commemorative spirit continues in the interior with the 45th Anniversary logo on the Jet Black, leather-appointed seats, steering wheel and sill plates, and red, white and blue stitching on the seats, steering wheel, shift knob.
European-version 45th Anniversary Camaro SS
2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302
“Like the original from 43 years ago, this version of the Mustang Boss 302 also is limited to just two years, which concludes at year’s end, and as Ford initially promised,” said Daitch.
"The abbreviated run of the track-oriented Ford Mustang Boss 302 was by design" says Ford Motor Co. COO Mark Fields. Speaking April 6, 2013 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Palm Beach, Fla., Fields told Speed TV the two-year availability helps protect the Mustang's value for collectors. “We really want to preserve the value of those vehicles,” Fields said on Speed.
The Boss 302 was revealed at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in 2010 ahead of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance as a street-legal race car that saluted the original 1969 version. “It's a race car you can put a license plate on,” the legendary Parnelli Jones said at the unveiling in 2010. He raced the original to victory in the 1970 Trans-Am season opener at Laguna Seca.
The Mustang Boss 302, powered by a 444-hp 5.0-liter V-8 with 380 lb-ft of torque, has made waves across the automotive world thanks in large part to its impressive track performance and aggressive styling. The vehicle is balanced from the driver's perspective, accelerates quickly, handles cornering in a track situation well, and is significantly lighter by comparison to its other Mustang counterparts. All of this has lead many Mustang enthusiasts to heap upon it incredible praise with some, like the renowned race car driver Randy Pobst, going so far as to label it the greatest Mustang ever built.
While it will certainly be sad to see the end of the run for this exceptional vehicle, there is also some upside to this production stoppage for us Boss 302 owners. The limited production run will help increase the vehicle's value down the road, an impressive feat considering that this Mustang has retained the highest reseller value of all current gen iterations up to this point already, and will also make for those that Mustang enthusiasts are already lucky enough to own even more special in both theirs and other driver's eyes.
A tribute to the original 1969 BOSS 302 which the 2012 model is based on:
