Ford says its 444bhp ’Stang out-handles the best Europe has to offer. True or false? There’s only one way to find out…

But as radical as that sounds, that's still not the end of this story. As rabid as the standard Boss 302 is, there is still another level in its hierarchy available to true petrolheads - the Boss 302 Laguna Seca. Featuring all of the standard car's upgrades, this version is a bridge between the full 302R race car and the regular Boss 302.
Even more committed to track life, but still fully street-legal, the Laguna spec car has a whole raft of extra equipment - and a $7,000 price hike - to mark it out. Lightweight racing wheels - even wider at the rear than the standard car - plus R compound tyres start the spec that also includes an enormous front splitter that could double for a snow plough, a rear spoiler, a torque-sensing rear diff, a cross-brace where the back seat used to be, brake-cooling ducts and a red roof panel and decals.
