2012 Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca
Tonight at the 40th Anniversary Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector Car Auction event in Scottsdale, Mustang history was once made again. The one of a kind Grabber Blue 2012 BOSS 302 Laguna Seca edition sold for $450,000.
This year the one-of-a-kind factory-painted Grabber Blue 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca sold to the highest bidder with none other than racing great Parnelli Jones providing commentary from the auction stage with Ford’s Mustang team. It is the only 2012 Grabber Blue Boss 302 Laguna Seca we will ever build,” said Ford’s Mark Fields.
This Boss 302 Laguna Seca – a one-of-one production unit – was built specifically for auction at Barrett-Jackson. In addition to the unique Grabber Blue body color, it features distinctive black accents on the roof, mirrors and spoiler, special wheels and C-Stripe, Recaro seats with Grabber Blue seat embroidery and Rear X-Brace, and a Grabber Blue grille surround.
At the Barrett Jackson Charity Auction held in Scottsdale, Ariz, the Mustang brought more money than the Camaro.
The 2012 Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca grabbed $ 4,50,000 for Juvenile Diabetes research foundation whereas the Chevrolet Camaro convertible raised $ 2,25,000 for David Foster Foundation along with the opportunity to drive the car at the 100th Indianapolis 500 parade in May.
Barrett-Jackson says it helped raise nearly $4 million for 20 local and national charitable causes during the 40th Annual Scottsdale Auction over the weekend.
