2013 Boss 302S goes into production - photo

The wing does look smaller. Maybe it's a 302R?

I could be mistaken, but the photos I saw of the 302R for 2010-2012 had the hockey stick stripe kit whereas the 302S had the c-stripe. So maybe its a 302R?

There were two Boss 302R cars built for the 2010 GS class. They are both shown in the documentary video. One had 1969 stripes and the other had 1970. The 2012 race cars were built with 1969 stripes and the 2013 will be build with the 1970 stripes, not including any special builds FR may have made.
 
Also of interest is the fact that theyre not running the tiger racing hood if it is a 302S. Its the stock hood. Maybe the racing rules make them do that since the.production cars now have vents?

2012 BOSS 302 LS 541
I was talking to one of the Ford Engineers at the Mustang Roundup this year and he mentioned the aerodynamics of the 2013's were a lot better than the 2012's. The 2013's may not need the same wing or Tiger hood to accomplish the same amount of down force. He also talked about the importance of balance the front and rear of the car. i.e. Running a Tiger hood and a LS front splitter with just the LS rear wing would unbalance the downforce between the front and back.

Dude. What are these extra coolers!? Oil and Trans? The one on the left has a ton of surface area! I just installed the 2012 oil cooler a few months ago...

Carbon driveshaft, lightweight bumper beams, more coolers and ducting, better dampers straight off the shelf, camber plates...FRPP has made a lot of improvements for the 2013 302S!

Here is a photo from Rehagen of the first one they got in--I don't think the wing is any different. Just a weird angle on that first pic w/ the trunk up.

Wow. How small is that rear sway bar? And I like the front bumper bar...

When you run stiff rear springs you don't need much rear sway bar.

Cool car. I hope enough survive that there will be some nice used ones on the market someday. :D
