DUB Magazine, Ford, and Nelly have teamed up to debut one of the hottest Ford Mustangs ever! The 2011 DUB Edition Ford Mustang GT was debuted this week at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. This amazing ride will also be featured on Nelly's new album artwork and will tour the country as a part of the 2010 DUB Show Tour.
It's the return of the 5.0 engine, which hasn't been available since 1995. The exterior of the vehicle features a custom gloss black paint job with flat black racing stripes a one off custom wide-body, the first ever wide-body treatment on the 2011 Mustang in the world. The exterior is also upgraded with a Street Scene body kit complete with custom black 22- and 24-inch TIS Modular wheels and Pirelli tires. The vehicle also includes a billet grille, hood scoop, tinted taillights, Eibach springs, Angel eyes fog lights and a Borla exhaust. In addition, the interior is a complete suede and leather with a custom JL Audio system that includes two 12-inch subwoofers, amps and speakers.
“I don’t care where you grew up, everyone knows the Mustang. At some point, you’ve had a conversation about a Mustang – and it was probably one about you wanting to get behind the wheel of one,” Nelly says. “I’ve always loved the Mustang; the vehicle has power to the point where you can’t help but want to hit the pedal. And the newest one? More power, hotter style.”
The customized Mustang GT got its start after Nelly caught a glimpse of the vehicle while inside the walls of Ford’s design studio a little more than a year ago as part of a partnership tied to the launch of the 2009 Ford Flex. Since then, Nelly has collaborated with Ford’s design team and DUB’s customization team to make the Mustang his own while still keeping the vehicle true to its muscle car roots.
