2011 DUB Edition Mustang GT 5.0 for the hip-hop artist Nelly
At the Detroit Motor Show, Ford has revealed a tricked-out 2011 5.0-liter Mustang GT customized by DUB Magazine. The restyled pony car is created specially for the Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist Nelly as part of his upcoming album's artwork.
The idea for the 35-year-old rapper's tricked-out Mustang GT came to life after the artist 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.
The exterior appearance of the enhanced vehicle benefits from a custom gloss black paint job with flat black racing stripes and a Street Scenes body kit backed by a set of custom 22- and 24-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires. The vehicle also features a billet grille, hood scoop, tinted taillights, angel eyes headlights and a Borla exhaust.
In addition to the new outer vision, the interior of the redesigned Mustang GT packs a complete suede and leather design with a custom JL Audio system that includes two 12-inch subwoofers, amps and speakers.
Under the hood, the 2011 Ford Mustang GT boasts a brand-new advanced 5.0-liter V-8 engine, which is capable to deliver 412 horsepower and 390 ft.-lb. of torque. At the same time, fuel economy is projected to be better than the previous model and unsurpassed in the segment.
