“I think we’ve successfully brought a ton of hustle to the muscle.”
That’s a quote from Myles Kovacs, co-founder and president of DUB Magazine. He’s talking about the special DUB-Edition 2011 Mustang V6, which will be available this fall.
DUB and Ford got together with Roush to customize the Mustang with:
- 20-inch TIS wheels with Pirelli performance tires
- Roush front fascia and splitter
- Roush quarter-window louvers and windshield banner
- Roush lowering springs
- Coupe, convertible, or glass roof body style
- Six-speed manual or automatic transmission
- 3.31:1 rear-axle ratio for spirited acceleration
- DUB logo embroidered in front headrest and DUB stripe package
- Black interior
- Choice of four exterior colors: Black, Grabber Blue, Race Red, or Ingot Silver
In short, what we have here is a Mustang designed to appeal to the hip-hop crowd. “The Ford Mustang is the most customized vehicle in the world, and this collaboration pushes the boundaries even further,” said Fritz Wilke, Mustang brand manager.
Unfortunately, all I see here are boundaries that have been pushed too far. This is sure to be an overpriced Mustang V6 with no extra performance behind it. All bling and no sting.
While pricing hasn’t been released yet, I’d wager that it’ll be dang close to the 5.0 GT’s, which for the money seems like a better deal; I don’t care what crowd you hang with.
For an example of a ‘Stang DUB did right, check out the 2011 DUB Edition Ford Mustang GT, created by DUB, Ford, and Nelly. The exterior of the vehicle features a custom gloss-black paint job with flat black racing stripes and 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 wrapped in Pirelli rubber. The vehicle also includes a billet grille, hood scoop, tinted taillights, Eibach springs, angel eyes fog lights, and Borla exhaust. The interior is completed in suede and leather with a custom JL Audio system that includes two 12-inch subwoofers, amps, and speakers.
Now that’s a pimpin’ ride!
Is the DUB-Edition Mustang V6 a stud or a dud?
