Just like Pontiac and 50Cent, Ford has teamed up with rapper and actor Nelly to help them promote the new Mustang 5.0 V8 which will go on sale later this year. In return Nelly gets a customized DUB version of the car which he will feature in his new album’s artwork. Prepared by DUB Magazine, this special ‘Stang comes with a a gloss black exterior paint job, flat black racing stripes and 22-inch Pirelli tires in the front and 24-inch tires in the rear.
Nelly’s tricked out Mustang is also very feature-rich inside. The interior is a complete suede and leather design with a custom JL Audio system that includes two 12-inch subwoofers, amps and speakers, a must for every pimped-out ride! Specially when it belongs to a rapper.
The rapper is quite excited about his new ride: “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,” says Nelly. “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.”
2011 Ford Mustang brings back the legendary 5.0 badge with its all-new four-valve Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) V8 engine which churns out 412 horsepower and 390 ft.-lb. of torque. Performance-minded drivers may also order a powerful Brembo braking package with 14-inch vented front discs from the GT500 Mustang, unique 19-inch alloy wheels and summer performance tires.
