The new 5.0 litre Ford Mustang will be featured on Nelly’s upcoming album, but not just any other Mustang. This is a special Mustang modified by DUB Magazine commissioned by Nelly. The Mustang 5.0 V8 is a new variant, replacing the version with the 4.6 litre Ford Modular engine. The new motor makes much more power – 412 horses and 530Nm of torque from a 5.0 litre engine, which are really quite impressive numbers for an engine that isn’t a particularly high-revving one. That’s a whole 97bhp and 90Nm increase over the 4.6 litre, but with only a 400cc displacement increase.
Check out Nelly’s little speech at the 2nd press day of the NAIAS, which I managed to record with my mobile phone:
DUB Magazine took a Mustang 5.0, gave it a gloss black paintjob, a custom widebody design, flat black racing stripes, 22 inch wheels at the front, 24 inch wheels at the rear all wrapped with Pirelli tyres, a Borla exhaust system, a Street Scenes bodykit, Eibach springs and shocks to lower the car, custom window tint, colour-matched exterior parts, a full suede and leather interior with DUB logos, tinted tail lamps, headlamps with integrated “angle eyes”, a billet grille, a hood scoop, a custom JL audio system with dual 12 inch subs, and finally a custom luggage trunk interior wrapped with leather and suede.
