2011 Ford Mustang DUB Edition enters production

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 6, 2010

Two months after order books were opened for the DUB Edition Mustang, American builder Roush revealed that the vehicle has started production at the Roush Vehicle Assembly area.

Roush has yet to divulge the official date of when the cars are expected to arrive in dealerships. The DUB Edition is based on the new 3.7l V6 Mustang – which means that the cars get a brand new engine. This also means that the Roush crew didn’t modify the powerplant.

The Mustang is enabled to develop 305hp and 280 ft.-lb. of torque, but will be slightly better than the production series because of tweaks made on all other aspects of the vehicle.

For example, the addition of a front fascia and front splitter has improved the aerodynamics and the appearance of the car. The exterior of the car can be described as menacing but this is enhanced further with the choice of four colors: Black, Grabber Blue, Race Red or Ingot Silver.

The DUB rides closer to the ground due to the lowering springs. The V6 engine is controlled by a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

The car rides on 20-inch TIS wheels with Pirelli performance tires. This package is priced at $3,599, plus $100 for shipping. The Edition is offered in coupe, convertible or glass-roof body styles.

Fritz Wilke, Mustang brand manager, noted that the Ford Mustang is the most customized vehicle in the world, adding that its collaboration with DUB has pushed the boundaries further.

He remarked that Ford is proud of its relationship with DUB and Roush, adding that the cooperation between the two entities has helped 2011 DUB Edition Mustang V-6 become more attractive to a new target market.

“Working with Ford and Roush is an honor and has been a dream come true for DUB,” said Myles Kovacs, president and co-founder of DUB magazine. “The Mustang is such an iconic muscle car and has always been a customizer’s favorite. The DUB Edition Mustang stays true to its roots, but I think we’ve successfully brought a ton of hustle to the muscle.”

About the 2011 Mustang V-6

For 2011, Mustang is available with a lightweight, all-new high-performance powerplant. Displacing 3.7 liters, the double-overhead-cam (DOHC) 24-valve V-6 uses Ford’s Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) to produce remarkable power output –
305 horsepower and 280 ft.-lb. of torque – while still achieving up to 31 mpg highway.

Drivers can get the most out of the new V-6 engine using either an all-new six-speed manual or automatic transmission. With either choice comes the flexibility and fuel economy benefit of six forward ratios.

The 2011 Mustang has also received enhancements to its chassis to maintain the outstanding balance and driving behavior Mustang owners expect. Combined with state-of-the-art safety and technology features, the 2011 Mustang sets a new standard in the sports coupe class.
