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.
