The 50th Anniversary Edition Ford Shelby GT-H of this “Rent-A-Racer” includes a special run of 140 units that can only be rented exclusively through Hertz’s Adrenaline Collection at select airport locations throughout the United States. Combining spine-tingling performance in the classic black and gold stripe combo, the Ford Shelby GT-H is the perfect rental vehicle to take your vacation or business trip to the next level, becoming available Memorial Day weekend 2016.
First introduced in 1966, the Shelby American, Ford Motor Company and Hertz collaboration isn’t new in the slightest. Ford originally supplied the 1966 Mustangs with a V8 engine, Shelby modified these cars and Hertz provided an avenue for the “average joe” to drive these amazing machines. Again, in 2006 with its retro, throwback styling, the GT-H was again offered in that classic black and gold color combo to Hertz dealers around the nation.
Becoming quite the icon in both the 1966 and 2006 versions, the GT-H needed to have the performance and styling to back up the legacy. The 2016 version is no slouch either, with the included 5.0L “Coyote” V8 borrowed from the GT, unique Shelby Carbon Fiber Front Splitter, Shelby GT-H Polycarbonate Hood with Heat Extractors, Upper and Lower Grille, Rocker Panels with Carbon Fiber Accent Plates, Rear Spoiler and that iconic gold striping to tie it all together. Ford Performance also included their Handling Package and Cat-Back Exhaust System with Chrome Tips to give it that signature Mustang growl that we have all know and love.
