Have you ever wanted to rent a race car? Well, you may get a chance with the launch of the 50th Anniversary Edition Ford Shelby GT-H. Ford, Shelby, and the Hertz car rental company have teamed up to produce a top-of-the-line vehicle that harkens back to the 1966 Ford GT350-H.
“The 1966 Ford Shelby GT350-H became a legend from the moment it was introduced,” said Joe Conway, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American in a recent Ford press release. “Ten years ago, the 2006 Ford Shelby GT-H earned the same ‘rock star’ status when it was introduced at the New York Auto Show. We worked closely with Ford Performance to make the 2016 Shelby GT-H the most exciting Mustang ever to wear the iconic Hertz black and gold livery.”
Where Can I Rent a 2016 Ford Shelby GT-H?
Starting on Memorial Day Weekend, 140 Ford Shelby GT-H Mustangs will be available to rent at select airports in the continental United States through the Hertz Adrenaline Collection to celebrate 50 years of iconic speed and driving. As of posting, the GT-H will be available in Atlanta GA right near Akins Ford. You can check the Hertz page on this great vehicle for updates as Memorial Day gets closer.
Performance highlights for the 2016 GT-H
Not only does the GT-H look great in the Hertz colors of black with dual gold racing stripes, but there’s a lot of power and precision going on under the hood and in the interior as well. The 2016 Ford Shelby GT-H will come with a 5.0-liter V8 engine, the Ford Performance Handling Pack and chrome tipped exhaust, and a host of unique Shelby GT-H performance and appearance enhancements. A Shelby carbon fiber front splitter, rear spoiler, polycarbonate hood and hood vents, and rocker panels with carbon fiber accents will contribute to speed, handling and style.
Features like a front Hertz emblem, Shelby GT-H front grille emblem, and Shelby GT-H floor matts merely add to the exterior style of this perfect speed-fanatic toy.
This 50th Anniversary Edition Ford Shelby GT-H won’t be available here at Akins Ford, but we are excited about possibly seeing it around the Mall of Georgia or other Atlanta attractions.
