Hertz gets Shelby Convertible
Hertz will offer a convertible version of the GT-H Mustang, part of the “Rent a Racer” program started in 2006 with the fastback version of the GT-H. The project harks back to the original Hertz GTH Shelby Mustang of 1966. Like the originals, the cars in the current program are painted a distinctive dark color, with gold racing stripes from hood to trunk, and a unique modified grill.
The 2008 GT-H Mustang is powered by a 319 hp 4.6 liter V-8 driving through a five-speed transmission. Suspension modifications include lower springs, tuned shock absorbers, a brace between strut towers, and performance anti-roll bars.
500 will be produced for Hertz.
