The Shelby GT500-H Is a 900-Horsepower Special You Can Rent by the Day

The Shelby GT500-H Is a 900-Horsepower Special You Can Rent by the Day

Why buy a 900-HP Mustang Shelby when you can rent one from Hertz?

Shelby and Hertz. That’s a very bizarre collaboration, if you think of it. These two companies have teamed up and come up with two special vehicles – the Mustang Shelby GT500-H and the Mustang Shelby GT-H. If this tag-team raised your eyebrows, well, there’s some more surprising news. This isn’t the first time they’ve collaborated to create special rental cars. Their friendship dates back to 1966 when Shelby and Hertz created the GT350-H and the latter offered it to the public via a special program called ‘Rent-a-Racer’. That’s some history lesson for the day, huh?

The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage Will Cost You More than $1,000 Per Horsepower

The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage Will Cost You More than $1,000 Per Horsepower

In fairness, only 50 will be built, so the excessive price does include a bit of exclusivity

BMW’s Hommage lineup launched back in 2008 with the M1 Hommage, a model that essentially celebrated the legendary M1’s 30th birthday. Unfortunately, BMW never brought back the M1 beyond that concept or made a successor to it (unless you count the M8, which we wouldn’t), but the 2015 3.0 CSL Hommage concept will be making a comeback. A wide-eyed, big-grilled, thick-bodied concept from 2015 entering production in 2022? It sounds pretty crazy, and it might be, but wait until you hear how limited and how expensive it’s going to be.

Alpine A610 - Thirty Years of Rear-engined French Goodness

The Alpine A610 was a missed opportunity to create what could have been the only lineup of cars to rival the reign of the 911

The Alpine A610 was as odd as they came. It was the quirky French performance automaker’s last hurrah before the brand was resurrected after 22 years of absence with the outgoing A110. This arguably iconic piece of French motoring from Renault’s relatively unknown performance brand recently celebrated its 30th birthday and reminded us how quirky French automobiles are much loved and celebrated by the automotive community.

Mercedes-Benz C112 - An Abandoned Technological Miracle

This is all you need to know about the most technologically advanced sports car from the 1990s that Mercedes dropped the ball on

The long history of Mercedes-Benz spawned plenty of amazing projects, many of which resulted in some of the greatest road-going and racing vehicles, we have ever seen. You only need to look at cars like the 300SL, 300SLR, CLK GTR, SLR McLaren, and others. There are, however, many cars that never saw the light of day. Among the most obscure projects to come out from Mercedes-Benz’s test facilities is the 1991 Mercedes C112. It had the potential to be the most ground-breaking sports car of the 1990s, but sadly, Mercedes decided not to make it.

BMW and McLaren’s Partnership Could Be Larger Than Anticipated

Will we see another iconic car like the McLaren F1 out of this deal or is there even more to it?

The record-setting and iconic McLaren F1 set a new standard for what a supercar should be, but part of what made all of that possible was the unique BMW-derived V-12 that gave it life. Over the decades since this legendary collaboration, there was nothing noteworthy between the two companies. In April of 2022, however, a new rumor claimed that the two would once again collaborate, only this time they would work together to build an all-new electric sports car platform. Neither BMW nor McLaren jumped on the opportunity to confirm or deny the rumor.

Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 - The Race Car That Cannot Be Raced

The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 will let you experience the full thrill of driving a race car, but without the actual racing

The Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 is one of the craziest spin-offs of the now-discontinued Lamborghini Aventador. While the standard lineup of the Raging Bull is exciting enough for most, those craving the genuine, visceral feel of a proper race car can opt for the radical Essenza SCV12. But, there lies the problem. The Essenza is a track-only race car, but it has no racing series to compete in.

Watch A C8 ’Vette Give A Ferrari 458 Specialé A Run For Its Money

The Prancing Horse has more power, but the ’Vette is packing more torque

It’s only been a while since Chevy started shipping the Corvette Stingray on the other side of the pond, and for the first time ever, they’ve decided to offer it with right-hand drive, serving markets like the U.K, Australia, and Japan. As these things are currently, hot off the oven, Mat Watson from CarWow decided to pit it against a similarly sized Ferrari 458 Specialé to see what’s what. Here’s how it went down.
