You Can’t Buy Ford’s 2016 Shelby GT-H, But You Can Rent It From Hertz

Half a century after the legendary rent-a-racer 1966 Shelby GT350-H, Ford, Hertz and Shelby are joining forces again to celebrate the anniversary with a special edition based on the 2016 Mustang GT named the Shelby GT-H.

This is actually the third time that the three partners have come together to create a special rental car following the Shelby GT-H a decade ago.

Only 140 units of the souped-up Shelby GT-H will be made, all of which can be rented exclusively through Hertz’s Adrenaline Collection at select airport locations, though we’ll have an opportunity to see the car in the flesh at this week’s New York Auto Show.

Built at Shelby American’s Las Vegas assembly facility using a 2016 Ford Mustang GT with the stock 435hp 5.0L V8 as the base, all Hertz specials wear a black exterior paint, set off with dual gold “Le Mans” racing stripes along with rocker stripes with the “Shelby GT-H” nomenclature.

Each car gets a Hertz Edition emblem on the front fenders, a custom hood, carbon fiber splitter and rear spoiler, Hertz Shelby GT-H sill plates and a numbered dash plaque.

To spice things up, the GT-H gains a throatier sports exhaust and the Racing Handling Pack that includes special-tuned dampers, lowering springs, sway bars and a staggered wheel kit consisting of 19-inch alloys shod in high performance Michelin rubber.

You’ll be able to rent the Shelby GT-H from Hertz beginning Memorial Day weekend at the end of May.
