Hertz Mustang Shelby GT500-H: rental car with 900 hp

Mustang Shelby GT500-H and GT-H from Hertz
The most powerful rental car in the world with 900 hp

Hertz will lease a total of 25 V8 supercharged Shelby Mustang GT500-Hs from summer 2022. There is also a fleet of non-supercharged Shelby GT-Hs. Both versions are amazing.

From summer 2022, the Hertz car rental company will offer what is arguably the most powerful rental car in the world at six stations in the United States: the Shelby Mustang GT500-H has a supercharged V8 engine with around 900hp, gold stripes and performance tires on 20-inch wheels.

Shelby Mustang for rent

The Shelby Mustang is available at airport stations in Fort Myers, Las Vegas, Miami, Orlando, Phoenix and Tampa. Nothing is known about the conditions and costs. Of the 25 cars, 19 are painted Shadow Black. Six commemorate Shelby American’s 60th anniversary in their Oxford White livery.

When Hertz leased Shelby Mustangs in 1966, they sometimes came back with racing stickers.

The combination of black paint and gold vertical stripes is reminiscent of the “Rent a Racer” campaign, for which Hertz ordered 1,000 Mustang GT 350-Hs from Shelby in September 1965. The H stands for the rental company’s special edition. At the time the Mustangs had a 310hp 4.7-liter V8 with 320hp under the hood. Today, the rare manual gearbox versions are particularly sought after and expensive collectibles. RM Sotheby’s auctioned one in August 2021 for US $ 280,000.

Different engine, similar look and also as a convertible: GT-H with five-liter V8.

At six other stations (Atlanta, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Diego and San Francisco) Hertz also offers a more benevolent fleet of powered Mustangs. This Shelby GT-H is available as a coupe or convertible and also features gold stripes. Only these are available in Rapid Red Metallic and Carbonized Gray in addition to black and white. The GT-Hs feature a 5.0-liter V8 that exhales through a sports exhaust. Hood and front apron are optically modified. All-season tires are mounted on the black 20-inch wheels. Lettering and logos indicate the special status of the rental Mustang. The Shelbys will remain on the program for three years.
