2016 Ford Shelby GT-H

Fifty years ago Hertz dedicated a program to all the folks who dreamt about owning a racer, but either couldn’t afford one, or who felt too guilty cramming the family into a two-door for the yearly beach vacation. Known as the “Rent-A-Racer,” Hertz is now celebrating the half century mark of this program by teaming up with Ford and Shelby for a tribute to Hertz’s first ever offering: a 1966 Ford Shelby GT350-H.

The new 2016 Ford Shelby GT-H takes its base player, the 2016 Ford Mustang GT and transforms it thanks to the likes of a 5.0-liter V8 engine, new exhaust, automatic transmission and the Ford Racing Handling Pack. For the exterior, a speciality designed body kit featuring a vented hood, carbon fiber splitter and rear spoiler is set off with 19-inch wheels to give the Shelby a mean racing aesthetic. This is all matched with Shelby GT-H badges throughout the body and Le Mans Gold Racing stripes that follow the tradition of the 1966 original. 140 units will be made available at select airports beginning Memorial Day weekend.
