Hertz offers 900 BHP Shelby Mustang as rental

Hertz claims that the Shelby Mustang GT500-H is the "most powerful rental car ever built by Shelby".

Car rental platform Hertz has announced a three-year partnership with Shelby American to rent out tuned Mustangs to customers across 11 cities in the USA. The partnership pays tribute to the "Rent-a-Racer" program from 1966, which offered customers a Ford Mustang GT350H.

As part of the new partnership, Hertz will be offering customers a chance to rent a Shelby Mustang GT500-H fastback. The Shelby-tuned muscle car packs a 5.2-litre supercharged V8 engine producing 900 BHP. It comes with forged aluminium monoblock wheels, performance-spec tyres, tinted windows, a Borla exhaust and a carbon fibre bonnet which cuts out 14 kg of weight compared to the standard model.

There will be a total of 25 Shelby Mustang GT500-H models available for rent. Of the 25, 19 will be offered in Shadow Black with Gold stripes, while the remaining 6 cars will be painted in Oxford White with Gold stripes - in honour of Shelby American's 60th anniversary. The 900 BHP rental will be offered in Miami, Orlando, Fort Myers, Tampa Bay, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

Apart from the 900 BHP Mustang GT500-H, Hertz will also offer a more toned-down version in the form of the Shelby GT-H. This model will be powered by a 5.0-litre V8 producing 451 BHP. The Shelby GT-H will be offered in various colour options. The Shelby Mustang GT-H will be available in Atlanta, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Tampa Bay, Miami, Orlando, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Fransico & Pheonix.

As per reports, Hertz will offer the Shelby Mustang GT500-H and GT-H on rent from June for US$399 / day and US$99 / day, respectively.
