Fast forward to 2016 and the Hertz Shelby partnership is back, having spawned this car—the 2016 Shelby GT-H, which celebrates 50 years of the famed Rent-A-Racer. The GT-H makes its grand debut at this week’s New York International Auto Show.
Only 140 of these high-powered pony cars will be built, and all will be available exclusively for rent through Hertz’s Adrenaline Collection at select airports. Business travel just got a lot more exciting.
They certainly don’t disappoint on looks either. The 2016 Shelby GT-H cars come dressed in the signature black-and-gold double racing stripes with gold rocker stripes, a unique Shelby vented hood, and carbon fiber front splitter and spoiler. Special badging debuts throughout, including in the grille, on the fenders, trunk lid, headrests, sill plates, and floor mats. One thing is for sure, you won’t soon forget you’re in a GT-H.
Need to drive one? The 2016 Shelby GT-H cars arrive at select airports nationwide in time for Memorial Day week.
