Rent a Shelby

By Deane Barker on April 12, 2006

Hertz Rent-a-Shelby is back: Soon, you’ll be able to rent a really fast Mustang from Hertz, just like in the 60s.

[…] Hertz customers will again get the chance to rent a Shelby. This time, 500 black-and-gold Shelby GT350s will have 325-horsepower engines and high-performance suspension. A standard Mustang GT has a 300-horsepower engine.

Hertz will not be renting out the Shelby GT500 which goes on sale this summer with a 475-horsepower engine.

“Putting those in the rental fleet would be like putting a match to gasoline,” said Stone.

Yeah, but 325-horsepower is no problem, apparently.
