As a throwback to the famed Shelby GT350-H "Rent-A-Racer" program of the 1960s, a total of 140 2016 Ford Shelby GT-H's will be available exclusively through the Hertz Adrenaline Collection at select airport locations in the continental United States.

"The1966 Ford Shelby GT350-H became a legend from the moment it was introduced," said Joe Conway, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American. "Ten years ago, the 2006 Ford Shelby GT-H earned the same 'rock star' status when it was introduced at the New York Auto Show. We worked closely with Ford Performance to make the 2016 Shelby GT-H the most exciting Mustang ever to wear the iconic Hertz black and gold livery."

Fifty years ago, Carroll Shelby and Hertz saw an opportunity to put customers in the driver's seat of high-performance special edition Shelby's. Ford supplied the new Mustangs with V8 engines and mostly automatic transmissions, Shelby added extra performance and style and Hertz gave the public access to a unique driving experience through what was known then as its new "Rent-A-Racer" program. The companies repeated the same formula for the successful Ford Shelby GT-H program in 2006. Today, the story of the Shelby/Hertz "Rent-A-Racer" is legendary and the first two generation cars are among the most coveted by collectors worldwide.

Shelby American, Ford and Hertz repeated history to give the 2016 Ford Shelby GT-H a very classic, muscular look with additional performance capabilities.

"Our goal was to give everyone a chance to add some fun to their travel with a distinctive American pony car," said Doug White, Ford Performance Parts manager. "So Ford Performance and Shelby American sharpened the handling, improved the performance, sweetened the exhaust note and added distinctive Hertz styling to the Mustang. Anyone who rents a limited edition Ford Shelby GT-H will enjoy a very special driving experience."

The 2016 special edition Ford Shelby GT-H marks another Hertz car rental milestone in offering high-performance and specialty vehicles throughout the company's 98-year history, and today through its Adrenaline, Dream Cars and Prestige collections.
