The original Rent-A-Racer was initiated by Hertz in 1966 with the help of Ford and Shelby Automotive as partners. It stemmed 1,000 Mustangs outfitted with Shelby Performance goodies to be rented by the public looking for a bit of adrenaline while on vacation! A success for all involved, the original Mustang Shelby GT350 Hertz is one of the most iconic and collectible Shelby’s ever produced! Fast forward to 2006, another 500 GT-H 40th Anniversary Coupes would hit the rental market as performance inspired Shelby’s. And just last year on the 50th Anniversary, Hertz, Shelby Automotive, and Ford Performance would team up to manufacture only 140 Special Edition GT-H coupes loaded to the gills with all Premium GT hardware! As part of their “Adrenaline Collection”, they would be offered in limited rental cities across the United States! After one year of very selective rental service, they are now being offered to the public to join private collections! Make no mistake that these rare performance examples will soon be considered one of the rarest Shelby’s of modern time!
We are very excited to have 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT-H Rent-A-Racer #88 offered for sale on our showroom! Finished exactly the same from the top-of-the-line Mustang GT Premium Package in Shadow Black with Hertz Gold racing stripes over Ebony Leather interior, Ford Performance and Shelby Automotive once again brilliantly enhanced them to outstanding appeal! Starting with a special polycarbonate GT-H hood with vents, custom upper & lower bumper grills, carbon fiber front chin splitter, rocker ducts, & rear Shelby GT spoiler; GT-H body side stripe, HERTZ fender emblems & GT-H badging, SHELBY rear lettering, C-pillar SHELBY emblems, Faux Shelby GT-H gas cap, under hood GT-H cap kit and special oil dip stick, outside mirror puddle lamps, Ford Performance Track Handling Package with special tuned dampers, sway bars, and lowering springs; 19” staggered aluminum wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S performance tires; Ford Performance by Borla cat-back stainless steel exhaust system with chrome tips; Ford Performance Calibration Power Pack #1 engine computer tuning for added horsepower and torque! The stout package with the Coyote 5.0L 32-Valve DOHC V8 Ti-VCT engine under the hood offers 448 horsepower and 416 lb. ft. of torque through a 6-speed Select-Shift automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and 3.55 Limited Slip rear axle! Further yet, the driver modes provide Normal, Sport +, Track, and Snow/Wet track possibilities! Even the electronic power steering assist allows Normal, Sport, or Comfort options for better feel to driver feedback!
Additional amenities include automatic driver & passenger climate control, heated/air conditioned seats, navigation system, Shaker AM/FM/Sirius audio system, full power accessories, illuminated door sills, traction control, fog lamps, high definition headlights, keyless entry, pushbutton start, and remote start, rear defrost, cruise control, on-board computer & track timer, Bluetooth technology, and so much more! It leaves nothing to be desired! Our example served the Tampa, FL area since arriving new in May 2016 with just 15 miles on the odometer. Today, it has only 16,146 miles logged. It will retain all original Shelby plaque under the hood & dash plaque identifying this example as CSM16H0088, all Hertz identifying rental stickers, one key & tag, special GT-H floor mats, wheel caps, Ford window sticker, original MSO, copy of original Hertz title from Florida, and special numbered picture worthy of framing! Unique to our car is the lack of the front mounted license plate frame, a clean CarFax report with no damage history, and nearly flawless presentation of the car itself! The balance of the Ford factory 3yr/36k Basic & 5yr/60k Powertrain warranty remain. Fresh for a complete professional detail and engine oil change, it couldn’t be more ready to hit the streets and show circuit with its new owner! This is a very unique, short-lived chance to own a piece of automotive history! Act Quickly!!
