Ford Mustang Hertz Penske GT Special Edition Introduced
Available to rent at select US airport locations, the Hertz Penske GT features several performance upgrades, including a quad-tip exhaust system, optimized ECU, 3.55 gearing and Brembo brakes. While power figures haven't been released, the 5.0-liter V8 engine should deliver more than the standard 420 HP.
Exterior upgrades include black paint with Hertz yellow racing stripes, Boss 302 front splitter, GT500 rear valence and a custom graphics package. Inside, the pony gained black Recaro seats, limited edition dash plaque, custom floor mats and door sills, and touchscreen entertainment with GPS and back-up camera.
The Hertz Penske GT Special Edition draws inspiration from the 1966 Shelby GT350H.
"Working with Penske Racing, we’re excited to introduce the Penske-inspired vehicle as the newest in a long line of American muscle cars in our rental fleet," commented Mark. P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and CEO. "There’s nothing more thrilling than hitting the open road in a high-performance, American-built sports car. With this addition to our Adrenaline Collection, we are introducing a vehicle with race car performance enhancements to give customers a unique travel experience."
"It is terrific that a classic American car is being transformed into a one-of-a-kind vehicle inspired by Penske Racing,” said Roger Penske. “The Hertz Penske GT makes us even more excited for what is in store for our multi-year partnership with Hertz, and we are thrilled that our fans and Hertz travelers will have the opportunity to rent this special car."
