Hertz and Peske Racing have revealed the Ford Mustang Hertz Penske GT Special Edition that will join other American musclecars in the Hertz Adrenaline Collection.
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."
