HERTZ AND SHELBY AMERICAN ANNOUNCE THREE-YEAR CUSTOM CAR PARTNERSHIP

ESTERO, Fla. and LAS VEGAS - May 10, 2022 Hertz and Shelby American announce a three-year custom car partnership, kicking off with exclusive 2022 Shelby edition Ford Mustangs. Beginning this summer, this special production run of history-making vehicles will be available for rent at select Hertz locations across the U.S.

  • For the first time in history, consumers will be able to rent a special Mustang Shelby GT500-H with 900+ horsepower via Hertz at select airport locations.
  • New models combine Shelby's legendary performance with rental car giant Hertz to create limited-edition fastbacks and convertibles.
  • The exclusive Shelby GT-H models celebrate the 60th anniversary of Shelby American.

The collection includes Mustang Shelby GT500-H fastbacks modified with 900+ horsepower and Ford Shelby Mustang GT-H fastbacks and convertibles, each created specifically for Hertz. The vehicles pay tribute to the original “Rent-A-Racer,” the legendary 1966 Shelby GT350-H, and builds on Hertz's legacy to give customers the unique opportunity to drive elite, high-performance vehicles they can't access anywhere else.

The Mustang Shelby GT500-H will be available in Fort Myers, Las Vegas, Miami, Orlando, Phoenix and Tampa. The Mustang Shelby GT-H convertibles and fastbacks will be available in Atlanta, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco and Tampa.

“Shelby American and Ford Motor Company changed the perception of American sports cars, starting with the Shelby Cobra in 1962,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American. “Shelby later teamed with Hertz to create the 1966 Shelby GT350-H, which immediately became one of the most exciting rental cars in the world. Together, we made history again with both a reborn Shelby-GT in 2006, 2007 and in 2016. Now we're going even further with the first Mustang Shelby GT500-H, which is the most powerful rental car that Shelby has ever built.”

“Hertz and Shelby American have created driving magic again,” said Stephen Scherr, CEO of Hertz. “This partnership has made automotive history many times over the years, and we look forward to future collaborations that will continue to both push limits and delight our customers with exciting cars and experiences.”

Each of the 2022 Shelby Mustang Hertz models will be instantly recognizable with unique styling enhancements that celebrate a rich performance heritage. Nineteen of the Shelby GT500-H fastbacks will wear shadow black exterior paint and six, to honor Shelby American's 60th anniversary, will be clad in oxford white. The Shelby GT-H fastbacks and convertibles will be available in rapid red metallic, oxford white, carbonized gray and shadow black exterior paint. All will be set off with gold “Le Mans” dual racing stripes and set of special rocker stripes, along with Hertz Edition and Shelby 60th anniversary emblems. Inside, Shelby and Hertz logos are on the seats, sill plates and floor mats; a numbered badge will be on the dash and under the hood. The supercharger on the Shelby GT500-H is gold hued for Hertz's livery.

Starting with Ford's world-class Shelby GT500, the 5.2L fastback boasts 900+ horsepower, aluminum forged mono-block wheels, performance spec tires, tinted windows, Shelby GT500-H badges, driver- and passenger-side stripes and much more. Shelby cut 30 pounds by replacing the stock hood with a vented, ultra-light dry carbon fiber one that is also much stronger.

As with previous models, the 2022 Ford Shelby GT-H will include a Borla cat-back performance exhaust for the 5.0L V8. Both convertibles and fastbacks will have staggered wheel kit. The Shelby GT-H rides on 20-inch aluminum wheels wearing all weather Michelin tires and is also fitted with a unique Shelby-designed deep-draw hood, upper grille, fascia winglets and taillight panel.

Shelby American will complete the cars at its assembly facility in Las Vegas and document them in the official Shelby American Registry. With production limited and exclusively destined for Hertz rental fleets across the country, the special-edition cars will give Hertz customers a truly exclusive driving experience.
