Yesterday, Ford issued a press release announcing a new partnership with Hertz to make a performance-modified version of the Mustang GT, named the Shelby GT-H, available for rent. The program is similar to the "Rent-A-Racer" program of the 1960s. As part of the program, 140 Shelby GT-H models will be available exclusively through the Hertz Adrenaline Collection.

“The 1966 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.”

Full details are net yet available, but we do know that the Shelby GT-H will be powered by a 5.0-liter V-8 engine, and will feature the Ford Racing Handling Pack which includes special-tuned dampers, lowering springs, sway bars, and a staggered wheel kit.
