Rental cars are not race cars….If you believe that, you should probably stop reading now. If you thought modern rental cars are slow, imagine renting one in 1965. That’s why Carroll Shelby and Hertz joined forces to create the 1966 Shelby GT-H. This high-performance Mustang was legal to race in many events, so it became known as the “Rent-A-Racer”. The problem is that Ford engines look mostly the same, so many rental cars were returned with base-model engines after a weekend’s worth of work.
The program was revived after 40 years, with supercharged examples available for special order. This new 2019 packs every luxury option available on a Mustang GT and adds a 700 horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter. The transmission is a six-speed manual with a Hurst shifter. Other goodies include a 3.73 Torsen differential, B&O 12-speaker surround sound, and magnetic suspension. This combination won’t happen again anytime soon, so click the button below for all the details and stay with us for more great deals from Wayne Akers Ford.
