Report: Shelby to bring back rent-a-racer Mustangs with Hertz

Shelby Ford Mustang

You may soon be able to get off an airplane and rent a Shelby at a Hertz location at an airport. Shelby American is considering bringing back its ‘rent-a-racer’ program that offers high-performance Ford Mustang GTs for the enthusiast consumers.

The move is likely to be made near Shelby’s 50th anniversary and could launch as early as next spring The Shelby cars would be offered in two traditional configurations: black and gold and white and gold.

Shelby hasn’t really finalized the program and is currently gauging interest (we’re pretty sure there is an interest).

Hertz has been Shelby’s historic partner for the rent-a-racer program. In 1966, Shelby teamed up with Hertz to offer 1,000 units of the high-performance Mustangs. 40 years later, the program came back with the GT-H.
