Ford heralds return of Rent-A-Racer Mustang in New York
Insiders at Ford have leaked to Inside Line that the Blue Oval’s big announcement in New York next month will be the return of the Shelby Hertz GT350H, a higher performance version of the Mustang GT that will be available for rent through select Hertz dealers around the country.
Ford first did the rent-a-racer thing back in 1966, and while the the 2007 GT350H will feature the same black and gold-striped paintjob as the original, it’ll also have 320 horsepower, 20 more than the average modern day Mustang GT, thanks to new powertrain control enhancements and intake/exhaust tuning. We’ll meet the GT350H in person at the New York Auto Show next month, everyone else will have to wait until this summer to rent one from Hertz.
