Click for gallery of 14 high-res images from the show floor

The Autoblog crew was on hand to witness the introduction of the 2007 Shelby Hertz GT350H "Rent-a-Racer", and Carroll Shelby himself climbed out of the 'stang to talk about his latest creation. Prior to the car's debut on stage, a quick video clip was played that showed the proper way to return the Rent-a-Racer to Hertz, with opposite-lock power oversteer apparently being an approved method of navigating the return lanes. The clip ends with Carroll in the driver's seat, stating "now that's what I call a rental car" -- very cool.

Our live shots of the GT350H are located after the jump - just click on the thumbs to see them in high-resolution glory. We hope ya like 'em.

      awesome car, but why would you rent somthing like this to someone, when if you think about it, "rent a racer" if this car gets into the wrong hands, your talkin bout a big problem in the street racing industry

      Too bad all Ford can do is reinvent the past.475 hp will not make it to the car,read the fine print its a estimate,a long shot,may be diffrent from actual production.Like the charger.Name and glamour.If you want a muscle car that is really in production and delivers,get a new gto.It does not look like the past,it really has its power,and is a sleeper like most of the first muscle cars.

      This car seems to be all hype. We need more than 7500 of the new GT-500s produced, less time between the show car hype and actual production and a return to the original Mustang philosophy of affordable performance.

      Even if this car is going to be available after Hertz is finished with them, Unless you are Donald Trump or the likes,,, You wont be able to afford 1. Look at the Gt500 on ebay, Dealerships are selling just the "Buying Rights" for that car, for over $10,000 USD, That is just to get in line to purchase the car, then you have to Break out the money for Full Sticker.
