Ford and Hertz are usually the two companies putting out some killer rental car, but now the rental car company SIXT wants in on the game. Ford worked with the company to come up with a new version of its Mustang muscle car. The result was the Shelby GT-S. It’s a supercharged orange and black rocket of a muscle car.
Under the hood of the Shelby GT-S lurks a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine. The makes 600 hp and is mated to Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission. That transmission forces all that power to the rear wheels. If you want to do an awesome burnout in your rental car, we know what you should get.
In addition to the engine, the car gets retuned suspension, a cat-back exhaust, Brembo brakes. The exterior has been revamped, too. The hood features what’s called a “deep draw” for air intake. The fascia has been refined a little to make it more aggressive, there are 20-inch wheels, and Ford added a spoiler.
Only 20 of the models will be produced. The cars will be available in Southern California, Las Vegas, and Southern Florida. SIXT has 55 locations nationwide. The cars will do their rental car duty and then be up for sale at some point in the future. How much they will cost is yet to be seen.
