• COMING SOON: Hertz-Penske GT Mustang

    The folks at Hertz have revealed their newest Mustang rental car. The Hertz Penske GT will be offered as part of the company's Adrenaline Collection. As a regular Hertz customer (and a guy who travels multiple times a month), I'm looking forward to some seat time in the new GT Mustang. In fact, it wasn't that long ago that I tested out Hertz's 2012 model.

    According to a press release making the rounds, the car will feature a Quad-Tip Exhaust System, Air Intake and ECU Tuning Upgrade, 3.55 Gears and Brembo Brakes. Other features include Black Recaro Racing Seats, Laguna Seca Gauge Pod, Limited Edition Interior Dash and Engine Bay Plaques, Custom Floor Mats and Door Sills, and Ford's Touchscreen Entertainment System with GPS and Back-up Camera. And on the outside it will feature a sharp looking Black exterior with unique Hertz yellow racing stripes, Boss 302 Front Splitter, GT500 Rear Valence, Upgraded Suspension and Handling, Custom Graphics Package, and Custom Hertz Faux Gas Cap.

    "It is terrific that a classic American car is being transformed into a one-of-a-kind vehicle inspired by Penske Racing," said Roger Penske. "The Hertz Penske GT makes us even more excited for what is in store for our multi-year partnership with Hertz, and we are thrilled that our fans and Hertz travelers will have the opportunity to rent this special car."

    According to reports, the Mustang will only be available at 15 rental locations in the U.S., and will cost about $180 a day with a 100 mile limit before additional fees are added to your bill. As of this morning, a quick check didn't yield any results for the car on Hertz's reservation system. Hopefully soon!
