Hertz and Penske Racing Introduce Hertz Penske GT

The Hertz Corp. recently introduced the special edition "Hertz Penske GT." This Penske-inspired Ford Mustang GT — with a 5 liter V8 engine — joins other American muscle cars in the Hertz Adrenaline Collection. Available at select U.S. airport locations, the limited edition vehicle was presented on July 5 at Subway Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway. 

"Working with Penske Racing, we're excited to introduce the Penske-inspired vehicle as the newest in a long line of American muscle cars in our rental fleet," said Mark. P. Frissora, Hertz chairman and CEO. "With this addition to our Adrenaline Collection, we are introducing a vehicle with race-car performance enhancements to give customers a unique travel experience."

The Hertz Penske GT joins other performance cars in the Adrenaline Collection, including Ford Mustang GT Premium, Chevrolet Camaro SS (hardtop and convertible), Corvette Convertible and Dodge Challenger R/T.

Enhancements to the Hertz Penske GT include performance upgrades (quad-tip exhaust system, air intake, ECU tuning upgrade), interior upgrades (black Recaro racing seats, Laguna Seca gauge pod, engine bay plaques) and exterior upgrades (black exterior with Hertz yellow racing stripes, Boss 302 front splitter, custom graphics package).

"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, owner of Penske Racing. "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."

In January, Hertz and Penske Racing entered into a multi-year agreement with Hertz serving as a 2013 primary sponsor for select races on the No. 22 Penske Racing car, competing in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Nationwide Series.
