Shelby GT-H Mustang now available to rent in US

Special edition Shelby GT-H Mustang is available to rent from US car hire brand Hertz

Hiring a car when you go on holiday to the US can be an odd experience, as you're likely to get hold of a model that's never been on sale in the UK and handles like a boat - but now you can rent a special edition Ford Mustang from Hertz in certain cities.

Driving in the USA: top tips

The Shelby GT-H gets tuned dampers, lowered springs and new 19-inch aluminium wheels, plus a gold and black paint job. It's a throwback to the 1960s, as the original Mustang was also offered as a rental car back then in the same colours, also tuned by Shelby.

There's also a Hertz logo on the wings and sill plates and a Ford Performance exhaust. There aren't many other changes, as the car gets the same 5.0-litre V8 engine as the standard Mustang with 429bhp and 542Nm of torque.
