Hertz Rent-A-Racer

The first batch of Hertz Mustang GT350H's are in. The "specially tuned" versions of the GT are available.

For a meager $300/day plus $50 for insurance you can get a black and gold, automatic for your enjoyment.

The horse power and torque are up slightly over the stock version. 325 hp and 330 lb-ft - boosts of 25 hp and 10 lb-ft.

Makes you wonder what "specially tuned" means? They probably have rev-limiters at 4000 rpm and the engine shuts-off when the brake and gas pedal are depressed at the same time.

I'm willing to bet only about 25% of the 500 cars actually make it to their 16,000 mile retirement.

Heck, even there own commercial does not condone the action that is most certainly going to happen.

I KNOW it will happen. I have seen it before.

Place you bets Ladies and Gentlemen.
