No helmet or roll bars required.  So who will be the first with track time? 8)

Don, let's all get together and rent them all at once, for the ultimate Shelby Showdown at Willow Springs or other fun road course. 

I wonder if there's an extra return charge for bald tires and fried brakes?

Hmmm, rental locations do not seem to be anywhere near event locations like Indy or where NorCal likes to play.  A bit suspicious.  ::)

I wonder what they'll say when you show up with a trailer so you can save the mileage fee on the way to the track. Don't forget the tinfoil to blind the GPS antenna. I wonder if they'll scan the OBDII on return to check the top speed.

Big brother IS watching. Im confidant when you rent this car, there will be disclosures on racing/abuse/speeding, etc. By signing the contract, your on the hook for any damages, and possible fines, etc. When I rented a car for a trip to Texas last year, I unknowingly drove on a toll road. Later, at home two weeks later I received a 'ticket' for 16 bucks. IF I did not pay it, my Nevada drivers license would be compromised. Of course I paid it. Lesson learned.
Past owned Shelby's:
1968 GT-350--Gold
1970 GT-500--#3129--Grabber Orange.
Current lifelong project:
1969 Mustang Fastback/FOX chassis, 5 speed, 4 wheel discs, with a modern Can-Am 494 (Boss 429), Kaase heads, intake with a 1425 cfm 'B' Autolite Inline carb, ala Trans-Am style…Whew!!

Hertz  had a checklist for the 06 07 16s that was pretty thorough.  Renting this 900 HP beast I assure you that this list will be extensive
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

Remember, Ford's SYNC is a monitoring system too. IF you go in for service, and your SYNC tells the dealer you were racing, speeding, etc guess what happens? Warranty VOID.

So what is joy of paying to drive a 900 HP vehicle unless it is for show(off) and not go?    If you were thinking of spending a $1/4 mil to get the 2022 Shelby KR with the same Shelby design and power, this would be the best investment in full use test drive before purchase.  Not a fun deal for a rental but you can say you always say that you did drive a 900 HP car though you never were able to review its capabilities. 8)

I would rent it for 399 a day, put it on a trailer and take it to car shows, showing everyone that I have the self control not to drive it.....not !

Just noticed that the 450 HP HERTZ hood's are much different than the SIXT Shelby hood's

The GT500H hood is completely unique to the others

GT500H hood looks like the same used on the Shelby (American) Signature Edition GT500SE. 8)
