Rent-a-car company announces deal with Hendrick Motorsports and Callaway Cars
Shades of the Hertz/Shelby rent-a-racer era? Not quite, but Hertz Car Rental and Hendrick Motorsports have announced a production run of 2020 Hertz-Hendrick ZL1 and SS Chevrolet Camaros in Hertz signature yellow-and-black colors.
The cars also will get custom wheels, interior badging and various performance upgrades. For example, the ZL1 cars will have their power boosted by Callaway’s GenThree supercharger setup, which means that instead of 480 horsepower, there will be 750 horses and 739 pound-feet of torque available.
The initial build will be 224 vehicles, with the ZL1s available only in Charlotte, Miami, Orlando, Las Vegas and Phoenix airport locations. The 480 horsepower SS cars will be available in those locations as well as in Houston, Nashville, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Tampa, Los Angeles and San Diego, the companies said.
In addition to the rental fleet, Hertz is staging a contest to give away one of the 480 horsepower SS cars. For details, see the Hertz website.5 comments
