More details from someone who rented one today-


Definitely a base GT (seats). Does have the borla active exhaust thing. Carbon fiber hood and bits.
Interesting they use the GT seats and not the GTPE seats

Not sure I understand the value proposition here.
Well….. it SHOULD be good publicity for Ford, Hertz and Shelby.

But since none have any mention of them online, I’m not sure what they’re thinking.

All three should be advertising this car. And they should send them to the car reviewers to see if the suspension upgrades help.

Missed opportunity for sure.

My guess (speculation) is that the European Shelby GT didn’t sell well so Shelby made a deal with Hertz.

I read online someone rented one of these for cheaper than a model Y!

Cheaper to o buy and if they redid the suspension and wheels, that’s half the point of a GTPE.

Still ironic since the PE has a bit more torque.

As for why they're not advertising, maybe they're all embarrassed?

Kinda sad he didn’t show the frunk. I’m curious if the hood design changes the usefulness of the frunk at all.

Looks like something from the 70s 😁

Only today I was just thinking if I was too old for stripes over the bonnet, roof & boot - came to the conclusion……….yep!

😂

The video I saw appeared to feature the Borla Fakexhaust.

Only two sound options on the video I saw…… which is kinda odd.

Should be super easy to have literally hundreds of sounds.

lol... so Shelby couldn't sell them to actual customers so they turned them into rentals? 😂
Pretty sure it’s just a deal like Hertz did with the GT350H in the ‘60s. 🤷‍♂️🐩

They were asking $25k for an appearance package. That’s a heavy ask.

Also disappointing because they seemed to promise early on a Shelby version for the US that would (of course) include power upgrades.

I guess this means they gave up?

Based on the zero pictures posted from our European friends here, I’m not sure they sold many of the limited 100 run.
