2022 Mustang Shelby GT500-H Models Will Go On Sale This Year

Back in May 2022, Shelby American and Hertz once again teamed up to produce the latest in a long line of high-performance rental Ford Mustang models – the 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500-H. The latest version of those famous “rent-a-racers” – which originally debuted back in the 1960s – carried on that rich tradition by giving a select few folks the chance to rent something that was far more exciting than the average, boring, cookie-cutter crossover or sedan. Soon, those interested in purchasing a 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500-H will get the chance to do so, too.

According to Shelby American, existing 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500-H units will be rotated out of Hertz’s fleet later this year following the expiration of the two entities’ three-year deal, meaning that we’ll soon be able to purchase one from select Hertz Car Sales retail locations. That’s sure to be appealing to pony car lovers and fans of the iconic rent-a-racer in general, though we’ve already seen some of these same machines pop up at various collector car auctions as of late. However, thus far, that list hasn’t included the GT500-H, but rather, the more mainstream GT-H. Those particular models are still quite rare, however, particularly examples equipped with the optional Whipple supercharger.

As for the Mustang Shelby GT500-H, it features a host of upgrades throughout, including gold “Le Mans” dual racing stripes and set of special rocker stripes, along with Hertz Edition and Shelby 60th anniversary emblems, aluminum forged mono-block wheels, performance spec tires, tinted windows, Shelby badges, and both driver- and passenger-side stripes. Inside, Shelby and Hertz logos are featured on the seats, sill plates, and floor mats, with a numbered badge located on the dash.

Under its hood lies the supercharged Ford 5.2L V8 Predator, which has been treated to modifications that increase horsepower from 760 to over 900, making it the most powerful rental car Shelby has ever built. The GT-H, on the other hand, gets nothing more than a Borla cat-back performance exhaust for its naturally-aspirated 5.0L V8 Coyote powerplant, unless equipped with the supercharger upgrade.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    The real shame is these will all be snapped up by collectors for likely more than the regular GT500s sold for new.

    I guess the renters won’t be bringing that car back!
