Hertz have been doing the car rental thing going back to the Ford Model T days. One of their most historic offerings from a muscle/pony car viewpoint was the 1966 Shelby GT350 Hertz model, which was eventually sold to the public as the GT350H. Rental cars being what they are, there were rumors of engines being pulled, rollbar being fitted and parts replaced for racing. Not exactly recommended for a modern vehicle, but it’s not stopped Hertz offering a bunch of 2020 Hertz-Hendrick Camaro ZL1 and SS models for rental for the more discerning.

Starting in October 224 examples will be available which will come in the form of a 2020 Hertz-Hendrick Camaro in the guise of a ZL1 with 750BHP or an SS with 480BHP. Both will be dressed in signature black with yellow stripes running down the length of the car, with a few other yellow accents for good measure. The cars themselves being a team up between Hertz and NASCAR Cup Series champs Hendrick Motorsports which will also add performance upgrades.

As for the specifics, the ZL1 has a 6.2-liter V8 with a Callaway Supercharger, increasing the power to 750BHP. The Hertz-Hendrick extras will include custom wheels, lit door sill plates, embroidered headrests and a bunch of logos on the fenders and inside. The SS model has a 6.2-liter LT1 V8, with a slight increase in horsepower to 480BHP. Performance upgrades here include a cold air intake, cat-back dual exhaust upgrade system, 20 inch black wheels, Hendrick Motorsports strut tower bar and same logo decoration of the ZL1.

These vehicles won’t ultimately be available to buy, like those of the 1960s, but customers can enter a sweepstake which will allow five finalists to take part in a driving experience with Hendrick driver William Byron at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, which includes a tour of the Hendrick works and other goodies. Each of the five finalists will receive a coded key, with the one that can start a 2020 limited-edition Camaro SS, getting to keep the car. Tempted?

If you want to jump on this offer, these Camaros will be available at airport locations across the US.
