Shelby American and SIXT Rent A Car are about to supercharge your next vacation or business trip! Starting this summer, SIXT will offer its customers the all-new 2019 Shelby GT-S at select locations across the country. Clad in the company’s iconic orange and black, the 600+ horsepower GT-S rental will be powered by a supercharged 5.0L V mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The first 20 Shelby GT-S Mustangs will be available at select Southern California, Southern Florida and Las Vegas locations.
Based on the world-class Ford Mustang, the Shelby GT-S is making history as the first supercharged V8 powered Shelby rental car offered through a national chain. The sports cars will be built by Shelby American at its Las Vegas facility. “The hot new GT-S will make any trip an amazing and memorable adventure,” noted Gary Patterson.
The GT-S has been tailored to maximize the Mustang’s capabilities without sacrificing ride quality. The Brembo brakes have impressive stopping capabilities to match the Shelby’s amazing power under the hood. The exterior features proprietary bodywork, SIXT badges and stylish wheels.
SIXT is a multinational car rental company with about 2,200 locations in over 105 countries. The company has been expanding across the USA since 2011 and is currently the country’s fourth largest rental company. “We’re always looking to grow our fleet with premium cars that bring passion and excitement to the drive,” said Sebastian Birkel, CEO, SIXT USA. “This will be the first supercharged Shelby available to rent and we’re thrilled to offer it exclusively at SIXT.”
Every Shelby GT-S will receive a Shelby serial number and be included in the official Shelby Registry. Once retired from duty, the Shelbys will be available for purchase. Shelby enthusiasts and performance addicts interested in renting, or buying, a Shelby GT-S should visit www.SIXT.com
