Hertz adds another Ford Focus ST-H to its fleet as its popularity grows

Article by Christian A., on October 22, 2013

Hertz and Ford have quite a history with unique rental cars as their partnership started back in 1918, when the rental company was founded. In 1918, Hertz leased plenty of Ford T models and in 1966 the exclusive GT350H Mustang. The history continues with the 2008 Mustang Shelby GT-H. The Hertz Mustang black with gold stripes and personally signed by Carol Shelby were also very popular.

The latest vehicle to arrive at Hertz is the Ford Focus ST-H, a black hot hatch with gold stripes and wheels. The new Focus ST-H will be available in the Netherlands.

Due to great success Hertz now adds a third copy to the fleet. As expected, the Ford Focus ST-H is powered by the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine developing 250 hp (184 kW), can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.5 seconds and has a top speed of 248 km/h or 154 mph.

Just like the standard Focus ST, the Focus ST-H comes with ST bumpers, side sills a new central exhaust ST system and gold-finished wheels. Inside, we find black Recaro leather sport seats, a sports steering wheel, aluminum pedals as well as many innovative technologies such as SYNC. The Ford Focus ST-H is available for rent at Hertz for 90 euros or around $123 per day. [source: Hertz]

Spectaculaire Ford Focus ST-H groot succes - Hertz voegt extra exemplaar toe aan Fun Collection

Ford en Hertz delen een rijke traditie met unieke huurauto´s. Al in 1918, toen Hertz werd opgericht, verhuurde het bedrijf volop T-Fords, in 1966 de exclusieve Mustang GT350H en in 2008 de Shelby Mustang GT-H waarvan er twee in Nederland werden ingezet.

De speciaal voor Hertz gebouwde zwarte Mustangs, met gouden stripings en persoonlijk door Carol Shelby gesigneerd, waren zeer geliefd. Ford en Hertz hebben afgelopen augustus in Nederland gevolg gegeven aan deze traditie met de spectaculaire Ford Focus ST-H, een pure, zwarte hot hatch met de kenmerkende goudkleurige stripings én wielen. Wegens groot succes voegt Hertz nu een derde exemplaar toe aan de vloot.

De Ford Focus ST-H is voorzien van de 184kW (250pk) sterke 2.0 EcoBoost motor, heeft een topsnelheid van 248 km per uur en accelereert in 6,5 seconden van 0 tot 100 km/u. Deze 5-deurs hatchback heeft een sportief exterieur met ST bumpers, sideskirts en een centraal gepositioneerde ST uitlaat. Het met zwart leder afgewerkte ST interieur is voorzien elektrische verstelbare Recaro voorstoelen én een Recaro achterbank. De Focus ST-H is verder voorzien van vele innovatieve technologieën zoals SYNC, het geavanceerde connectiviteitssysteem van Ford.
