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]
