Hertz, one of the most recognised names in the world of vehicle hire, has this week announced details of a new car, welcoming a custom 2018 Chevy Corvette Z06 to its rental fleet. Renowned for adding lavish cars to its ever-growing collection, the brand invested in the Chevy to mark its 100th birthday; an accolade any company would want to celebrate in style.
Black and yellow
According to sources, the tremendous car will sport the Hertz colour scheme; black and yellow, being nothing but eye-catching when out on the road.
Continuing this theme throughout the car, the inside will boast black leather interior with yellow contrast stitching, allowing those that hire them to be a constant promotion for Hertz. But, it’s not just good looks this car can offer, showcasing some pretty exciting features under the bonnet. While no additional performance upgrades will be included, the vehicle will enjoy 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, expected to be much in-demand by the adrenaline-seekers of America.
While an incredibly beautiful vehicle, British car hirers will unfortunately not get their hands on the Chevy. Commissioning just 100 of the Hertz-branded vehicles, they will only be available to hire at Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orlando, San Diego, San Francisco and Tampa depots.
“Hertz is a leader in the car rental industry for delivering a premium experience that is fueled by our longstanding commitment to provide our customers with caring and efficient service, and access to a variety of specialty and top-rated vehicles,” said Hertz Senior Vice President of Brand Jayesh Patel.
“We’re thrilled to continue to delight our customers and build upon our legacy of superior service and unique vehicle offerings with our special Hertz 100th Anniversary Edition Corvette Z06.”
How much will renting a 2018 Chevy Corvette Z06 cost?
If you are looking to hire one of these custom vehicles then do not expect it to be cheap. Costing around $199 a day (excluding tax and insurance), these cars are understandably more expensive than your average hatchback.
Let us know what you think, will Hertz get the interest they expect from these custom cars? We would love to hear your thoughts. Share your opinions by commenting on this post.
