Want to get yourself into a new Ford Mustang, but don’t want to wait in the thousands-long Aussie production queue? As part of the 2000 extra Mustangs brought over this year, Ford has delivered a small number into the hands of Hertz, and the cars will be making their way into the company’s Adrenaline Collection.
Hertz has a long love affair with the Mustang in the US, starting with the 1966 GT350H rent-a-racer, and now that Australia finally has the new Mustang it only makes sense that Hertz would get on board here as well. In Hertz’s airport locations in Sydney and Melbourne, you’re now able to secure a rental in a 2016 Ford Mustang GT Fastback, albeit only an automatic rather than a manual.
The rental company is also smart enough to realise that while the Mustang technically has four seats, the rear spots aren’t exactly useful for anything more than a short trip to the shops. Who cares, though, when you have that gutsy 5.0-litre V8 under the bonnet?
That rental will cost you anywhere between $215 and $230 per day, depending on whether you pay early or when you pick the car up. The Mustang joins Hertz Australia’s other Adrenaline Collection cars like the Renault Megane R.S 265 Cup, the Toyota 86 and a couple of Porsches. [Hertz]
