Got $350 a day to spare? That’s the reported rental rate for the Shelby GT350-H rental car ccording to photographer Devin Comiskey. Peering through (and over) the fence at Shelby’s Las Vegas facility, Cominskey snapped up all the photographs and information he could get.
Comiskey reports that reps at Shelby told him the cars will be available for rent for $300/day plus $50/day insurance. Customers will be allowed 100 miles per day, and charged $0.25 per mile over that limit. The way we see it, 100 miles is plenty (who can make 400 quarter-mile passes in one day anyways?).
Other security measures have reportedly been installed to prevent tampering with the engine and other components. In the 1970s, people were known to swap engines in and out of GT350 rentals, as well as weld roll cages to the chassis.
The cars will see between 16,000 and 18,000 “rental” miles before they are sent back to Ford for distribution to selected dealers to sell to the general public. Like the original GT350-H, they post-rental vehicles are likely to sell for top dollar. Like many limited production sports cars turned rentals, it’s likely these cars will have a waiting list for their entire rental life and then sell for a six figure dollar amount.
