Hertz are offering a spectacular car rental option at some of its airport locations in the USA.

Auto racing fans and car enthusiasts can rev up their ride with the 2020 Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Camaro ZL1 and 2020 Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Camaro SS in the signature Hertz yellow and black colour scheme with full performance upgrades outfitted by NASCAR’s most successful team.

Throughout November 2019, a limited 224 x custom Camaros rental cars will roll into Hertz airport locations in select cities, including Charlotte, N.C.; Dallas, Texas; Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Ft. Myers, Fla.; Houston, Texas; Las Vegas, Nev.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Miami, Fla.; Nashville, Tenn.; Orlando, Fla.; Phoenix, Ariz.; San Diego, Calif.; San Francisco, Calif.; and Tampa, Fla.

Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Camaro ZL1 – The 2020 Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Camaro ZL1 has a 6.2L V8 engine producing 750 horsepower, with features including a larger Callaway Supercharger; custom Hertz wheels; custom Hertz lighted door sill plates; embroidered headrests with Hertz-sponsored Hendrick Motorsports driver William Byron’s signature and the No. 24 team logo; Hertz fender badges; and a Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports plaque denoting the individual numbering of the 24 custom Camaros.

Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Camaro SS – Equipped with 480 horsepower 6.2L V8 engine, the 2020 Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Camaro SS is optimised with 20-inch satin black wheels; a Performance Upgrade Package inclusive of a Chevrolet Cold Air Intake and Chevrolet Cat-back Dual Exhaust Upgrade System; custom exterior graphics package; strut tower bar with Hendrick Motorsports branding; custom Hertz lighted door sill plates; embroidered headrests with the No. 24 team logo and William Byron’s signature; Hertz fender badges; and a Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports plaque denoting the individual numbering of the 200 custom Camaros.

“We have a tremendous partnership with Hertz,” said Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick. “Cars are my passion, so seeing this program come together is especially exciting for me. We’ve never undertaken a project like this in the history of our team. These custom Camaros are going to be a huge hit with car enthusiasts and customers who are looking for a special experience.”

Hertz is suggesting that “a car of this spec needs a route to match it” and so there is a ‘NASCAR Homelands’ route on their Hertz American Road Trip Planner Beginning at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida and ending at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, North Carolina, it covers some of NASCAR’s most recognisable racetracks, museums and the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

10 stops, over 10 days, and across 1,200 miles on the US East Coast with nothing but NASCAR. The full list of stops on the route are: the Daytona International Speedway, Atlanta Motor Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, North Wilkesboro Speedway, Richard Petty Museum, NASCAR Hall of Fame, Kannapolis, Mustang Owners’ Museum, and the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Ok, Mechtraveller is dedicated to sustainable eco technologies (especially electric vehicles and wind farms, I love wind farms!) but engineering excellence, even full octane carbon-based, is cool. I know this is hardly eco-friendly, but it’s limited impact and sexy. The movement to turn around climate change will never accelerate if it is puritanical.
