In 2016, Ford Motor Company, in partnership with Shelby American and Hertz, revealed a special collection of 2016 Ford Mustang GTs called the Shelby GT-H, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the iconic Shelby GT350-H. Honoring the legacy of the renowned “Rent-A-Racer” program from the 1960s, a limited production of 171 2016 Ford Shelby GT-Hs was exclusively available through the Hertz Adrenaline Collection at selected airport locations across the continental United States.
Remaining faithful to its heritage, the 2016 Ford Shelby GT-H exhibited captivating design elements. Each vehicle featured a sleek black exterior finish, accentuated by striking gold racing stripes—a distinctive hallmark of Hertz vehicles since the 1920s. The iconic “Le Mans” dual racing stripes by Shelby were complemented by rocker stripes bearing the “Shelby GT-H” emblem. Additionally, these cars proudly displayed a Hertz Edition emblem on the front fenders, along with Hertz Shelby GT-H sill plates and a numbered badge, emphasizing their exclusivity.
Currently available on Bring A Trailer is #19 of the 171 examples of the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT-H, boasting a mere 197 miles since its inception. Like all other 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT-H models, this car is presented in Shadow Black with gold stripes over Ebony leather upholstery.
Beneath the hood, a 5.0-liter V8 engine resides, featuring Ti-VCT variable valve timing, an engine oil cooler, and Shelby GT-H reservoir caps. Originally rated at 435 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, the potent engine channels its power to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential with 3.55:1 gearing.
The vehicle is equipped with additional features, including Shelby bodywork and graphics, 19″ aluminum wheels, a Ford Racing handling package, a Ford Performance Borla cat-back exhaust system, selectable drive modes, heated and cooled power-adjustable front seats, navigation, SYNC 3 infotainment, and a Shaker audio system.

This Mustang Shelby GT-H, with 28k miles, comes with a window sticker, two keys, an accident-free Carfax report, and a clean Minnesota title in the seller’s name.
