Henderick Motorsports Will Be Tuning These Rental Cars Up To Amazing Heights

Chevrolet Camaro Hertz

Hertz has over the years delivered on some cool rental programs, usually circulating around the Ford Mustang. But not this time. This time it’s about the Chevrolet Performance enthusiasts, as the rental company has announced a special collaboration with Hendrick Motorsports to bring upgraded 2020 Camaro SS and Camaro ZL1 muscle cars to select cities for rent.

Each Camaro will be fashioned in the signature Hertz yellow and black color scheme with custom wheels, interior badging and full performance upgrades outfitted by NASCAR’s most successful team. Because who said rental cars have to be boring?

The 2020 Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro SS is customized with 20-inch satin black wheels, Chevrolet cold air intake and cat-back dual-mode exhaust, 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 NASCAR driver William Byron’s signature, Hertz fender badges, and a Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports plaque denoting the vehicle’s individual production number. Only 200 Chevrolet Camaro SS Hertz-Hendrick rental cars will be made.

The Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports 2020 Camaro ZL1 will be outfitted with a 6.2L V8 engine with 100 extra horsepower, totaling 750 hp, thanks to a larger Callaway Supercharger. And like the Camaro SS mentioned above, the ZL1 will also feature 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 vehicle’s individual number. Only 24 Hertz-Hendrick Camaro ZL1s will be made.

Throughout Fall 2019, Hertz will begin rolling out these special Camaros in airport locations in the following cities. They are: Atlanta, GA, Charlotte, NC, Dallas, TX, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Ft. Myers, FL, Houston, TX, Las Vegas, NV, Los Angeles, CA, Miami, FL, Nashville, TN, Orlando, FL, Phoenix, AZ, San Diego, CA, San Francisco, CA, and Tampa, FL.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.
