    Got 4 of the Hertz rental vettes in today.

    So today at work we got in 4 2008 Corvette ZHZ's. Every one that stopped by and saw them thought they were some special edition high priced vettes. There just high priced. They're the new Hertz rental cars. Not the prettiest corvettes I've ever seen and I don't think they'll last too long once customers start renting them.

    They have a custom front air dam that makes them look like they have braces, custom wheels that are hidious, a poorly done black stripe, and a spoiler similar to the Z06's.

    My cell phone doesn't show enough detail to show the flaws so I didn't bother with a close-up of the black strip.

    From a distance they look good but up close is where they lose the general Corvette sexyness.










    Had to through this one in for comparison sake.

    How much a day?

    Is the traction control button still there?

    They removed it from the Mustang. So we just had to unbolt the center consol and find the harness before the nitrous instal. . . . . . .

    God, those wheels are hidious!
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    Yeah traction control is still there along with the suspension adjustments. It's a normal corvette except for the additions of hideousness.

    The Hertz guy at the dealership I work for wasn't sure yet but he's guessing in the neighborhood of $120 to $150 a day plus mileage.

    The Corvette ZHZ

    Hertz has done it again. Exclusively built for Hertz, the Corvette ZHZ brings the mighty Corvette to even higher standards. Sporting a six-speed paddle shift transmission, the ZHZ makes the most of the dual mode exhaust delivering 436 horsepower. And, these impressive features are wrapped inside a uniquely packaged Corvette that features Hertz’s iconic yellow and black, colors that have a storied past in sports car history.

    Production of the ZHZ Coupe will be limited to 500 models making it an instant classic. It’s another one of the many exciting cars that you can reserve from the Hertz Fun Collection®. And like all Fun Collection vehicles, it comes equipped with SIRIUS Satellite Radio. Now is your chance to get in the driver's seat of sports car history.

    For the car enthusiast:
    • Special limited edition built by GM
    • LS3 6.2L V8 aluminum-block engine with dual-mode performance exhaust and 436 horsepower
    • Magnetic Selective Ride Control - Tour or Sport Mode
    • Goodyear Eagle F1 EMT Supercar tires
    • Larger brakes with cross-drilled brake rotors
    • EPA estimated 25 MPG highway
    • The Coupe models are the most aerodynamic Corvettes ever



    The Corvette ZHZ are available for reservations at select major market locations in the U.S.

    LOL again that's the protective plastic. Also noticed after having it sitting right beside another C6 that it sits slightly higher.

    Put a dry fogger nozzle in the air box on 150 and that is the true definition of a rental car. I don't care if it's a Cadi or Vette.

    I would probably lean towards YES. I'm willing to beat their insurance company probably made sure that they limited the top speed at the very least.
