Hertz Selling 100th Anniversary Corvette Z06 Fleet Soon

Hertz Corvette Z06 C7

Special-edition 2018 Corvette Z06s made in honor of Hertz’s 100th anniversary, wear yellow paint with black stripes.

For a few decades now, rental car company Hertz has offered, among other fine Chevrolet cars and trucks, a few high-performance options. The most famous of these, of course, are the black-and-gold Hertz Shelby Mustangs from the Sixties, the 2000s, and as recent as 2016.

For the company’s 100th anniversary in 2018, though, Hertz tapped Chevrolet for a special project: the 100th Anniversary Edition Corvette Z06. Only 100 were made for the celebration, and all were offered in 14 cities around the country. And soon, they’ll be ready for purchase.

The Hertz Corvette Z06 is all about appearance, as nothing was changed to the supercharged, 655-horsepower, 655-lb-ft of torque 6.2-liter V8, nor to the eight-speed automatic each one has. The special edition ‘Vette instead wears yellow tintcoat with a pair of black stripes running from front to back on the outside, along with a set of black aluminum wheels all around. The interior, meanwhile, is black with yellow stitching, plus Hertz badging and a plaque celebrating the company’s 100th anniversary.

Though no set time of arrival at Hertz Car Sales has been given beyond “soon,” the company says only a handful of dealers in their sales channel will receive an allotment of the Hertz Corvette Z06. When they do arrive, financing can be had through the dealership, just like your regular Chevy dealer. Let’s hope a few of these special ‘Vettes continue to hit the road like they did when you could get them from the rental counter.

Since launching her professional writing career nearly a decade ago as a fashion blogger, Cameron Aubernon has written for a handful of online and print publications on a wide variety of subjects, including expat issues, fashion, music, and, of course, the automotive industry. The automotive expert was even the editor-in-chief of a popular online lifestyle publication, where she reviewed luxury cars and interviewed fellow automotive enthusiasts.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive journalist is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist, Club Lexus, LS1Tech and Mustang Forums, among others.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
