2019 Ford Shelby GT-S Mustang supercharges the rental car experience

Shelby is building a limited run of 20 supercharged Mustangs you can get on loan through Sixt rent-a-car.

Manuel Carrillo III
A Porsche 911 S brought Manuel Carrillo III home from the hospital after he was born, so it's no surprise his lifelong trajectory has centered on cars, leading him to a robust career creating rich automotive media for publications prior to joining CNET.

The Southern California native briefly lived in Sydney, and is proud to have developed a barely passable Aussie accent. He also serves on the board of directors of the Motor Press Guild. When not reviewing cars or nerding out on OEM premium audio, you can find manual-labor-averse Manuel doing his best to convince his closest friends to fix the very Porsche that delivered him home.

Shelby unveiled its GT-S Mustang Thursday in Gardena, California. The car will be available to rent via Sixt rent-a-car.

Under the hood lies a supercharged, 5.0-liter V8 pumping more than 600 horsepower through a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The limited-edition rental gets model-specific striping.

The new Shelby also features Sixt badging.

The black-and-orange theme inside and out mirrors the rental car brand's colors.

Two different color schemes will be offered.

It's probably safe to assume Sixt doesn't want you doing burnouts like this with your rented Shelby Mustang.

The orange-and-black scheme looks especially sinister at sunset.

Only 20 of these cars will be available to rent, at Sixt locations in Los Angeles, Miami and Las Vegas.
