2009 Chevrolet Corvette Hertz ZHZ Convertible
Why This Vehicle is Special
The 2009 Chevrolet Corvette Hertz ZHZ Convertible, like the one we have here at we have here at Skyway Classics, is one of those unique Corvette’s that was built exclusively for Hertz Rental Car. The Corvette ZHZ’s were first introduced in 2008 as part of Hertz’s “Fun Collection.”
These Corvettes were part of a larger group of rental vehicles made up of cars like the Ford Mustang, the Nissan 350Z and the Shelby GT-H. The intent behind these rental cars was simple, to provide consumers with an opportunity to rent (at a rate commensurate with the car’s performance) a well-equipped sports car for a day, a weekend or even longer.
When it came to the 2009 Corvette ZHZ Edition we have here, the car came equipped with a 436-horsepower, 6.2-liter LS3 V8 under its hood and a paddle-shift automatic gearbox, a special paint scheme and unique wheels specific to its limited production of only 375 2009 Hertz ZHZ Corvette Convertibles.

Hertz recognized the special attraction many automotive enthusiasts had to the Chevy Corvette, and so they partnered with General Motors to introduce 500 of the ZHZ Corvettes to their fleet. These cars were distributed among 24 major metropolitan cities across 14 states and Washington D.C.
