Rent an ST when in Holland

Sorry if this has been posted before.
This is rather old news but just thought I would throw it out there for anyone traveling to Holland and would like to drive the ST in Euroland.
I believe the daily rate starts at Euro 90.00


ST-H , from Hertz

Thats awesome, though I don't quite understand the rear stripe cut-outs? Seems like maybe the stripes were an afterthought.

Are they trying to rent these to teenage boys?
Clearly it would be much better without the obnoxious stripes and it's expensive on top of that.

No thanks.

It's not like this is a new idea

The Hertz Mustangs were more expensive as well, and yes, they were usually rented by teens and taken to tracks back in the day.
The later models were all rented by the the same old guys who rented them as youths because obviously, between 2006-2008, nobody under the age of 40 had any money to rent a Shelby Mustang.

It's great to see Hertz stepping up again with these ST rentals. Too bad the US hasn't caught on yet.

Went to Utah for the ST Octane Academy and rented an ST to drive around to the reception and to the track. Booked a Mustang GT, but they wouldn't have one until after 4 pm local time which would be too late, plus I wanted an ST anyway. Someone crashed one of the manual Mustangs or so I was told. I'm happy. It's stock with under 6000 miles on the clock. It's almost like I didn't leave my car at home minus the mods and the trim level.

ST1 from Budget rental car in Salt Lake City, Utah.
