Last month we told you about Hertz celebrating their 100th birthday by adding a special 100th Anniversary Corvette Z06 to their rental fleet with availability in select markets. Today, Hertz displayed one of the distinct yellow and black Corvettes on Wall Street outside the New York Stock Exchange.
Hertz was on Wall Street today to celebrate its 100th birthday by ringing the closing bell at the NYSE. A photo showing the Corvette and several other new luxury car rentals was tweeted out by the company this afternoon:

A total of 100 of these specially outfitted 650-hp Corvette Z06s were built for the rental company. All Corvette Z06s will come in Corvette Yellow with black racing stripes that run over the car from front to back.
The Hertz 100th Anniversary Edition Corvette Z06 features an eight-speed automatic transmission, black aluminum wheels, yellow brake calipers, Competition Sport seats along with custom Hertz badging inside and a Hertz Centennial Anniversary Plaque displaying the build sequence of the car.
The special Z06s will be offered for rent at several airport locations across the United States, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orlando, San Diego, San Francisco, and Tampa.
During 2008 and 2009, Hertz added 850 Corvettes to their rental fleet’s Prestige Collection consisting of 500 Coupes and 350 Convertibles. Following their rental cycle, the Corvettes were sold through Manheim’s dealer-only auctions in Orlando, Florida.
Who knows, maybe we’ll see a new wave of previous rental Corvette Z06s offered for sale at hertzcarsales.com in a year or two.
