PARK RIDGE, NJ, July 26, 2011 - Hertz (NYSE: HTZ), the world's largest general use car rental brand, has introduced the Lotus Evora for exclusive hire in several European markets, following a successful launch of the coupe in Italy in 2010, and an extended partnership with Group Lotus plc, which began in 2009. The Lotus Evora is the launch car of the new Adrenaline Range in the Hertz Fun Collection of Germany, Spain and the UK, and also joins as a special car in the Fun Collection in France.
