Launching at Frankfurt Airport, the new "Kollektion 7 – Made in Germany" includes prestige vehicles from top German brands BMW, Mercedes Benz and Porsche.

Hertz Europe has unveiled "Kollektion 7 – Made in Germany," a new collection of seven prestige vehicles celebrating luxury German marques in the birthplace of the car.

Launching at Frankfurt Airport, the new "Kollektion 7 – Made in Germany" includes prestige vehicles from top German brands BMW, Mercedes Benz and Porsche.  

The new country collection offer incorporates Kollektion 7-branded lounges and is rolling out to six further locations across Germany, with Düsseldorf and Munich launching later in 2019.

"With the launch of our Kollektion 7 prestige offer we are meeting customer demand for an exceptional driving experience and exclusive service, combined in a stylish leisure offering," said Alida Scholtz, managing director of Hertz Germany.

"Around the world, the 'Made in Germany' moniker is a hallmark of quality and engineering excellence. This new collection brings those values to life – allowing Hertz customers to experience premium automotive and high-end German brands,” Scholtz added.

Kollektion 7 includes a choice of iconic German models: the luxury BMW M850i Cabriolet, BMW Z4, Mercedes-AMG GT and Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-door coupe, Porsche 718 Boxster, Porsche Macan S, and Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid.

All models will be available in the colours of the German flag: black, red and yellow.

Each of the seven locations will offer customers a unique, city-specific driving experience, giving visitors the opportunity to get to know the characteristics of different regions.

Guests can also start sampling the local gastronomic treats as soon as they enter their chosen vehicle, thanks to a gift basket which provides a sample of local fare.

Currently available exclusively from Hertz, the Mercedes-AMG GT has been used as a safety car in Formula 1 since 2015. With a top speed of 304 km / h, the Mercedes-AMG GT combines sports car heritage with practicality.

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-door coupé is a top-of-the-range four-door model, and accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.4 seconds.

There are three models from Porsche in the Kollektion 7, including the Porsche 718 Boxster.

Earlier this year Hertz launched its British Collection in the UK – a premium customer service rental offer, featuring a suite of Best-of-British services and products, with models including the Land Rover Discovery Sport and the Jaguar F Pace, E Pace, XE and XF.

More recently, Hertz expanded its Selezione Italia offer to include the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, the most powerful production Alfa ever built.
