Standing up as one of the top 10 comedians in the world, Kevin Hart is a person loved for his charming and humble personality. From the wittiest jokes to flawless acting skills, Hart is no stranger to Hollywood. In fact, the Philadelphia-based comedian enjoys a sophisticated social image and has a net worth of a shocking $450 million, slotting just below Adam Sandler.
Kevin, though he’s a comedian and, oh, also an actor, reserves a special place for cars. And what does he do aside from act and telling crazy jokes? He thinks and dreams about cars. And this is truer when you take a peek at what he has hidden in his garage. Some of the hottest and most distinct classic cars and resto-mod American muscle cars. Here we take a peek at the custom-made classic cars (including some iconic muscles) the talented comedian treasures in his garage.
1958 Chevrolet Corvette Mint Condition
Kevin bought this $825,000 beauty from Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction last year, and unlike his other custom muscle cars, the Mint Condition is all about elegance. This beauty has a 6.2-liter V8 engine and a 4-speed automatic gearbox, putting out 460 horses and 465 lb-ft of torque.
The chassis is fitted with Art Morrison C7 front suspensions with fully adjustable Strange coilovers and a set of 14-inch ventilated discs coupled to 6-piston front calipers and Wilwood brakes.
Kevin’s Corvette is painted PPG Franny Green with power-coated Cadillac Gray fenders. The exterior also adds a chrome-accented grille, chrome front and rear bumpers, and a set of EVOD one-off wheels with Nitto tires.
The interior is equally gorgeous, featuring cream artificial leather combined with a timeless design. The three-spoke custom steering wheel, Dakota digital gauges, bespoke infotainment system with a stereo system, Bluetooth, JL amplifier, a subwoofer, and focal speakers offer a classy experience.
1969 Chevrolet Camaro Bad News
Kevin’s 1969 Camaro restomod is insane, and what it hides inside is crazy! The 1969 Camaro Bad News was built on an Art Morrison G Max chassis and is equipped with C6 Corvette-sourced front suspensions and a couple of triangulated 9-inch four-link rear suspensions. Power is provided by a D-stroked LSX-based 380-cubic-inch 6.2-liter V8 engine mated to a Tremec 6-speed manual transmission and a pair of upgraded 68mm Turbonetics ball-bearing turbochargers, which produce an impressive 650 horses and 680 lb-ft of torque.
Kevin’s 1969 Chevy Camaro is designed with satin black paint and black-tinted glass to further match its character. The grille and headlight protectors remain stock, but they are decorated with a Bad News badge for personalization. This Camaro exhibits a meaner demeanor with an aggressive front bumper with a muscular splitter below, a pair of fog lamps, and a meaty bumper coupled with a pair of dual matte-polished exhausts. A set of custom Forgeline wheels with Kumho rubber tires acts as the car’s final seasoning.
1969 Plymouth Road Runner Michael Myers
Next on the list is a truly dynamic-looking alter ego of a 1969 Plymouth Road Runner nicknamed Michael Myers, built by Wisconsin-based Salvaggio Design. This Road Runner sits on a custom chassis and is finished in a special black color. The exterior also features a carbon fiber hood and front and rear bumpers. Below, a set of HRE Steelies, a three-piece billet hub, and orange sidewall stripes covered with Michelin Pilot Sport tires give it a striking image.
Michael Myers is powered by a 7.0-liter HEMI V8 mill with a 3.8-liter Whipple supercharger and a six-speed manual gearbox offering a stout 940 horses. Power is sourced to the rear wheels via a 9-inch Ford axle, and the wheels are equipped with Brembo six-piston high-performance brakes.
Michael Myers features an upscale interior with Recaro black perforated Italian leather seats, custom rear seats, an orange-stitched black leather-covered headliner, door panels, and other interior parts.
1970 Dodge Charger Hellraiser
The Hellraiser is the brawniest muscle car in Kevin’s garage and is constructed on a bespoke SpeedKore-designed frame further reinforced with a 14-point roll cage and multipoint harnesses. A 7.0-liter Hellephant V8 crate engine generates 1,000 horsepower and 950 pound-feet of torque. Smoke runs through specially designed MagnaFlow exhausts to create an astounding exhaust note.
The exterior of the Hellraiser is truly special, as it is meticulously built with aerospace-grade carbon fiber. The grille has been crafted from solid aluminum, and the pattern gives the Hellraiser a distinct look. Other parts like the hood, fenders, and bumpers are made of carbon fiber to make this beauty stand out.
The Hellraiser is outfitted with a pair of black Recaro Sportster GT seats with red leather inserts on the inside. Other special touches like SpeedKore-branded classic gauges, billet switches, and a modern audio system give it a contemporary touch.
1987 Buick Grand National Dark Knight
Similar to Kevin’s other cars, the Dark Knight too was built from the ground up with a custom-built chassis equipped with a Detroit Speed & Engineering X-Gen 595 front suspension package, four-link rear suspensions, a Panhard bar, and performance coilovers.
This car runs on an LF4 3.6L V6 Twin-Turbo V6 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, providing 650 hp with 103-octane fuel. Braking is handled by a set of Brembo GT six-piston calipers and ventilated disc rotors.
Salvaggio wanted to keep the exterior design original and painted it with BASF black paint. However, he wanted to make the car look chiseled. Thus, he remodeled the car in CAD and used carbon fiber in the front and rear bumpers, hood, spoiler, and door handles.
The Dark Knight features the best interior among his custom-made cars. The interior is crafted with blue and black leather and decorated with bronze stitching and pinstripes. The dashboard is made with 3D-printed parts and offers vintage AC, bronze door trims, and carbon fiber touches for a premium appeal.
