Kevin Hart’s Car Collection Is Proof He Works Hard so He Can Play Harder
Kevin Hart is one of the hardest-working celebrities in Hollywood and has lived the classic rags-to-riches tale. The comedian, who grew up on the streets of Philadelphia, began his acting career in 2001. Over the past two decades, Hart has amassed a fortune through sold-out comedy tours, an impressive résumé of film credits, and a plethora of writing and producing credits.
And what’s parked in the 42-year-old superstar’s garage is equally impressive. Hart’s extensive car collection is a tribute to his hard work and proof that dreams really do come true.
Kevin Hart: You have to work hard to succeed
Kevin Hart is arguably the hardest-working star in Hollywood. “[H]is comedy tours and films have grossed over $3.5 billion, and his social media following is over 140 million on all platforms combined,” Inc. reports.
“Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work,” the Jumanji actor said in a Golf Channel interview. “Everybody wants the reward, but nobody asks the question, what has to be done to get there?”
And in Hart’s book I Can’t Make This Up, he suggested, “I don’t think people really understand how great they can be; an individual’s biggest struggle is their own mind.”
In addition, the hard-working actor has a new talk show, Hart to Heart, now streaming on Peacock. He has also partnered with MotorTrend to produce Kevin Hart’s Muscle Car Crew Series.
And all of that hard work has afforded him an expensive hobby: collecting precious cars.
Kevin Hart has amassed an impressive car collection
The Ride Along actor’s car collection is proof he plays as hard as he works.
Among Hart’s stunning cars is a 1970 Dodge Charger Hellraiser harnessing an astounding 1,000 hp. He also owns a Mercedes-Benz AMG SLS Black Edition luxury coupe and a Mercedes-AMG G65. The accomplished comedian takes pride in his 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish and convertible Maserati Gran Turismo. He also has several Ferrari supercars, including a 458 Spider and two 488 GTB Spiders, HotCars reports.
In addition to his luxury vehicle collection, Hart owns several other cars. A Pontiac GTO, vintage Ford Bronco, and GMC Yukon Denali satisfy the comedian’s eclectic taste.
A new addition to his vast assortment of vehicles is a factory-ordered Ferrari 488 Pista. “Its turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 engine pumps out an extraordinary 711 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque,” the duPont Registry reports. “That’s enough power for this prancing pony to run from 0 to 62 mph in 2.85 seconds and hit a top speed of 211 mph.”
The near-fatal car crash that broke his back
In 2019, the father of four was involved in a near-fatal car crash while a passenger in his modified 1970 Plymouth Barracuda.
“The crash left the actor with three spine fractures, which would have left him paralyzed if they had been a quarter of a centimeter in one direction,” ET Online reported. After months of recovery, Hart says he is now “65 to 75% back to my physical self.”
This past April 1, Motorious published a dubious article claiming Hart “crashed every single car in his vast collection last night in a shocking protest of materialism in our modern society.” Intended as an April Fool’s Joke, the article continued, “As you might already know, Hart is an avid car collector with a wide array of expensive vehicles, all of which were insured, so there will be absolutely nothing lost.”
This attempt at humor was in poor taste considering the accomplished actor almost lost his life in the 2019 crash.
