Though undeniably best-known for his standup comedy and acting, Kevin Hart has increasingly developed a reputation as a true gearhead, using his approximately $200M net worth to build out an ever-growing collection of world-class customs, muscle cars, and modern supercars. And while his roughly 20-car stable already features several Ferraris, numerous Speedkore builds, a Mercedes-Benz AMG SLS Black Edition, a 1966 Pontiac GTO, and an Eleanor-spec 1967 Mustang, the Philadelphia-born funnyman has just taken ownership of his latest one-off ride, a 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner from Salvaggio Design that’s been christened “Michael Myers.”
Aiming to pay homage to Mopar muscle cars of the late 1960s, the 1969 Plymouth has received new bodywork with a carbon fiber hood and flush-fitting carbon fiber bumpers courtesy of Brothers Composites. Powering the custom is a 940-hp 7.0L HEMI V8 built by Gearhead Fabrication that’s received a slew of upgraded internals and components, including a Magnaflow exhaust, a Dominator EFI, and a custom 3.8L Whipple supercharger set in a bespoke billet housing. The HEMI engine is also mated to a reinforced Tremec 6060 six-speed manual transmission that’s operated via a custom billet stickshift inspired by the kitchen knife of the build’s slasher namesake.
Michael Myers’ running gear is all top-of-the-line equipment, with a DSE Gen-X 595 front suspension setup and Brembo six-pot calipers chomping down on 14” rotors. The build also rolls along on a blacked-out set of lightweight aluminum HRE wheels with three-piece billet hub caps — a nod to the “dog dish” caps found on the 1969 Roadrunner. The car has also been bestowed with a myriad of one-off billet items, as well as a slew of custom carbon fiber elements. Alongside receiving a custom full roll-cage, the fully-bespoke interior of the build also features custom RECARO seats upholstered in Italian leather, original airbrushed Dakota instrumentation, and a unique billet steering wheel.
Based on his already elite — and incredibly diverse — collection of cars, we’re genuinely curious to see what rides Hart adds to his garage next, as thus far the comedian has exhibited some pretty spectacular automotive taste.
