Kevin Hart just dropped $825,000 on a “new” 1959 Chevrolet Corvette.
Hart, 41, just bought himself an early Christmas present. According to Yahoo! News, Hart went to a Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction where he walked away with a unique find: a 1959 Chevy Corvette.
The two-toned vehicle is powered by 460 hp 6.2-liter V8 from the seventh-generation Corvette, Yahoo! News reports. That is the last front-engine model before the mid-engine C8 came out last year. On top of that, the car is decked out with a custom “Art Morrison high-performance front suspension designed for the C7, Wilwood brakes, a powder-coated frame, retro EVOD wheels, and Dakota Digital gauges,” the outlet reports. The car also has a modern Wonder Bar radio head unit.
Hart attended the auction with his comedy group Plastic Cup Boyz. At the time, the entourage was working on a new show called “Muscle Car Crew” for the MotorTrend app.
Yahoo! News reports that Hart has for some time been a collector of vintage and newly restored cars. He recently had a 1970 Dodge Charger delivered to him back in February. He also purchased a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda.
