LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Los Angeles Auto Show® will host the first public appearance of the Kevin Hart Kollection.

LA Auto Show to host Kevin Hart Kollection


An entire showcase hall at the Los Angeles Convention Center will be devoted to the Kollection, allowing attendees to be immersed in Kevin Hart’s world. This will be the first time the comedian, actor and entrepreneur has invited the public to see his private ensemble of cars, which he has been building for more than a decade.

As a hardcore car enthusiast and huge fan of American muscle cars, the Kevin Hart Kollection will allow fans to see a number of cars Kevin is revealing in public for the first time. Among them will be the 1970 Dodge Challenger Bane, which will come to Los Angeles for its public reveal after being shown at the 2023 SEMA automotive industry trade show. It will be the latest addition to Kevin’s growing collection of vehicles, many of which he themes to create unique personalities.

“I’m pumped for people to see my cars in person,” Kevin Hart said. “Some have been at the big hot rod shows, but this is the first time they’ll all be together. And to do it at a major international event like the LA Auto Show was the ideal place to make it happen. I can’t wait for fans to see them and find out which one is their favorite.”

Cars on display will include:

  • 1959 Chevrolet Corvette (Mint Condition)
  • 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle (Darkness)
  • 1969 Chevrolet Camaro (Bad News)
  • 1969 Pontiac GTO (Chocolate Droppa)
  • 1966 Pontiac GTO Convertible
  • 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner (Michael Myers)
  • 1970 Dodge Challenger (Bane)
  • 1970 Dodge Charger (Hellraiser)
  • 1987 Buick Grand National (Dark Knight)
  • 2022 Ferrari SF90 Spyder
  • 2023 Ferrari 812 Competizione

The majority of cars in the Kevin Hart Kollection have horror movie themes – Kevin’s favorite genre. Each has been created by North America’s top muscle car designers and builders. The 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner Michael Myers, for example, was designed by Sean Smith and built by Salvaggio Design. It features a 940hp supercharged Hemi V8 and six-speed manual transmission. Painted sinister black, a Halloween orange theme appears on the hub cap-style wheels, custom tires, billet door mirrors, Whipple supercharger and accents throughout the custom interior. The latter features special leather imported from Italy with orange “blood splatter” effect. There’s also a knife handle for the gear shift, and a masked Road Runner emblem adds a cartoon element. To give a sense of its stature, the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association declared Kevin’s Plymouth its 2022 Muscle Machine of the Year.

Kevin’s passion doesn’t stop at American muscle. The Kevin Hart Kollection will also feature two of the star’s coveted Ferraris. These include a 2022 Ferrari SF90 Spyder and 2023 Ferrari 812 Competizione. Both of these supercars were specified by Kevin and include custom touches such as silver racing stripes over the black paintwork as well as carbon fiber wheels on the 812. Both cars add an exciting addition to the 2023 LA Auto Show and fans of the Prancing Horse emblem.

Additional Kevin Hart announcements are planned leading up to the LA Auto Show on November 17-26, as well as more entertainment and cultural exhibits and activations taking place across the show’s one million square-feet of automotive experiences. The intersection of lifestyle and the latest offerings from top manufacturers will create a diverse, festival-like environment where enthusiasts, families, car shoppers and the entire LA community come together to celebrate the city’s world-famous car culture.
