5 Coolest Cars from Kevin Hart’s Instagram
Comedian Kevin Hart has starred in a number of successful movies in the past few years and his bank account has grown considerably as a result. In 2015, Forbes estimated that the 5-foot 4-inch actor pulled in $28.5 million, which was largely due to high-grossing films like The Wedding Ringer and Get Hard. So what’s a guy to do with all that cash? For Hart, the answer was to invest some of that money into a premium car collection, which his fans can view regularly through the actor’s social media accounts. Below are five of the coolest cars that can be seen on Hart’s official Instagram page…

Ferrari 488 GTB
It’s a good thing that Hart has released so many successful movies lately because with an MSRP of nearly a quarter-million dollars, the Ferrari 488 GTB certainly doesn’t come cheap. Powering the 488 GTB is a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that pumps out 661 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque. That engine is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. In addition, with this powertrain, the 488 GTB can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 3.0 seconds and can hit 100 mph on the speedometer in less than six seconds. Combine that powerful acceleration with this Ferrari’s revised adaptive suspension and you have one seriously desirable supercar.
1966 Pontiac GTO
Every celebrity has unique tastes when it comes to their car collections. While hip-hop icon Dr. Dre has a thing for ’64 Impalas and basketball player Stephen Curry is partial to Porsches, funny man Kevin Hart’s go-to-ride is his 1966 Pontiac GTO. If you take a minute to look over the pictures on his Instagram account, you’ll notice there are more photos of his old-school Pontiac than any other vehicle. The GTO was one of the premier vehicles of the muscle car era and Hart even took the additional step of adding Forgiato wheels to his classic convertible. The GTO may not be as fast as his Ferrari 458, but it’s definitely one of the more personalized cars in his collection.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
Before the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S, there was the SLS-AMG and its eye-catching gull-wing doors. This model was built by the Mercedes’ AMG performance division and features an all-aluminum body and frame in order to reduce the weight of the vehicle. Underneath its hood lies a 6.2-liter V8 engine rated at 563 and 479 lb-ft of torque. That powerful motor allows this RWD Mercedes to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in approximately 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 197 mph. However, that performance didn’t come cheap, as the 2012 model carried a starting MSRP of more than $180,000.
It seems like everybody in Hollywood owns a Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV. Originally designed as a military vehicle, variations of the G-Class have been used by the governments of more than 40 countries. However, for civilians the 4X4 G-Class is more of status symbol than anything else and with a rumored net worth of more than $50 million; Hart has an image to uphold, so he probably won’t be seen driving around in a Toyota Camry anytime soon. In addition, Hart’s choice to go with the biturbo V8 motor–rather than the V12 engine–could be taken as sign that he’s trying to help the environment.
Ferrari 458 Spider
Not too many cars can match the speed that’s found in the Ferrari 458 Spider. Motivated by a 562-horsepower V8 engine, the 458 Spider only needs 2.9 seconds to reach 60 mph and can hit a top speed of 202 mph. In addition, the aluminum roof can be lowered in a mere 14 seconds, so its driver can enjoy the weather while cruising around in the quarter-million dollar sports car. Other celebrities who have been seen driving the Ferrari 458 include Justin Bieber, Kylie Jenner, and rap artist The Game.

Samuel Huist is easily the tallest member (6-feet 5-inches) of the The News Wheel team. He enjoys listening to hip-hop music and loves watching NBA basketball. Sam is also a Dayton, Ohio native and doesn’t seem to mind that distinction as much anymore. His first car was a 1996 Ford Taurus he could barely fit in. Like many young folks, he seemed more concerned about the radio in his first car than actually doing the work to maintain an automobile, so sadly it’s no longer with us. See more articles by Samuel.
