Despite having $500,000 worth of clothing, jewelry, and other items stolen from his Los Angeles home last month, comedian Kevin Hart is keeping a positive attitude and even picked up a new Mercedes-AMG G65.

Hart formerly owned a Mercedes-AMG G63, but it looks he’s making some major upgrades to his car collection as he also recently picked up a Ferrari 488 GTB. In addition, Hart commissioned Stealth Motorworks, which is an automotive customizing and repair shop, to perform modifications on his new Mercedes G-Class SUV that included new tinted windows and Forgiato rims.

The comedian’s new Mercedes-AMG G65 comes equipped with a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine that pumps out 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. With this powerful engine, Hart’s new G-Wagen can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 5.2 seconds, while also being able to tow up to 7,000 pounds. In contrast, Hart’s old G63 SUV only came with a 536-horsepower V8 engine.

However, Hart is far from the only celebrity in Hollywood who owns a Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV. Popular rap artist and movie star Clifford “T.I.” Harris also took to Instagram recently to show off his own green G-Wagen, as well as a new GMC Yukon Denali. Other celebrities who are known to keep G-Wagens in their driveways include professional baseball player Matt Kemp, reality television star Kyle Jenner, and YouTube personality Trisha Paytas, just to name a few.

The starting MSRP of a new Mercedes-AMG G65 SUV is roughly $217,000, but that shouldn’t have been any problem for Hart considering the fact that his new film Central Intelligence, which co-stars Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson, is the highest grossing live-action film released in 2016.

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.
