Haters Wish They Could Own Kevin Hart’s New Mercedes-AMG G65 SUV
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.
