Kevin Hart Pays $825K for Classic Corvette at Auction

Funnyman Kevin Hart is entering spring a little ahead of the common bear courtesy of Barrett-Jackson’s recent auto auction in Scottsdale.

The actor wound up as high bidder on a classic: a pre-Stingray corvette. In order to drive away in the C1—or have it transported, carefully, to the collectable car storage facility of his choice—Hart had to hand out hard cash or its equivalent in the amount of $825K.

The two-toned beauty hails from the halcyon rock-and-roll days of 1959. A restomod example, it is loaded with a V8 that displaces 6.2 liters and delivers up to 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. Brakes, suspension and steering have all been altered to suit the more powerful engine.

The car’s finish is Franny Green, a metallic moss color that sets off the white and chrome accents and white-wall tires very well, not to mention the brown ragtop. The interiors also boast contemporary updates, right down to LED lighting and Bluetooth.

Hart’s upcoming projects include The Man From Toronto, with Woody Harrelson and Kaley Cuoco, and Borderlands, with Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Jack Black. He also stars in soon-to-be-released Netflix drama Fatherhood.
