Kevin Hart’s 1969 Road Runner Is a 940 HP HEMI Killer Named Michael Myers

I’m more of a Mike Myers fan myself, but I do respect Michael Myers especially if the slasher movie star comes back in the form of a muscle car. I’m talking about a fully custom HEMI Road Runner built for the richest comedian in the world, none other than Kevin Hart.

It’s no secret that Kevin has excellent taste in cars and is rich enough to finance some of the best builds in America. He owns one of those full-carbon 1970 Chargers that make 1000 horsepower, a Mustang GT500E Super Snake, and a Pontiac GTO. But the passion also cost him dearly, as in September 2019, his spine was broken in three places during a crash (it was a SpeekKore Cuda).

With this latest restomod build, a 1969 Road Runner, Kevin wanted to pay tribute to the 1960s era of Mopar and commissioned Salvaggio Design to make this sinister machine.

A HEMI-powered 1969 Road Runner is already Mopar royalty, but Kevin chose to upgrade in a major way. His 7-liter V8 is fitted with a massive 3.8-liter supercharger, brightly colored and quite vocal. The engine is also equipped with CP pistons, Winberg crank and ported Dodge Demon heads.

A street-able Demon

Since this produces 940 horsepower on 91-octane gas, a Tremec 6060 six-speed has been tasked with handling the load. You have to respect Kevin for having a manual muscle car with hypercar power.

The bodywork looks minimalist and industrial. Deep black paint has been paired with a multitude of Billet automotive parts. We’ll start with the grille, which resembles a more perfect version of the original 1969 design. The door handles and taillights are immediately obvious as custom parts.

Besides the carbon fiber hood, the most obvious restomod upgrade of the exterior are the wheels. These are custom-made by HRE, 18s at the front and 20s at the rear. and they’ve been paired with special hub caps. Unfortunately, you can’t really see the brakes, but they are 14-inch rotors with six-piston calipers at the front.

This is probably a $500,000 car, but you could have a little piece of it yourself. Salvaggio Design created a 3D scan of the donor car and then fabricated a special frame that fits all Mopar B platform cars and will be for sale.

The interior is just as sinister as that BASF black paint. It’s done in black Italian leather with orange stitching and has numerous Michael Mayers elements. There’s the obvious logo on the door sills, but also a little Myers face in the rpm gauge and a knife handle for the pistol grip shifter. Check out AutotopiaLA’s latest highlght video below.
