This may very well be one of the most legendary car builds of all time. That's a big claim but backing it up is 2000 horsepower, a base Veyron-crushing

The car’s owner, RJ Gottlieb, explains in the Hoonigan Build Biology video that the fastest Big Red has ever reached has been a blistering 266 mph. The ProCharger supercharged 598ci high-compression engine puts out 2000-horsepower, runs on methanol, and has no electronic engine management software whatsoever.

In addition to the insane power output, and impressive track record, the Big Red Camaro is somewhat of a Phoenix that rose from the ashes when it became engulfed in flames in 2016, which was a result of a loose fitting during a shakedown run at Buttonwillow Raceway in preparation for Pikes Peak. A year later, the iconic Camaro was back and better than ever. It would find its redemption when it would go on to complete the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

Kevin Hart Drives A First Gen Camaro.
But that’s not all the classic muscle the funny man owns. When you’re a comedian who can literally sell out stadiums, having an awesome car collection just comes with the territory. As you might expect, Kevin Hart does own some flashy, exotic, and modern rides like a Ferrari 488 GTB and a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. But the man also has a taste for vintage American muscle, including a very nice first generation Chevy Camaro. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.
