Kevin Hart clearly wants his daughter to share his passion for cars.
While young gearheads continuously dream of owning their favorite car, the reality is that most of us start our driving lives buying a cheap used car with a high mileage on a modest budget - unless your parents happen to be famous Hollywood stars, that is.
It's not uncommon for rich celebrities to buy exotic cars for their children. Kevin Hart's daughter, Heaven, recently turned 16, so to celebrate he surprised her during a party at the family home with a lavish gift: a brand-new Mercedes-Benz luxury SUV.
A video recorded by bDASHd Event Planning and Bakery, which organized the elaborate birthday party, shared by Hiphop Crown Nation show the comedian's daughter being escorted outside by her mom, Kevin Hart's ex-wife, Torrei, to the driveway, where she finds a brand-new Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV finished in black and wrapped in two large red bows. Heaven is stunned by the grand gesture and wastes no time checking out the SUV's opulent interior and stereo system.
It's unknown how much Kevin Hart splashed out on the luxury SUV, but the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 starts at $34,250 in front-wheel drive guise and $38,230 with AWD. With all the options ticked, a fully loaded example will set you back around $50,000, which isn't much for the actor said to be worth around $200 million. It could have been a Maybach.
In the car world, Kevin Hart is known for his love of muscle cars. He previously owned a customized 1972 Plymouth Barracuda, which was destroyed in 2019 after it rolled down an embankment with someone else behind the wheel. Hart suffered serious back injuries in the crash but has made a miraculous recovery.
Since then, he wasted no time enlisting Speedkore to build him a custom 1970 Dodge Charger with an exposed carbon body and a 1,000 horsepower V8 Dodge crate engine to replace it. Clearly, Hart is hoping his daughter will share his love for cars once she gets behind the wheel of her new luxury SUV for the first time.
