Kevin Hart's 940-hp 1969 Plymouth Road Runner build is named 'Michael Meyers'.. -165

Comedian Kevin Hart is a big fan of modified muscle cars, commissioning several elaborate restomod builds. The latest addition to his collection is a 1969 Plymouth Road Runner with a sinister theme.

Dubbed "Michael Meyers," the Road Runner is the product of Wisconsin-based Salvaggio Design. It features a 940-hp supercharged Hemi V-8, carbon-fiber parts, and a Halloween-themed black-and-orange color scheme.

The 426-cubic-inch Hemi is a "hybrid Demon/Hellephant motor," Dave Salvaggio of Salvaggio Design said in a press release, referring to Mopar's Hellephant crate motor and the engine from the limited-edition Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

The custom Hemi is designed to run on 91-octane fuel. Hart requested a Tremec 6060 6-speed manual transmission, which sends power to a Ford 9-inch rear axle.

The powertrain is housed in a thoroughly reworked body shell and frame, altered to house a custom front suspension and a roll cage. A new firewall, wheel tubs, trunk (with integrated fuel cell) and other components were fabricated, along with a carbon fiber hood and bumpers. The doors, roof, fenders, and rear quarter panels remain stock, according to Salvaggio Design.

Salvaggio also installed Brembo brakes, including 6-piston calipers and 14-inch rotors up front, and 4-piston calipers and 13-inch rotors at the rear. HRE aluminum wheels—18-inch front and 20-inch rear—with billet hub caps were designed to look like a stock Road Runner's steel wheels.

The interior features Recaro front seats, black leather upholstery with an orange splatter pattern, a billet steering wheel and shifter, and a digital instrument cluster in its own billet housing. Salvaggio Design also commissioned Reymar Footwear to make a custom pair of Nike Air Max 90 sneakers to match the car.

"Michael Meyers" won't be the only killer Mopar muscle car in Hart's garage. He's also got a 1970 Dodge Charger with the Hellephant crate engine, boasting 1,000 hp.
