Kevin Hart is about to put his love of automotive culture on full display. He and his comedy crew, The Plastic Cup Boyz, are partnering with MotorTrend for a new series on the company's streaming service. Kevin Hart's Muscle Car Crew will examine the world of car clubs through the eyes of comedians.
According to a press release, the show will "take a lighthearted, hilarious look at the world of car collecting and what it means to be a muscle car devotee as they attempt to successfully launch their own automotive club." The group of comedians includes John Clausell, Ron Everline, Spank Horton, Harry Ratchford, and Joey Wells. Lucky Costa of MotorTrend's HOT ROD Garage will join the group and serve as the house mechanic for the eight-episode series.

"We are very excited about the opportunity for HartBeat and The Plastic Cup Boyz to bring a one-of-kind car show to MotorTrend," Ratchford said in a press release. "Car collecting and car club is something we enjoy while on the road touring and we think the audience will enjoy learning and laughing alongside us… So buckle up for a journey into classic car culture."
Hart is known for his love of cars. Back in 2018, Hot Cars profiled some of the vehicles in his garage. The list included a classic Pontiac GTO, a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Edition, the limited-edition Mustang GT500E Super Snake, and a Ferrari 488 GTB Spider among others. Now he will show off his love of vehicles in a different way while partnering with the Plastic Cup Boyz.
"THIS IS NOT YOUR GRANDFATHER'S CAR SHOW!" Wells added. "This is high powered, supercharged, excitement. Claim your seat and hold on tight as we explore this world of high-octane power from the lens of collectors and comedians."
