Kevin Hart 70 Barracuda Crash

Bought it in June/July and crashed it sometime last night. He's suffering some major back injuries now, but according to the article, he wasn't driving. It's a 70 Barracuda with a transplanted Hellcat engine. Hope he recovers from this, but I'm betting the power got away from whoever was behind the wheel. Happened up in the Malibu hills.

Resto modding a 70 Barracuda is sacrilege. At least a top shelf company did the build. Good to see no one was killed.

Apparently those are carbon fiber clones and not an original

Looking at the photos, it looks like a pretty straight road and the car took a left for whatever reason...

Those roads up there are really dark, at that time of night it would be easy to drive into a ditch. Add in 720hp, I could easily see how things could go wrong. Wish them all the best. That was a gorgeous car.

I've driven almost the entire length of Mulholland Highway. There is nothing straight about that road, lots of wrecks on it. There really isn't a shoulder anywhere, it's either a steep cliff face going up, or going down. They might have only gone 10 feet off the road, but it looks like it was 50+ feet down.

Hopefully everyone fully recovers. Supposedly Kevin was able to walk back to his house nearby to get help for the others trapped in the car.

Google map Mulholland Highway, then for fun, do a street view.

Low profile tires on a restomod with 700hp = "A HANDFUL"... I learned from my own experience when I drop shifted and mashed my 700hp aluminator at 70mph...didn't take but a second to determine that it was a bad choice. Luckily I was able to gather it up within the 4 empty lanes I had to work with. Big horsepower deserves respect...

Those look amazing. Of course, starting with a $400k price tag is a little out of my budget but I'd love to have one. Or several.

Probably the longest straight on the whole road is where is occurred......

Had to Google who he was, I don't get out past the garage much these days. Messing up your back can be worse than death. I hope he makes a full recovery.

Older and a little wiser I save my shenanigans for the track.

^^^^this. supercharger +auto+letting your friend drive the car+ 2 lane hill side woods lined road=nightmare. Can happen with manual too but is easier to gather up if it gets loose.
