Red Velvet Car is the fourteenth studio album by US hard rock band Heart, released worldwide on August 31, 2010 by Legacy Recordings. It peaked at #10 on the US Billboard 200, and at #3 on the US Rock Albums chart, making it their first top 10 hit album in 20 years since 1990's Brigade. It contains the Billboard US Adult Contemporary Chart hit single "Hey You" (#26) and the Top Selling Rock Singles Chart hit "WTF" (#16).

The album was released with differing track lists according to format in different territories: the standard US CD release features 10 tracks, the European CD and US download version contain 12 tracks, whilst the Japanese CD and some exclusive download versions contain 13 tracks. Though the 13th track is "Listening" on the Japanese CD, some exclusive download versions substitute this for a live 2010 version of "Crazy on You".
