Palace Avenue and the surrounding roads were sealed off by police and medics attended the scene.
A spokesman confirmed the man died after he was struck by a silver Mercedes CLS and they are now appealing for information from the public.
A passer-by, who did not want to be named, said they noticed a huge amount of emergency service vehicles in the town centre in the moments after the accident.
He said: "I noticed that there was a person laying in the road just before the bike shop with a blanket over them- they weren't moving.
"It was quite shocking to see and looked like something really serious."
A spokesman for Kent Police added: "The force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit are investigating the circumstances and would like to hear from anyone who has information.
"They would also like to obtain dash cam footage from anyone travelling in the Palace Avenue and Lower Stone Street areas shortly before the time of the collision."
A police cordon was set up along Palace Avenue and Lower Stone Street.
Medics and multiple emergency service vehicles were also spotted close to the bingo hall at the foot of Gabriels Hill.
