Seinfeld obviously has many different variations of this car, but the base 911 is one of his favorites. Like Leno, he enjoys actually driving his cars, and the 1964 Porsche 911 is considered by many to be the pinnacle of driving. The car just screams for you to get behind the wheel, and this is true in many aspects. The straightforward design of the car is comfortable and you can expect to smell vinyl.
The 1964 Porsche 911 had a lot of advantages over other sports cars at the time. With the swooping lines and the easy-to-work-on motor, this was the true car for enthusiasts who wanted to own one.
Seinfeld doesn’t own a lot of Lamborghini models, but the Miura does stand out from the crowd. The car was designed to be a Lambo track car and it did great in every aspect. The design of the car looks absolutely beautiful to this day, and its performance is still satisfactory. There were a few issues with these when they first hit the market, but those have since been ironed out. The Miura is a stellar exotic car that offers a great deal of quality.
The Lamborghini quality can be seen in every aspect of this car, and that’s a good thing because you don’t see it very often anymore. The valuation of these cars has gone through the roof and Seinfeld has one of the most original models you’ll see.
Yet another car that Seinfeld shares with Jay Leno, the Countach has a unique look to it. So much so that the car still stands out in a crowd to this day. With the powerful V12 engine at its disposal, the Countach is lean and mean, lending to a fun driving experience. The car also does a great job of offering a comfortable experience, something that Lamborgini isn’t known for doing.
The comfort of the Countach was never the main selling feature of the car, it was the sheer speed that you can achieve. Seinfeld has managed to keep his Countach in clean and presentable condition and the current value of these cars is unbelievable.
This is an exotic car that managed to keep that same iconic styling of the 911 well into a new generation. The car was designed for speed, and you can tell that every aspect of the 1997 Porsche 993 Cup 3.8 RSR is dressed to impress. Many car fans call this the millionaire’s hot wheel because it looks like a toy car. But don’t let the looks fool you, because this is one of the most focused Porsche models to hit the road in recent years.
The look and feel of the car stand out from the crowd in a lot of aspects. The stitching, along with the wheels and fenders, makes the car amazingly fun to drive sports car. With the high price tag, this is a bundle of fun and a bucket list car that shouldn’t be ignored.
Seinfeld has begun to collect modern Porsche models as we can see by this entry. The 2011 Porsche 997 Speedster was a limited-production car that was meant to reinvigorate the brand. When Porsche creates a new car, they generally keep the production numbers low, thus creating a rarity with every model. Performance-wise the 2011 Porsche 997 Speedster is about as fast as you can get for this kind of sports car.
The beauty of the exterior is only mirrored by a functional interior, with plenty of trunk space and all the usual Porsche fair. Don’t let yourself be fooled, though, this is a serious performance car that can burn some serious rubber on the track.
Seinfeld doesn’t drive as much as he collects, which could explain how the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 Coupe got into the mix. The car is known affectionately as the James Bond mobile, making it a unique offering. The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 Coupe is much faster than you’d expect, and the exterior styling closely resembles an early Ford Thunderbird model. Some various upgrades and refreshes were done to the DB5.
Finding an original model isn’t easy, and trying to save money on it is going to be even more difficult. These early model Aston Martins are known to hold their values, so it makes sense that this one would cost so much.
This was the car to have if you wanted a Porsche that no one could touch during the ’90s. Everything about this car screams successful broker on Wall Street, but that’s not even what the 959 was designed for. This car was designed to be the quintessential Porsche that would change the way that people looked at the brand. The 959 was elegant and elongated, the car looked a lot different than what Porsche was selling at the time.
The unique look of the car made it a lot different than the standard fare, and that was fine. The rarity of the car has increased what the value is for it, and you can expect to pay a lot more than you would for the average run-of-the-mill 911.
2: 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing – $4.62 million
Here’s one of the most expensive prizes in the Seinfeld collection, the 300SL Gullwing. These cars are valuable and very few collectors in the country have one because the car is expensive. The design is quintessential Mercedes for this time period, and performance is above average. You can expect to drive like never before in one of these as it grips the road with authority.
Off the line, speed wasn’t what the car was about, and authentic collectors knew this. The 300SL Gullwing is about as unique and original as you can get. There are a lot of aspects that make the 300SL Gullwing an instrumental piece of Mercedes heritage.
Another expensive offering in Seinfeld’s collection is not a Porsche either, but a BMW. Oh the travesty, but you’d be wrong to think that because the 1957 BMW 507 Series II is a serious performance car. Take one look at the sleek lines and elegant exterior and you’ll see a sports car that was way ahead of its time. BMW went to great lengths to make sure that the car was unique in every aspect, from the head-turning styling to the interior which was a lot better than you’d expect a car in this price range to be.
With the pricing of classic cars continuing to skyrocket, the 1957 BMW 507 Series II will forever be etched in history for its unique design. Head-turning performance makes the 1957 BMW 507 Series II a worthwhile addition to any collector’s fleet.
