We all know Jerry Seinfeld is one of the world’s funniest comedians, but he also is a very passionate car collector. So much so, he even has a web series that shows off some of his favorite cars. While he doesn’t own all these cars, he shows off some of his favorite of all time. Take a look at a few of our favorite cars from his show “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.”
1958 Cadillac Eldorado Seville
If you owned an Eldorado Seville in the 50s, you were the envy of everyone on your block. Jerry was for sure the envy of many people when Don Rickles joined him for a ride. This car embodied everything about high class living, and usually the owner did too. The 335hp V8 engine could shoot from zero to 60 in 10 seconds — but you didn't care about speed, you just wanted to be seen in this baby.
1949 Porsche 356/2
This car might not look like much at first, but it's a beautiful piece of history — just like his guest, Jay Leno. This 356/2 is one of the first production cars designed by Porsche. This particular model happens to be numbered 40th out of only 52 built. These cars were built completely by hand in a sawmill in Gmund, Austria, hence why they are also called "Gmunds."
1964 Morgan Plus Four
Morgans are the definition of cool, so it's no wonder that Stephen Colbert was picked for this ride. These British classics aren't found in the US that often, so it's always a treat to get a glimpse when you can. This baby blue Plus Four is a four-speed manual with a 105 horsepower engine. Believe it or not, the frame is actually made of ash wood. How crazy is that?
1969 Lamborghini P400s Miura
There's no surprise that Jerry calls this "the most beautiful car I've ever seen." His guest Chris Rock on the other hand, might not be the most beautiful man he's ever seen. The way that Lamborghini was able to make this car appeal to both male and female drivers is incredible. Don't let a few of the feminine accents fool you, the 360hp V12 engine will compete with any sports car that comes by.
1965 Buick Riviera
Is there another Buick that's more beautiful than this? We don't think so, and neither does guest George Wallace. This burgundy two-door hardtop features a Wildcat 445 V8 Nailhead thats pushes out 325 horsepower. This model is also the only one to feature the clamshell headlights, which add a nice touch to this work of art.
1967 Austin Healey 3000
The Austin Healey 3000 is the sports car for the person that wants a British sports car, but doesn't want to fork out Jaguar money. Although, Jerry and guest Ricky Gervais both could easily afford to shell out some cash. The 3000 sports a straight-six 150hp engine that gets you from place to place with ease. Just don't drive too fast — safety wasn't a huge concern in the 60s!
1957 Chevy Bel-Air Convertible
Jerry picks up Steve Harvey in this stunning black Bel-Air. This model is the V8 edition, which features gold accents throughout the design. One of the coolest features might be the how you fill it up. The gas cap is actually hidden within the rear wing!
1952 Volkswagen Beetle
The Volkswagen Bug is one of the most recognizable cars on the planet. You aren't driving this car for the power though, seeing as it only has a 4-cylinder, 25hp engine. This car is for looks and looks only. If you want to be immediately propelled back in time, get behind the wheel of a Bug. We know guest Larry David thoroughly enjoyed this car.
1959 Porsche RSK Spyder
This slick Porsche is a mid-engine design with a full aluminum body . This particular RSK Spyder is stamped as the 19th one ever built. The 4-cylinder 1.6 liter flat-four-engine was made strictly for racing. This model was produced by Porsche to prove that a small car with a small engine could be faster than a larger car with a larger engine. Small can be better, just ask guest star Kevin Hart!
1964 Aston Martin DB5
This Aston Martin is exactly what James Bond would be cruising around town in. Mr. Bond wasn't available, so Jerry cruised around with former co-star Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The 280hp straight-six engine is more than enough to elude all of your enemies. The aluminum body is so sleek, you just want to stare at it all day.
1965 Saab 95 Monte Carlo 850
Featuring a two-stroke 850cc engine, the Monte Carlo 850 won't be winning a drag race anytime soon. The cool thing about a two-stroke is you don't have any valves, and you have to actually mix the gas with the oil. If you are looking for a car that is quiet and runs perfectly, this Saab is not for you. This weird car deserves an equally weird guest — that's where Fred Armisen comes in.
1970 Mercedes Benz 280 SL
All Mercedes are sexy, that's just common knowledge. But this particular red 280 SL is worth drooling over. It features a 170hp straight-six engine, but that's the last thing on your mind when driving. This 280 SL wins on looks alone. Plus, guest star Alec Baldwin isn't hard to look at either.
1971 Ferrari Daytona GTB/4
What pops out the most about the Ferrari is the "Fly Yellow" paint job — yes, that is the real name of the color. This Daytona GTB/4 comes equipped with a V12 352hp engine that will blow your socks off. Even guest Amy Schumer couldn't handle her excitement —or fear — of riding in this Ferrari.
1959 Fiat Jolly
This Fiat looks like something one of the Shriners should be popping up on two wheels at a parade. You definitely wouldn't expect to see Jerry and Louis C.K. inside this little thing. The Jolly comes equipped with a massive 22 horsepower engine, capable of reaching a max speed of 65 miles per hour. You also may have noticed one small thing — there are no doors!
