The 1986 Porsche 959 can ride to 211 mph despite the fact that it’s top speed is listed as 197mph. Of course, Seinfeld got his hands on one of the 337 models that were built.
At the time of its production, it was considered to be the fastest street vehicle that was legal. The designers made this possible by using aluminum and other lightweight materials to keep the car light and fast.
1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing
None other than "SNL's" creator and producer, Lorne Michaels, scored a ride in one of Jerry’s most valuable cars. The 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing is valued at $1.6 million. Seinfeld said that the Gullwing is about as perfect as it comes when it comes to classic cars. The comedian joked during an interview; the car could bestow upon you “the meaning of life.”

1957 BMW 507 Series II
Jerry took the BMW 507 series II for a spin when he picked up actor Christoph Waltz for a ride. The vehicle is an impressive one, though it had meager production numbers.
Perhaps that's why it's currently worth $2.5 million. The model is one of BMW’s most revered models by far.
1959 Porsche 718 RSK Spyder
Auctioning off this car at the Amelia Island Sale came with many expectations; it was estimated to top out at $4 million. What makes this car so special, you may be asking? It was a multiple race winner and was featured on the web-series.
Unfortunately and disappointingly, bids maxed out at $2.6 million. It didn't matter to Jerry, though; he said he wanted to pass the beauty on to other collectors who would enjoy it the way he does.
2011 Porsche-911 GT3 RS 40 1
This Porsche produces 500 hp at 8,250 RPMs with 339-foot pounds of torque. Crazy, right?! Seinfeld had this model optioned with the most expensive parts. He added a one-off black paint job, black leather interior, and an unpainted carbon fiber hood.
All of this together makes the purchase price jump to around $250,000, though Jerry estimates the wheels could go for a much as $1 million.
