Last Friday a chunk of Jerry Seinfeld’s car collection finally hit the auction block – and sold for a total of $22.24 million.
Of the 17 cars that were up for sale at the Amelia Island Auction in Florida, only one failed to find a new home – a prototype 2000 Porsche Carrera GT which was estimated to bring the funnyman $1.5 – $2.25 million.
The big earner of the collection was Seinfeld’s 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder – the same model James Dean was driving during his fatal crash in 1955 – which sold for $5.3 million.
Also sold was a 1973 Porsche 917/30 Can-Am Spyder that brought in $3 million, a 1959 Porsche 718 RSK that went for $2.86 million and a 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR that sold for $2.31 million.
Along with the multitude of Porsche’s, Seinfeld’s 1960 Volkswagen Beetle sold for $121,000 – more than twice the asking price, and his 1964 Volkswagen Camper went for $99,000.
