US comedian Jerry Seinfeld to sell 18 cars from his collection

Published 10 February 2016

Eighteen cars from US comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s collection are set to go under the hammer at the world famous Amelia Island auction next month. The cars, which are mainly Porsches and Volkswagens, will be offered for sale on 11 March.

Last month, Seinfeld announced he would be selling three of his Porsches – but auctioneers Gooding & Company have confirmed that 18 cars from his collection will be offered for sale, including 16 examples of Stuttgart’s finest.

Seinfeld said, ‘Each one of these cars is a pinnacle of mechanical culture to me. Many are the best examples that exist in the world.

‘I’ve loved being entrusted with their care, and I’m proud of the level to which we have brought each and every one of these wonderful machines.

‘Honestly, if I had unlimited time, space and attention span I would never sell one of them. And the reason I wanted to bid these cars farewell in this way is really just to see the look of excitement on the faces of the next owners who I know will be out of their minds with joy that they are going to get to experience them.

‘My enthusiasm for this pursuit remains quite insane and I am very fortunate to have many other cars I get to look after.’

Does anyone actually know how many cars Seinfeld owns? I've heard it's between 40 and 50 but it seems a bit of a mystery...
