Cars owned by Jerry Seinfeld Auction sold at Amelia Island auction
18 classic cars on the auction block
AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. – An exotic car auction with an extra dose of star power took place Friday in Amelia Island Friday.
Eighteen cars from Jerry Seinfeld's collection were on the auction block. All but two of them were rare Porsches. The most rare car was a 550 Spyder.
“Each one of these cars is a pinnacle of mechanical culture to me. Many are the best examples that exist in the world,” Seinfeld said.“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."
