Top 5 Road Rally-Ready Cars from Jerry Seinfeld’s Collection

Iconic comedian and East Ender Jerry Seinfeld doesn’t just have a huge sense of humor—he’s also known for having a huge car collection (what did you think we were going to say?). Seinfeld shows off his luxury cars on his series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which features Seinfeld taking a drive with fellow comedians.

Here are five cars featured on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee that would be just perfect for the Bridgehampton Road Rally and Tour d’Hamptons presented by the Bridgehampton Museum and Dan’s Papers. You can watch Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee for free online at comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com.

1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe
Showcased in “Just Tell Him You’re the President” featuring President Barack Obama
This sexy car has a 327 cubic inch V8, four-barrel carb and proper knockoff wheels. 1963 was the only year that Corvette used a split window.

1967 Mazda Cosmo Sport
Showcased in “You Can Go Cho Again” featuring Margaret Cho
“What in the world is this?” Seinfeld jokes of this white car. Mazda made this car for the Japanese market. Admittedly a bit kitschy, it has a Wankel engine—a triangle spinning in an oval instead of a piston. The Cosmo Sport has a very cool, “secret agent” vibe.

1968 Pontiac Firebird 400
Showcased in “Escape from Syosset” featuring Judd Apatow
This powerful convertible has rally wheels, hood-mounted tach, custom exhaust tips, auxiliary gauge clusters, rear-mount antenna and more. In 1968 it was over $3,000.

1970 Mercedes 280 SL
Showcased in “Just a Lazy Shiftless Bastard” featuring Alec Baldwin
This red car has a 170-horsepower, straight-six engine, 2.8 liters. As Seinfeld says, this is a car for “guys that don’t want to be inconvenienced.”

1971 Ferrari Daytona 365 GTB/4
Showcased in “I’m Wondering What It’s Like to Date Me” featuring Amy Schumer
This car has a 352-horsepower V12. Seinfeld’s model is “fly yellow” with a black interior.
