American Comedian Jerry Seinfeld Rare Porsche 911 GT3 RS To Go Under Hammer For $330,000. An avid Porsche collector, Seinfeld is rumoured to have 80 examples of the Porsche. His most treasured is 911 which he customized by himself.
The 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS was developed by Seinfeld through the Porsche Stuttgart’s “Special Wishes” program. Seinfeld, who once said Porsche is the “essence of sports car perfection,” customized the car with more than $250,000 worth of extras to boost the final auction price of $449,890.
The custom-built add-ons include a rare paint-to-sample Liquid Chrome Blue Metallic exterior that also appears on Porsche’s 918 Spyder, an axle lift system, carbon-ceramic brakes, the sport chrono package, LED lighting, navigation, a 23-gallon extended-range fuel tank.
Porsche enthusiasts will likely notice Seinfeld removed the 911 GT3 RS’s giant rear wing. This signature feature, which harkens back to the car’s duck-tailed predecessors, is actually included with the car and can be added or removed when desired.
On the road, the sleek two-door packs a 4.0-liter flat-six that produces 520 hp and can rocket the car from zero to 60 mph in just three seconds. It’s also fitted with independent suspension and carbon-ceramic breaks to assist with handling and stopping.
Since it was delivered to Seinfeld, the 911 has resided in New York and California and covered only 1,500 miles. Furthermore, Canepa serviced the car in 2019 to get it ready for its next owner.
This isn’t the first time Seinfeld has parted ways with one of his beloved Porsches. In 2016, he auctioned off 16 examples from his extensive fleet at Gooding & Company’s blockbuster Amelia Island Auction. Seinfeld was subsequently sued for allegedly selling an “inauthentic” Porsche for $1.5 million at the Florida sale.
This particular 2016 dream machine will go under the hammer at the Bonhams Supercars on Sunset auction come April 10. It has been given a pre-sale estimate of between $290,000 and $330,000.
