The 8 Coolest Cars from ‘Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee’

The 8 Coolest Cars from ‘Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee’

Comedians and Cars Getting Coffee is undoubtedly one of our favorite Netflix Original series. It mixes some of our favorite things: Seinfeld, classic automobiles, and interesting people telling interesting stories. Oh, and, coffee, we guess. Not only does every episode feature a different interviewee, but it also features a different automobile, each of which Seinfeld tries to relate to the person he’s interviewing. And while they’re all badass, some are more badass than others.

1962 VW Split Window Double Cab Bus—Michael Richards

The intro to this episode starts with a voiceover from Jerry Seinfeld: “This is a 1962 VW Split Window Double Cab Bus in Dove Blue, Primer Grey, and Rust. The interior is grey vinyl and duct tape. It’s equipped with a 1971 60-horsepower dual-port four-cylinder engine.” Most importantly, Seinfeld notes the bus was used, at one point, as a service repair truck for a VW-Porsche repair shop in Campbell, California. It looks like a rust heap, but the trained eye will recognize it’s one of the rarer VW buses out there, and like most of us with a love of these old air-cooled VW’s, the duct-tape and gray-primer-slash-rust exterior only added to the bus’ charm.

1969 Jaguar XKE Series 2 E-Type—Sarah Silverman

There’s nothing that speaks to us about classic cars like the kind of class and timeless style you’ll find on an old E-Type Jag. In the 4th Season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld rolls out to meet up with comedian Sarah Silverman. More importantly, he rolls out in a gorgeous ’69 XKE Series 2 E-Type convertible that looks absolutely mint, with its Opalescent Blue paint, dark blue leather interior, classic walnut steering wheel, and 4.2-liter DOHC inline six cylinder that packs a famous 260+ horsepower and does 0-60 in a little over 6.5 seconds. The car is perhaps most famous—and makes our list—because, as noted by Seinfeld, when Enzo Ferrari first laid eyes on the E-Type, he announced it was the most beautiful car ever designed. We tend to agree. Watch

1969 Pontiac GTO “The Judge”—Howard Stern

There are a handful of acceptable choices a man can make when asked which car epitomizes American Muscle. The Pontiac GTO “The Judge” is a top-shelf contender. In Season 2, Episode 4 of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld meets up with on-air legend Howard Stern, and they go for a rip in an authentic 1969 Pontiac GTO “The Judge,” complete with classic Hugger Orange paint, and what Seinfeld confirms is the 370-horsepower V8. But don’t be mistaken, the ‘69s still came with Pontiac’s 400 cubic inch motor, as the 455’s weren’t dumped under the hood of these monsters until 1970. Although, it is interesting to note that even then, the ’69 Judges are some of the most sought, because the sizeably smaller Ram Air IV motors still squeezed out a few more horsepower than their behemoth successors.

1959 Porsche RSK Spyder—Kevin Hart

Like most men with brains and a sense of adventure, we love a good Porsche. But in Season 2 Episode 2 of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, we get something really, really special. Seinfeld takes a spin in a 1959 Porsche RSK Spyder. These incredible race cars, built by Porsche from 1957 to 1962, took home huge victories in races like Le Mans and the Targa Florio. But this one is particularly special because, as noted by a stamp on its chassis, it’s the 19th one ever built in existence. It’s not a replica, it’s not a fake, and it’s not a remake. It’s the real deal. Despite its tiny motor, it’s a hell of a car—and a hell of a rare car, at that. Watch

1971 Ferrari Daytona 365 GTB/4—Amy Schumer

In the premiere episode of Season 3 of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Seinfeld rolls through in a 1971 Ferrari Daytona 365 GTB/4. Thought by many to be one of the best Ferrari’s of all time, the 352hp 4.4-liter V12 had a top speed of over 175 mph, and could do 0-60 in under 5.5 seconds. For its time, it was a bat out of hell. In fact, the Daytona 365 GTB/4 first found fame when it was driven by Dan Gurney and Brock Yates in the inaugural Cannonball Baker Sea-To-Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash, making it from New York City to Los Angeles in under 36 hours. It’s as beautiful as it is ballsy, and we loved watching Seinfeld rip around in this classic coupe. In fact, we have a theory that Seinfeld knew Schumer wouldn’t be his most popular guest, so he made sure he doubled down on a kick ass ride. Watch

1976 Lamborghini Countach LP40—Jim Carrey

When a lot of people think Lamborghini, the classic design of the Countach is what comes to mind. In Season 1 Episode 1 of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld takes comedy legend Jim Carrey for a ride in an absolutely stunning example of a 1976 Lamborghini Countach LP40, in gorgeous Tahiti Blue with a tan interior. The car features a 4-liter four-cam V12 that puts out a stout 370hp, and this episode is one of our favorites because Seinfeld and Carrey spend a lot of time in the car, winding through the gears and learning to love that famous “Italian wedge” design for which Lamborghini’s have become so known over the years. Watch

1963 Corvette Stingray—Barack Obama

Jerry Seinfeld pulled out all the stops for his interview with former U.S. President Barack Obama in the Season 2 premiere, dusting the cobwebs off of an incredibly rare—some would say the rarest—1963 Corvette Stingray. This impeccable example of American automotive design was the first—and only—year of the split rear window ‘Vette, and features the iconic Silver-Blue paint job, along with blue interior and original 327 V8 that came with anywhere from 250hp to 340hp, depending on the motor setup. Why is this ‘Vette worthy of the U.S. President? Seinfeld says it best: “Are there faster Corvettes? Yes! Are there bigger engine, tire-melting Corvettes? Of course! Are there cooler Corvettes? I don’t think so.” And he’s damn right. Watch

1970 Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird—Will Ferrell

For his interview with SNL regular-turned-Hollywood-A-lister, Jerry Seinfeld breaks out the undisputed king of the American muscle car generation—a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird. The crème de la crème of American Muscle—if “crème” was French for “huffing gas and listening to nothing but bald eagle screeches and Lynyrd fucking Skynyrd”—the Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird, with its iconic wedge front end and massive rear spoiler, was produced for just one year, and featured both 440 Big Blocks with three two-barrel carburetors, or Mopar’s infamous 7-liter 426 hemi, which featured two four-barrels, packed 425hp, and did 0-60 in 5.5 seconds. The cars were so fast that they were banned from NASCAR after the 1970 season because those pussies couldn’t handle the sheer balls of these cars.

Anyway, the Roadrunner Seinfeld gets to wheel around for the episode features the less valuable but still stout 390hp 440 cubic inch motor with the three two-barrel carbs setup. It could go over 200 mph, and it looks like this model was even signed by Richard Petty himself. Watch
