Low miles, low chassis number, big price tag.
Jerry Seinfeld is not only a member of entertainment royalty but second only to Jay Leno in terms of famous collectors. Now age 65, he's combined his career and cars into a chat show called 'Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee,' where he picks out a suitable car to take his guest out for an interview. He's mainly known for being a huge Porsche fan, but he's a real gearhead and loves all kinds of cars.
Seinfeld is also a generous man and gifted this 2017 year low mileage chassis number Acura NSX to friend and fellow comedian, Bob Einstein, who passed away in January. The car is being sold as part of an estate sale via Bring a Trailer where, as of the time of writing, has already been bid up to $107,777. Unfortunately, it's not the first second-generation NSX off the production line as that went to Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports, and he isn't likely to part with it anytime soon. This one has the VIN ending in 004, has just 2,600 miles on the clock and, a clean Carfax report and Californian title, as well as the car's original sticker which shows an optioned up price of $200,500. Which is a shame as Seinfeld really wanted the first one.
The second-generation NSX features a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine working with three electric motors for a total of 573 horsepower and 476 lb-ft of torque, but it didn't set the car world on fire like the original generation. It's a massively underrated car and is capable of getting from zero to 60 mph in 3 seconds or less and a top speed estimated at a little under 200 mph.
This one has just $42,000 in options, with about a quarter of that being the carbon-ceramic brake package and another chunk being the carbon fiber roof panel. The paint is Nord Gray and the interior is decked out in Saddle brown leather. While NSXs don't typically bring big money, its low production number and celebrity ties could take it well over the original sticker price.
