The fifth season of Jerry Seinfeld’s web series “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee” starts today with Kevin Hart. The hyper-literally named series has provided funny and candid moments with some of the most hilarious people on the planet. It’s also shown some ridiculously awesome cars.
To celebrate the season premiere, we took a look back at the 10 best cars Seinfeld has driven his funny friends around in.
10. 1976 Triumph TR6
Guests: Colin Quinn and Mario Joyner, Season 2
The “square-jawed bulldog British sports car” has a 6-cylinder, 150-horsepower engine and one of the most confusing dashboards ever invented.
9. 1960 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II
Guests: Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks, Season 1
“As a car, it’s horrible, but it’s a nice living room with wheels,” is how Seinfeld summed up this luxury Rolls that just makes you crave Grey Poupon.
8. 1970 Mercedes 280 SL
Guest: Alec Baldwin, Season 1
The 170-horsepower Benz is a “car for guys that want a sports car but don’t really want to be inconvenienced.”
7. 1981 DeLorean DMC-12
Guest: Patton Oswalt, Season 3
“This has dark cultural history. This is 80s hubris,” is how Oswalt reacted upon seeing the stainless steel time machine with gull-wing doors. Unfortunately, the car broke down after about 20 feet.
6. 1958 Cadillac El Dorado Seville
Guest: Don Rickles, Season 2
This Caddy is “the mobile version of Las Vegas,” according to Seinfeld. As for performance, it “goes 0-60 in 10.7 seconds, but who cares? The longer people are looking at you in this car, the better.”
5. 1968 AMC Gremlin
Guest: Jon Stewart, Season 4
As Seinfeld says, “the Gremlin was even more horrible,” than the Ford Pinto, but it was the first car Stewart owned. When the Daily Show host heard his old ride start up again, he said, “That is the sound of virginity.”
4. 1969 Jaguar XKE Series 2 E-Type Convertible
Guest: Sarah Silverman, Season 2
Enzo Ferrari called this Jag, which tops out at 144 mph, “the most powerful car ever designed.” Seinfeld said the car reminded him of Silverman, which may be stretching things a bit.
3. 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge
Guest: Howard Stern, Season 3
Seinfeld says that the GTO is for “the guy who wants to tell the world, ‘I will not be going quietly,’” and with its 370-horsepower V8 there isn’t much chance of that.
2. 1949 Porsche 356/2
Guest: Jay Leno, Season 3
It looks “like a little alien flying saucer,” but this hand-formed aluminum car was one of the first production cars Porsche ever made and still has a similar feel to a modern-day Porsche.
1. 1969 Lamborghini P400S Miura
Guest: Chris Rock, Season 2
Only 43 inches tall, this Lambo is “incredibly masculine and incredibly femine at the same time,” Seinfeld says. “It is in my opinion the most beautiful car ever designed.” It’s tough to argue. The fact that Seinfeld and Rock got pulled over during the episode only adds to the car’s charm.
