Seinfeld’s Low-Mileage 2017 Acura NSX Hits The Auction Block

If you’d like to get your hands on a low-mileage 2017 Acura NSX with nearly $50,000 worth of options, you need to hurry up and place a winning bid before somebody else beats you to it.

Oh and did we mention that this car, chassis number 00004, used to belong to Jerry Seinfeld? It’s the same NSX he used to film the last episode of season 9 of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Seinfeld went on to give the Japanese supercar to his friend, late comedian and actor Bon Einstein.

The car is now being auctioned off through Bring a Trailer on behalf of Einstein’s estate by a family friend, and by the looks of it, it’s in great condition – the fact that it has just 2,556 miles (4,113 km) on the clock is also something its future owner will undoubtedly appreciate.

The exterior is finished in Nord Gray Metallic, and also comes with an optional carbon fiber roof panel, carbon fiber front splitter, diffuser and rear spoiler. Its multi-piston calipers with carbon-ceramic rotors alone cost $9,900 when new.

Inside, there is Saddle leather and black Alcantara accents throughout. Then there’s the $2,900 Carbon Fiber Interior Sport Package, ELS Studio surround sound system, powered and heated sport seats, Apple CarPlay, rearview camera system and more.

As for the power unit, it is a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6, hidden underneath the optional $3,600 carbon fiber cover. The ICE unit produces 500 HP (506 PS) and 406 lb-ft (549 Nm) of torque, but is aided by a mid-mounted electric motor for a total system output of 573 HP (580 PS) and 476 lb-ft (644 Nm) of torque. That’s good enough for a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) time of just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 191 mph (307 km/h).

Back in 2017, this car cost a whopping $200,500. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    Christ… the last thing the NSX needs is an association with a (totally not murdered) pedophile

    Cant blame him for selling it, the 2019 model has so many improvements, improvements that should have been on the very first release of this generation.

      Good to know. I’m not an Acura fan, but I do not agree with the general NSX hate. It does bring the price down and I’d love to have one, so I guess it’s not all bad.

      Surely “Can’t blame him for selling it because he’s dead” is what you mean?

    This is the joke I remember that made Seinfeld lose it when Bob was on a segment of Seinfeld’s Cars and Coffee. Bonus Trivia. Bob’s brother is Albert Brooks

    There’s a guy lost in the desert. He sees someone, so he eventually staggers up to the guy, and pleads. “Water! Water!”
    The other guy says, “I don’t have any water. I’m a tie salesman. Do you want to buy a tie?”
    The first guy just repeats, “Water! Water!”
    “About an hour that way– over that dune– there’s a restaurant that has water.”
    The first man staggers in the direction that the man is pointing, goes over the dune, and disappears from sight.

    About four hours later, the same man returns, crawling on his hands and knees. He’s sunburned and near death. “Water! Water!”
    The tie salesman says, “I thought that you went to the place. You didn’t get any water there?”
    “They wouldn’t let me in without a tie.”

    Yeah… whups….

    You have to admire his taste. This is one of the nicest looking NSX’s I’ve seen.
