A set of three Porsches belonging to comedian Jerry Seinfeld are to cross the block at Gooding & Co’s Amelia Island auction.

They include a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder (valued at $5m-6m), a 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster (upwards of $2m) and a 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR (north of $1.2m).

They are to be sold as single lots.

The Spyder in particular is an exceptional example of its type. It’s offered in rare unrestored condition, complete with original engine, and features just 10,300 miles on the clock.

Both of the other cars have been raced extensively in recent years.

Seinfeld said in a statement: "I just love cars. And I still love these cars.

"But it's time to send some of them back into the world, for someone else to enjoy, as I have."

Seinfeld began his career as a standup in the mid-1970s, before moving into TV with the hit sitcom Seinfeld – which he co-wrote with Larry David.

More recently he’s appears in a web series entitled Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

He’s a major car collector and owns close to 50 Porsches.
