TRENDING CARS ÜBER CARS & THEIR CELEBRITY OWNERS PORSCHE 959 - JERRY SEINFELD The twin-turbocharged Porsche 959 laid waste to its competition when it was released in the 1980s and is still considered one of the greatest sports cars ever made. Only 337 were ever produced, one of which is the dominating centerpiece of Jerry Seinfeld’s extensive and impressive Porsche collection. The perfect marriage of the 959’s expert aerodynamic design, ingenious turbocharged engine and unique full-time four-wheel-drive system created staggering performance figures that surpassed all expectations. • Twin-turbocharged &intercooled DOHC flat-6 • 444 horsepower & • 0-100mph in 8.8 seconds • 195 mph top speed The Porsche 959 starts at $700,000 and is available at The Collection, located at 200 Bird Road, Coral Gables.

FERRARI ENZO - NICHOLAS CAGE Once owned by actor Nicholas Cage, the Ferrari Enzo is a gorgeous supercar packed with staggering power. Essentially a street-legal Formula One racecar, this lightning-fast two-seater was released in 2003 to commemorate Ferrari’s first Formula One title of the new millennium, with only 349 ever produced. True to the spirit of racing, the Enzo places the 366-cubic-inch engine directly behind the front seats and it doesn’t bother with any unnecessary luxury accommodations, like a radio. • 6.0 liter aluminum-block V-12 • 660 horsepower & 0-100 in 6.6 seconds • 217 mph top speed The Ferrari Enzo starts at $670,000 and is available at The Collection, located at 200 Bird Road, Coral Gables.

MERCEDES SLR MCLAREN - JAY LENO A favorite ride of car enthusiast and occasional late-night host Jay Leno, the Mercedes SLR McLaren is a ferocious grand touring car that combines the high-end luxury of Mercedes with the aggressive performance of McLaren. The exterior body screams supercar, with serrated side vents and gullwing doors, but the car is still meticulously designed to maintain the luxury feel; the windshield wipers work at 200 mph. Even the monster engine is optimized by the electronics system, ensuring you’ll drive comfortably on the cul-de-sac or the runway. • 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 • 617 horsepower and 0-60 in 3.6 seconds • 207 mph top speed The Mercedes SLR McLaren starts at $500,000.
