Jerry Seinfeld has sold a total of 15 Porsches from his prized collection at the Amelia Island Auction in Florida where he grabbed a cool $22 million.

It was a profitable Friday night for comedian Jerry Seinfeld as he made a fortune selling some of his Porsches, even though the actor said he never bought the cars to make a profit. The highest-grossing car sold at the auction was a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder that went under the hammer for $5.3 million and was in the $5M to $6M estimation made by Gooding & Company.

The night wasn’t an entire success as a 2000 Porsche Carrera GT prototype which was estimated to go for $1.5M to $2.3M failed to sell. In addition, a 1973 Porsche 917/30 Can-Am Spyder which was believed to be the main star of the event underperformed after going for $3 million, even though the estimation was for $5M to $7M.

Gooding & Company says the cars that were up for auction represented only around 10% of Jerry Seinfeld’s collection. Besides the 16 Porsches, there were also two Volkswagens, a 1960 Beetle sold for $121,000 (a new Beetle auction all-time record) and a 1964 Camper that was auctioned for $99,000.
