The binge-worthy 'Seinfeld" may have been a show about nothing, but "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" is about two of the best things in life: cars and coffee. Jerry Seinfeld's web series talk show gives us so much of both; it makes us giddy with ride-reveling glee.

Here are our favorites from the giggle-inducing show:

1952 Volkswagen Beetle

1952 Volkswagen Beetle

Season 1

Guest: Larry David

"I always loved this car."

It's not surprising Seinfeld chose long-time friend Larry David as his first guest. What may be more surprising is Jerry's automotive choice.

Decidedly unfussy, but just as cute as can be, the 1952 Volkswagen Bug is gorgeously restored (in azure blue), and it couldn't be more lovely careening down the roads of Los Angeles.

It's hard not to love Seinfeld even more when he sums up the 25-horsepower car perfectly, "And if, like me, you believe true humility is always in short supply, this is the car for you."

Viewers get pulled away from the blue beauty to laugh away as Seinfeld and David riff about the car and eat pancakes. As addicting as breakfast with these two legends sounds, taking this Bug for a spin sounds equally delicious.

Season 2

Guest: David Letterman

"This is a treat for me. You're driving the Paul Newman Volvo. This is fantastic."

Gotta love Dave and his love of sweet cars. The legendary former late-night host gives Jerry the chance to get behind the wheel of his souped-up 1995 Volvo station wagon outfitted with a 380-hp racing engine. Perhaps the coolest part? Dave loves the car because of another screen legend, Paul Newman. "He called me one day and said, 'The guy is building me a Volvo station wagon with a racing engine, would you like one?' And because it was Paul Newman, I was a little intimidated and I said, 'Yes, I do, Paul. I'd like one of those cars.'" Sort of brick red meets candy apple in color, the Volvo is beautiful, powerful and, um, explosive. Letterman regales with a story about how it caught fire on the Merritt Parkway while he was rushing to an appointment with a cardiologist. Hey, if Dave can laugh about that, so can we.

Season 2

Guest: Chris Rock

"Wow. What is this?"

"It's the most beautiful car in the world."

Bold and boisterous, it's no shocker Seinfeld refers to the Lamborghini Miura as "eyebrow-frizzing, retina-melting and absurdly gorgeous." Just 43 inches tall, painted in Arancio Borealis (Italian for "orange"), 360-hp V12 mounted sideways, with (be still our hearts), eyelashes mounted on its headlights. Love. As Jerry enthuses, it's incredibly masculine and incredibly feminine at the same time. And the fact that Jerry brings the side-splitting genius of Chris Rock along for a ride? Per.fec.tion.

1967 Volvo 1800S

Season 3

Guest: Tina Fey

"Ooh ... it's pretty! Is this a real seatbelt?"

Sturdy and incredibly reliable, Seinfeld introduces the Volvo 1800S before picking up his guest, the ridiculously talented ruler of "30 Rock," Tina Fey. He boasts that the 1800S has a 4-cylinder, 118-hp engine, its top speed is 109 mph and, according to Jerry, it "will last forever." We could say the same about Jerry and Tina's uproarious chemistry. The pair hit up a bakery for a Cronut (remember those?) before hitting the road again. Sweets in a super sweet ride? Yum.

1976 Ford LTD Country Squire

1976 Ford LTD Country Squire

Season 4

Guest: Sarah Jessica Parker

"I can't get over how gorgeous this is!"

Jerry seems to gush about most of the rides featured on CCC, but SJP's Ford LTD? NSM (not so much). "I don't like this car," he says. "It's big, it's wasteful, it's got stupid fake wood paneling on the side. It's an LTD. LTD stands for Limited. You know what it's limited to? How many of these damn things we can sell, that's what it's limited to!" But we sort of love the woodgrain paneling and the long, boxy feel of this car (and we totally get why Parker does too. Her family had an LTD when she was growing up. Just the heartbeat-esque sound of the blinker gives her the feels.) Its cheery-red color lends itself perfectly to the giddy banter between her and the show's host. In our minds, the LTD is retro chic and a bit unexpected, pretty much like Sarah Jessica herself.

1971 Ferrari Daytona 365 GTB/4

Season 5

Guest: Amy Schumer

"Wow! This is the best! This is the coolest."

When Jerry revs the engine of the FLY Yellow Ferrari, he can't help but gush "Mama mia!" With its 352-hp V12, Jerry says it's a perfect match for the no-holds-barred comedic powerhouse that is Schumer, saying, "I picked this car for her because this chick has some horsepower." Sleek and stunning, it's a feast for the peepers. However, it did have some performance issues, leading the duo to pull over, pop the hood and lament their predicament. With more than a few laughs, of course.

1964 Aston Martin DB5

1964 Aston Martin DB5

Season 6

Guest: Julia Louis-Dreyfus

"It's dapper, it's dashing, it's distinguished, it's deadly."

Seinfeld chooses a gorgeous Aston Martin DB5 for his former co-star, due to Louis-Dreyfus's stealthy, brilliant comedic chops. "You are the James Bond of comedy," he tells her. "Whatever the situation, you come in and kill it." Aside from the perfect, perfect banter between these two, we are slayed by the pristine, silver-birch, all-aluminum, 280-hp, Straight-6 machine. It's a joy to watch this car take to the streets, and we can't get enough of the reminiscing about all things Seinfeld. A trip to the fictional Monk's Cafe would have us swooning.

1970 Plymouth Superbird

1970 Plymouth Superbird

Season 7

Guest: Will Ferrell

"It's happy, it's silly. Listen to the horn! -- beep! beep! -- that's the roadrunner!"

Cartoonishly goofy and a bit over the top, the Plymouth Superbird may be the most perfect match to the stoic (and often silly) Will Ferrell. While this Superbird has roadrunner cartoon decals, a five-foot-tall rear wing and bright-blue paint, it's also lightening fast. Its 440-cu in. 6-barrel engine can hit 200 mph. Farrell can also pack a serious comedic punch, and although Plymouth built this car to woo race-car driver Richard Petty, its biggest fans are these jokesters who keep each other in stitches, mile after mile.

1959 Triumph TR3

1959 Triumph TR3

Season 8

Guest: John Oliver

"Really, what's the point? It's small, it's impractical. It's honestly just a ridiculous way to move people from place to place."

Ok, so Jerry's not a big fan of the Triumph, but its clear he loves his guest -- the brilliant British late-night host who's know for his sense and sensibility as much as his silliness. The Triumph -- a cute little button of a car in pearl white with a black top and matching interior -- is both playful and a bit serious (its got a 4-cylinder engine, with 105 hp). And who couldn't use a nice combination of that in their lives? Seinfeld enthuses that Oliver is a "perfectly logical, absurd human being." Not that there's anything wrong with that.

1958 Bentley S1 Continental

Season 9

Guest: Cedric The Entertainer

"It's slanty, it's swoopy, it's irrelevant."

Ahhh … a Caribbean-blue Bentley. Bold, fierce and just a thing of beauty. It's got beautiful parchment seats with tan inserts, a 4.9-liter 6-cylinder in-line engine, and a 4-speed gear box. But really, it's just kind of fun. Seinfeld was spot on when he quipped that Cedric the Entertainer belongs in a car like this. "I like guys that make you feel good that they feel good." Yup. "A guy who's made it, lives it and loves it." Those are Jerry's words, and we couldn't have said it better ourselves. Bentleys just ooze success and stature. Who wouldn't want to be along for that ride?

From Volvos to Bentleys, and Ferraris to Fords, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" has us in stitches, one hilarious mile at a time.
