South Florida developer Gil Dezer has always had a fixation for things that go fast. And last night, the real estate tycoon/self-proclaimed motorhead showed off his private jet and collection of pricey super cars for CNBC’s “Secret Lives of the Super Rich.”

Dezer, whose firm Dezer Development has erected several residential high-rises in Sunny Isles Beach and is on the eve of opening its Porsche Design Tower condominium, appeared on the Wednesday night season premiere of CNBC’s “Secret Lives of the Super Rich” for an inside look at the developer’s most expensive toys.

“They’re investments you can enjoy,” he said on the show.

His collection of customized Porsches is valued in the millions, and each one is painted his favorite shade of silver, according to the show. He even named his $1 million Porsche 918 Spider “Dezerv8r” after the “Dezervator” car elevator in the Porsche Design Tower.

The most expensive of the lot shown in his collection is a $1.5 million Bugatti Veyron, of which 450 were ever made.

Dezer’s prized possession, however, is his $17 million Gulfstream IV private jet. Even that received his personal touch: the whole plane is that particular silver, and he replaced all of the seats with ones similar to his Ferrari 458 Italia. Each one costs about $55,000, by the way.

“If it looks good in the car, it probably looks good in the plane too,” he told CNBC.  Sean Stewart-Muniz
