RM/SOTHEBY'S DRIVEN BY DISRUPTION NYC AUCTION PRESENTATION


Two years ago CARHUNTER announced an auto museum in NYC although it was only for a week!
http://carzhunt.blogspot.com/2013/11/art-of-automobile.html
RM Auctions and Sotheby's has done it again with Driven by Disruption!
To be clear it was not a new museum, but a very very high end vehicle auction!
I want to thank the organizers for being so gracious to invite the public in all week to enjoy a display of cars that most of would likely never be able to appreciate in person.  
A link to the auction and results if you would like if the suspense is killing you!
Not all sold, some went below expectations and some just went crazy- I will post a few prices here.
I have posted most of the expected prices for each Lot, to be clear note the numbers because most are well INTO the millions! 
The presentation was perfect, lighting, positioning and displays all the best.
