If you weren’t in the city this week, you missed “A Life Of Luxury” from Sotheby’s Auction House. The automotive excitement was handled by RM Sotheby’s, one of the most renowned partnerships in the world of collector cars. The ICONS collection was their 3rd auto auction in NYC, and it saw 11 cars sell for over a million dollars. We offered a preview last week that showcased six of the most anticipated cars. We thought one of them would steal the show, but RM always finds a Dark Horse among the crowd. Tell us if these hammer prices match the market.
