RM Sotheby's rounded out a banner 2015 season in New York City on 10 December, realizing more than $73.5 million in auction sales with 81 percent of all lots sold during its exclusive 'Driven by Disruption' event.
Held at Sotheby's global headquarters in Manhattan, the two-hour, 45 minute 'Driven by Disruption' auction presented 31 pioneering automobiles and select memorabilia before a packed house. Illustrating the extensive combined global reach of both RM and Sotheby's, bidders hailed from 18 countries, including Hong Kong, Brazil, and Russia, with 22 percent representing new clientele to RM Sotheby's.
As a prelude to the sale, RM hosted a six-day exhibition on Sotheby's 10th floor galleries, which attracted thousands of enthusiasts to the property. Carefully curated, the exhibition provided a magnificent showcase of not only automotive history, but also the company's creative and inventive presentation.
