At their global headquarters in Manhattan, RM Sotheby’s recently concluded a record 2015 auction season with over 73.5 million in sales. At the exclusively culminated ‘Driven by Disruption’ event, 31 pioneering rare cars were on display – cars that revived New York’s love for all things gramour, cars and sex appeal. I couldn’t pretend to be level headed seeing the exclusive pictures of some of the most gorgeous cars on display listed on The Verge, and I wanted to share them with our readers here.

The carefully curated auction cum exhibition was a display of RM Sotheby’s extensive global reach. The auction had bidders from 18 countries around the world, which even included a good number of young car lovers.
