New York auction houses are up by more than $6 million on Thursday as buyers and sellers continued to battle for the title to the world’s biggest auto auction, the world of luxury car auctions and the most expensive house auction.
New York’s auctions accounted for more than half of all the sales at $6 billion or more.
The auction houses said Thursday’s figures were driven by sales at the $20 million, $40 million and $60 million range.
