$75 million, selling 75 million dollars worth of cars in less than two hours.

How will it work?

It is a normal auction.

We have 30 of the best cars representing all of the different eras.

We have them all on display on the 10th floor at sotheby's. it is never been done before.

That must have been a logistical seen.

I cannot begin to tell you.

We have a sale on thursday here in new york.

It is something in between.

People are spending a lot of money.

People have been coming to see the cars.

People are calling in from all over the world.

Talk about some of the cars for auction.

The tiger is one of them.

It is a tiny, micro car.

There are very few of them.

It is the best, little micro car that you can buy.

That will be about $200,000 or $300,000. the for ari quest -- for ari?

It is the other side of the spectrum.

It has 12 cylinders.

It will be about $15 million.

One of the more expensive ones.

That is a little bit of new york history, specially built for the duke and duchess of windsor.

They cap that here in new york city.
