The article noted that a certain Andy Warhol work named the "Silver Car Crash," or the Double Disaster sold for a whopping $105.4 million at an auction that took place in New York City at Sotheby's auction.

As per NYDailyNews, the sale was unexpected as the painting had only been expected to fetch around $60 to $80 million. Nevertheless, the painting has sold for much higher than that. The artwork was reportedly a prized 1963 Andy Warhol painting that was able to capture the immediate aftermath of a car crash.

According to the description of the NFT on Binance, the piece is considered a rare masterpiece that was created only a few months before the death of the famous artist Andy Warhol. The three-image artwork shows a very interesting color scheme in which the Athe artist's own green, orange, and lavender heads all float against their somewhat empty and black background. 

The wig is also meant to explode just like fireworks, which then revivifies the appearance of the modern 20th century's art master for the remaining few months of his life.

The piece is considered a very important piece in the selection of Andy Warhol's art.
