(AP) "Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster)," a monumental silkscreen by Andy Warhol, is heading to a New York City auction where it could fetch more than $60 million.


The piece belongs to Warhol's "Death and Disaster" series and captures the immediate aftermath of a car crashing into a tree. It measures 8 feet by 13 feet.


Sotheby's is offering Warhol silkscreen on Nov. 13. The auction house says it is one of only four "Car Crash" works of that scale and the only one remaining in private hands. Sotheby's says the work has been in the same collection since 1988.


Warhol's "Green Car Crash" holds the record for the artist. It sold for $71.7 million in 2007 at Christie's.
