Should be about $650k plus buyers fees at most. Then again, apparently someone paid $650k for a non-runner LP400 so weird things can happen.

are there sellers fees too?

If hammer falls at whatever price, how much does the seller get?

Always, unless you negotiate otherwise. As the Miura is the star attraction it's entirely possible the sellers fees are reduced.

Seller gets the hammer price less sellers fees.

My bet is the auctioneer will make no Twiggy related claims.  No idea re price either way.

You would hope so; but I've seen some outrageous claims, lies and inaccuracies made by auctioneers of much more highly renowned companies than this.

The buyers fees are listed as 13.75% (inc GST I think), but no mention of sellers fees.

What's it likely to be?????

That buyers fee is outrageous.

I too love the Citroen.   :thumbsup:

bah humbug!

Statement of fact my good fellow. If it's driving back it should break down or catch fire before it hits the state border.

I was thinking an optimistic spotter would hide near Ballarat...

what fact!

It's myth. Miuras need a certain fettling for sure, but most of the stories are chinese whispers.....

I get more modern cars arrive on tow trucks, than older cars with points/carbs....

I'd rather take a Miura (freshly tuned ands serviced by me) on a long road trip, than a modern cyber flappy gurgle rattler

You would have to look at the contract; but it's normally in the same vicinity as the buyers fee. The fees are obviously where the auction company makes their profit after covering costs of holding the auction.

Sometimes the fees have a sliding scale based on the hammer price.

I seem to recall the buyers fee on motorcycles at the Monaco RM auction I went to were 17% plus taxes.
