    Isn't there a 10% auction fee and Vat on top of the 300k pounds?

    Actually RM have upped their prices in the UK. Anything over £200k hammer is at 12.5% +VAT. If it's under £200k you pay hammer +15% +VAT. Extortionate in my view. And no doubt that harmed the sale. FYI, when they list a car as sold that does not include the VAT on the buyers fee.

    This car looked well presented compared to some of the other things I saw in the room ('75 Turbo) but the overall lack of enthusiasm on the night was palpable. This was not a great sale. There are 3 more auctions (!) this weekend in Europe at Chantilly, Leggenda e Passione and Goodwood, so you sensed nobody was in a hurry to buy.

    If the £300k bid was real, that suggests a buyers full price of £345/$455k/Euro 376 was on the table.

    This car did not sell. That was high bid.

    Got it, they often list a car (temporarily) as sold when in fact it hasn't.
