from what I heard on the 480k bmw....

sold to a collector with a small museum near soladas? california.

guy made his $ as an inventor.

anyhow, it didnt meet the reserve during auction for 400k. (I bid it up to 390k, but wasnt going any higher )

bonhams has it listed as sold for 480. so Im sure they got their fees, maybe not the rediculous 18% or whatever it was, but they got something. even at 10% from each end, thats 80k, a very healthy payday.

the buyer probably wont even ride it.
