at a hammer price up to 1.000.000,00 Euro the buyer´s premium is 29.75 % (including VAT); the buyer's premium amounts to 23.8 % (including VAT) of the winning bid for classic cars.

at a hammer price between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro the buyer´s premium is 23,80 % (including VAT) for the (partial) amount of 1.000.000,00 Euro and 17,85% (including VAT) for the (partial) amount between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro

at a hammer price more than 2.000.000,01 Euro the buyer´s premium is 17.85 % (including VAT) for the (partial) amount of 1.000.000,00 Euro, 17,85% (including VAT) for the (partial) amount between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro and 14,28% (including VAT) for the (partial) amount beginning with 2.000.000,01 Euro.
