Ringo's was 102,300 GBP
and no bull, but someone in Red Bull bought Paul's in 2018.
I seen that and it was a no reserve auction but i don't see anywhere that it actually sold. Maybe the buyer wanted the sale price kept private.
No problem as i wasn't a bidder lol.

I saw it when it was in Sarasota Florida at a museum maybe 10 years ago while on a Mini run. It needed recommissioning then and still had the MK I Cosmic wheels on it then that it originally came with, the hydro was down in fact it had 4x4's underneath it holding it level.
The guy from the museum let us all sit in it and have our pictures taken.
