Earlier Catawiki, a Amsterdam-based auction organization, estimated the old Vespa scooter could be sold for between $268,150 - $348,600 or equivalent to Rp.3.5 - 4.5 billion. However, the expected numbers could not be reached until the last deadline of the auction, with the highest bid to be halted at $195,748 or equivalent to Rp.2.6 billion.
