There isn't a "Buy It Now" price and if you win the auction you have to collect the Dell PowerEdge R410 from Stockholm.
“This is indeed the physical web server from which the leaked cablegate material was released, complete with hard drives, motherboard and everything! It can be plugged in and used immediately. We ourselves put it on a pedestal and displayed it as a museum item in our underground Thule Brunkow Ridge data center in central Stockholm, as a symbol for our values as a hoster and ISP. Note: The physical server is owned by Bahnhof. Wikileaks rented the server as part of a hosting contract. It was never used for any other client than Wikileaks.* For closer specification, see the page of the eBay auction. All hardware is original, including the hard disks. Those have however been erased according to the U.S. specification DoD 5220.22-M where every byte of the hard disk is overwritten several times. The original information cannot be recreated, not even by NSA.”

Teen drops £21,000 on historic WikiLeaks server using dad's eBay account « Wired
After 10 days and 93 bids, a historic server used to host WikiLeaks' treasure trove of secret documents has sold on eBay -- to a 17-year-old who used his dad's email account without permission.The winning bid was $33,000 (£21,000). But according to Bahnhof CEO John Karlung, soon after the auction closed on 13 September, he got a message from the buyer, saying he wants to back out of the deal. His son bought the item without his knowledge or permission.
