The Appeal

The 1982 Biturbo represented a turning point in the history of Maserati, contributing more than any other model in transforming the House of the Trident from a small niche manufacturer to one of the world's leading brands in the production of high performance luxury cars.

Equipped with sophisticated, powerful and innovative V6 engines with 2 turbochargers and 3 valves per cylinder and a plush and attractive interior finished with wood veneers, exquisite velvet and soft leather, the compact, elegant and dynamic BiTurbo immediately appealed to the demanding well-heeled customers of the eighties, eager for ever faster, more prestigious and luxurious cars and became a great commercial success, both in Europe and in the United States.

ASI (Italian Historic Automotoclub) registered since 2014, this particular BiTurbo is very elegant, with its rare and charming deep brown original paint and its sumptuous cabin finished with high-quality velvet and wood inlays which take us back to the early eighties, making us experience an atmosphere of happy and optimistic elegance characterized by great attention to detail, luxury and elegant understatement.

The car is in excellent shape, having received a professional bodywork restoration in 2000 and having undergone a comprehensive maintenance between 2022 and 2023, including a thorough engine service with new filters and fluids, a new timing belt, new brake fluid, an overhauled steering box, a new water pump and a new velvet headliner. 
The car has only traveled about 250km since servicing was performed.

This BiTurbo just got its 2023 MOT certificate and is ready to go, with no further maintenance required.

With four careful and passionate owners from new and still equipped with its original number plates, this Maserati has lived a very pampered life, having been in the possession of a Milanese lady until 2000, when it was acquired by a well-known Maserati enthusiast who kept it for many years. It was then sold to an official Maserati dealer and finally acquired by the seller, an esteemed collector who has preserved it with the utmost care. 

The Maserati BiTurbo was an important step in the relaunching of one of the most glorious brands in the automotive world and today is increasingly sought after, having shrugged off the largely undeserved reputation of being a problematic car, thanks to the passionate care of conscientious owners, who treated their BiTurbos with the care and respect appropriate for a top-level car.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
€0 to €9,999 €100.00
€10,000 to €49,999 €250.00
€50,000 to €99,999 €500.00
€100,000 + €1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
