1990 Alfa Romeo 75 Cloverleaf

***Vendor supplied images***

Highlights

  • £4,000 recent recommissioning by specialist Alex Jupe Motorsport
  • Four registered keepers from new 
  • Desirable black non-sunroof model with Veloce kit
  • Mechanically good with scope to sort cosmetics
  • MOT to November 2024 with no advisories 

The Appeal

The 75 is the last of a very special type of Alfa Romeo. The last car produced by the independent company and the last of the long run of rear drive transaxle saloons offering near perfect weight distribution. 
Then there is the Busso V6, one of the greatest engines of all time. It all makes the 75 3litre one of Alfa Romeo’s gems. The trouble is, finding a good one now is akin to searching for a needle in a haystack.
Problem solved. Here is not just a 75 V6 but a desirable non-sunroof model with Veloce kit in black. It has also been recently recommissioned by transaxle specialist Alex Jupe Motorsport costing £4,000. The result is a car that feels taut on the road and carries a long MOT to November 2024 with no advisories. 
There is scope to take the cosmetics to the next level. But we imagine that can wait because this is a car built to be driven and enjoyed.

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.

Anti-sniping

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.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

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.
