Vendor supplied images

Highlights

  • One of the last 3200GTs built 
  • Tasteful colour scheme in good condition 
  • Comprehensive Maserati and specialist service history 
  • Recent cambelt service, rear brake discs and rear tyres
  • 1,000 miles since last service work 
  • Long MOT to May 2025 with no advisories 

The Appeal 

The 3200GT was a serious return to form, a svelte Giugiaro-penned grand tourer with a 360bhp factory V8. This was a smoother, more comfortable and relaxed sports car than its national rivals, but one that was just as rewarding. 
These early cars incorporate some lovely detailing, like the ‘boomerang’ rear lights, that mark them out with enthusiasts. Finished in dark metallic blue with a blue and black leather cabin, this 3200GT Automatica (GTA) is one of the last built and one that has been obviously well maintained. 
That much is clear from the condition and the thick history file, in particular the service records which show attention throughout its life only by main dealers and renowned specialists. This work has been quite meticulous, covering routine and preventative work irrespective of the issue. A long, advisory-free MOT to May 2025 underlines this impression. 
The 3200GTA is one of Maserati’s best resolved cars. Good cars stand out in the market and this is one of them.

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.
