Comprehensive service history with recent maintenance
Comfortable and engaging driving experience
Only 60,790 miles from new
4.2L Ferrari V8 powerplant with 6-speed automatic transmission
When it comes to a Luxury Sports Sedan, the Maserati Quattroporte is an icon. The Modena-built car has been in production for six generations since 1963. Filled with luxury, with sleek and distinctly understated bodywork, the 5th generation rapidly became a keystone in Maserati's product range, and continues to be an impeccable contender for a modern classic.
This particular 2007 example is no exception. Its sleek black exterior and cream interior exude elegance and sophistication - and the car comes complete with plenty of service history. This highly engaging Italian motor is bound to get plenty of attention.

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.
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.
£0 to £9,999
£10,000 to £49,999
£50,000 to £99,999
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.
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.
