The Appeal

Based on the second generation of the Fiat C-platform, shared with the Alfa 156 and the 147, the GT offered svelte coupe styling penned by Bertone and was built at the Pomigliano plant in Italy, birthplace to the Alfasud in the early Seventies. 

The GT featured sophisticated double wishbone front suspension with MacPherson struts, parallel arms and reaction rods providing independent rear suspension for excellent handling. Three petrol engines in 1.8-litre, 2.0-litre and 3.2-litre capacity were offered, together with a 1.9-litre diesel. The model ran from 2003 to 2010 with some 80,832 vehicles produced.

This 2008 1.8-litre twin-spark model (named after the innovative two spark plug per cylinder layout) is finished in the classic Nero Carbonio paintwork which really suits the sinuous shape of the flowing bodywork. The metallic black paintwork formed part of the Black Line specification which also included satin silver mirror casings, unique 18-inch alloy wheels, aluminium cab detailing and red stitched seats. The current owner bought it due to its exceptional condition and low mileage.

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.
