Specially for the Veloce version there are sportier bumper, 18-inch alloy wheels, a diffuser and bi-xenon headlamps. Driver and front passenger more contoured sports seats ranked take inside. Aluminium decors and a steering wheel with an integrated start button provide motor sports atmosphere.
The prices for gasoline and diesel are almost 25,000 euros below the QV version. For the 280-HP Giulia customers must put 47,800 euro, for the 210-HP - diesel 46,800 euro are due.
