From what I can tell they were a 'Run out model' which is quite common in the car industry to shift the last few...

I think they are based on a Lusso spec 156, with added Metalic Stromboli grey paintwork, leather seats and sport wheels.

They're definitely not Veloce spec as by this age Veloce had rear parking sensors and cruise control as standard.

The 1.9 16v engine was standard, and i'm not sure about the suspension as they still ride high, and lean alot in bends. So if it is sport suspension then its rubbish...

Overall lovely cars though!!

It's better to burn out than fade away!
