8C Steering Wheel for Giulietta?

I've been thinking how cool an 8C steering wheel would look on a Giulietta. I don't like the standard Giulietta wheel which looks bulky and plasticky.

Does anyone know how much a genuine 8C steering wheel would cost and if it could be fitted on a Giulietta?

The Turismo has silver spokes and no controls on the spokes, but the sketches on the link on my post elsewhere shows a smaller rounder hub was proposed for the wheel.

There are some online shops that can be able to rewrap your steering wheel.

Since a Giulietta's original steering wheel is over 400, and the car costs 20k, I would imagine an 8C's steering wheel would be at least three times as much...

I would imagine the splines are also different.

Alfa 156 GTA

Can the Giulietta or 8C steering wheel be fitted to 156 GTA?

It's not so much the colour but the materials that bother me. So if the plastic black steering wheel inserts could be replaced with real aluminium or better yet carbon inserts, then that would be really cool and the rest of the original wheel would be OK. But I guess no one does this?
