It is a Lusso, it says on the v5.Not if it's a '98 ... Lusso's didn't come in until the early 2000's with the Veloce and Turismo models.
'98 was just the base model or with three sportpack options ... didn't have names ... the SportPacks are the equiv of Veloces though.
I have just done a eper Vin check, all it tells ya is as follows:-Tell you what 156-v6 ... PM or email me you VIN number and I'll look it up on eper .. that should sort it out ... save all the arguing!
Here you go...
Thanks guys, The badges look good. At least i know where i can put them now and in the official Alfa place..The Lusso was a pack that you could just add on to the basic model on the early cars. Later on it became a model in its own right. Pea Seas pic shows the proper official position for the badge, although not many Lussos came with them for some reason.
