I'm well aware that there was such a thing as a "non veloce" spider. My point, which I didn't make very well, is that I'm not sure many, or any, were sold in the US. FWIW, I've never seen one.All series 4 Spiders are not Veloces... One quick way to tell is to look inside the trunk, at the carpeted door/panel that houses the jack. If it's a Veloce, it will have the Alfa emblem embossed on the panel carpet... (The badges on the back of the car will also say if is a Veloce, unless they have been removed.) Just FYI - all Spiders came with a boot cover.
