In the end this Giulietta Spider literally applied its name to its philosophy of life: Veloce (“fast”) and therefore destined for racing.
There are many cars like this which, since their release at the end of the 1950s, have been converted to racing, mainly by private drivers who considered them ideal for participating in races organized by the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America). Of course this also implies that many of these cars have been destroyed over the years.
This had precisely this competitive destiny even if, from what the seller writes, it started in 2008: it is not specified whether this car began its career in that year or in previous years. The engine is no longer the original one but a 1600 c.c. enhanced thanks to an increase in engine capacity and the use of pistons from a 1750. The seller also says that together with the car there are boxes containing specific car parts for the Giulietta Veloce and extra wheels. Find it for sale at $35,000 here in Washington, DC.

The Veloce register shows that the sister car exists (06980). Who knows what is in the boxes when it comes to checking if there is enough to put it back on the street?
