The Vespa is one of the most iconic scooters of all time. Loved by many generations and still available in the price list today, it is undoubtedly one of the symbols of Italy in the world.
The Vespa was born from Piaggio after World War II, when the Company was forbidden to resume the construction of aircraft due to restrictions imposed by the Allies. Wishing to introduce an economical, easy-to-use and widespread means of transport, Enrico Piaggio commissioned Engineer Corradino d'Ascanio to build a scooter. After several prototypes, the final version of the Vespa was conceived, the 98, which was immediately an overwhelming success.
Presented in 1969 as a more powerful version of the Sprint, the Veloce was distinguished by an engine with a third transfer, a compression ratio of 7.7:1 and a Dell carburetor 20/20. Despite being based on the Sprint's chassis, the Veloce was distinguished by its dedicated friezes and 130mm-round headlight. The top speed of 98 km/h made it one of the most exciting to drive Vespas of its time.
This model with original license plate and registration documents had 4 owners. It was restored in 2011 in Milan and has only covered 320 km since then. All proceeds from the sale will be donated to charity to the ANFFAS (Associazione Nazionale di Famiglie con Persone con Disabilità Intellettive e/o Relazionali / National Association of Families with Individuals affected by Intellective and/or Relational Disabilities)
