MV has produced quite a few (arguably too many) special editions of the F4 over the years, but one of the most interesting was the Veltro. It was offered in two flavors – Pista (race) or Strada (road). 23 of former were built, while there were 99 examples of the latter. The general consensus among F4 fans seems to be that these were some of the sportiest F4’s ever built. Here’s number 5 of 99.

To help it stand out, the Strada gets carbon fiber bodywork all over – the fairings, tail, mud guards, fenders, air ducts, airbox, and heat shield in a black and yellow livery. Stock power was 174 hp but MV included a titanium “race-only” exhaust that would yield an additional 11 horsepower. Veltro is Italian for greyhound, which is part of the reason why you see a silhouette of the dog on the fairings. A greyhound is also the mascot of Gruppo 23, a defense group of the Italian Air Force:

This example is said to be ‘as new’ with just 100 miles on the odometer. The sale includes the unused race exhaust, an additional fairing, and a matching MV Agusta helmet. Original MSRP was approximately $72,000 (though this model was not offered in the United States), so the seller’s looking for almost all of his money back on this one (assuming he’s the original owner, which is highly unlikely).
