Supposedly, Pasolini's already dead body was several times run over with his own 1974 Alfa Spyder Veloce 2000 by the teen before fleeing the crime scene. Evidently, the strange visitor from Teorema finally caught-up with Pasolini himself.
When I think of the Spyder Veloce, I prefer to flash upon the image of Dustin Hoffman and Katherine Ross fleeing down California Highway 1 in the early round-tail 1600.
