Possible Alfa Romeo SUV Spotted?

Illustration for article titled Possible Alfa Romeo SUV Spotted?

We have a bit of a mystery on our hands here. A loyal reader sent over a bagful of shots he managed to grab of what appear to be some seriously camouflaged Fiats traipsing through what we have been led to believe is Peru. The two testers — a sedan and two SUV-type vehicles and although the sedan is somewhat easy to identify — it's got to be a Fiat Linea, a Linea test vehicle or a Fiat Grande Punto sedan — what it's doing in camo is hard to say. The SUV's the intriguing one. At first pass it looks like a Palio Adventure (for the South American market), though it appears to be riding slightly higher. Then we remembered the Alfa Romeo 4x4 mule spotted dolled up as a Fiat Palio. This comes on the heels of a mention of the Alfa SUV as part of the company's planned turn around. We may be stretching, but we're not sure why they'd cover up a Palio. Any thoughts? (Thanks to Alfonso).

But if it funds and development and restoration of the marque, ala Porsche and the dread Cayenne, why should we Alfisti resist it? Let Alfa sell a pick-up as long as it it tempered by their building small displacement sports cars. It's been almost 15 years since the we in the US have had Alfas to purchase; we are getting very very edgy (and tired of rebuilding the Spica)
