While I was out and about on a sunny Saturday afternoon – all too rare around here – I looked across the parking lot and saw this unusual car. Sitting calmly in a parking lot full of SUV’s, crossover SUV’s, midsize SUV’s, and the odd pickup, I could immediately make it out as an Alfa Romeo, but I knew I had to take a closer look. Take a look for yourself and see what you think.
There’s no arguing that this is a gorgeous car. I love how angular it is; the only real curves on it are around the grille, and the wheel arches. I suspect it’s been imported at some point, judging by the Italian plate on the front. Of course, it could be a vanity plate, a reproduction from someplace here. It has a manual transmission, and probably the 3.0-liter V6 engine. The headlights and bumpers look different than older models, which makes me think it’s a 1993 model. I’m not sure what the Q2 designates – two-wheel drive?
What else can we glean from this Italian machine? It’s certainly different from any other car I saw on Saturday.
