Alfa Romeo Kamal SUV: Early Prototype Spied in Italy?
Remember Alfa Romeo's Kamal Concept SUV that was presented at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2003 supposedly previewing a production model that never came? Well, a worker from the Fiat Group's Elasis research center in Pomigliano d'Arco near Naples, reportedly bagged this prototype Alfa Romeo SUV at the firm's facility.
We're well aware of the fact that some may claim these pictures could be the work of a master photoshopper, but we checked the shots again and again and couldn't find anything out of the ordinary - even the Grande Punto headlights have the right shades on them. If you disagree, please enlighten us in the comments section below.
Now back to the prototype, if indeed real, our bet would go to an early test mule for a production version of the Kamal Concept that was initially pegged for launch sometime in 2010.
We don't know if Alfa Romeo kept to the plan - don't forget, the same company also announced a successor for the 169 executive sedan for 2009, but even if it did, the Fiat Group's recent tie-up with Chrysler has changed or at least, set everything back.
