Alfa Romeo 159 Spotted in Michigan

A European-spec Alfa Romeo 159 sedan was snapped by the guys over at Automobilemag travelling on the back of a truck on the I-94 highway in Michigan. Even though it has been said that Alfa Romeo is planning to return to the States in 2009 or 2011, your guess about what the car was doing in Michigan is as good as ours.

In any case, the particular model spied in Michigan was equipped with Alfa’s 150Hp 1.9 JTDm 16v turbo diesel engine. According to Alfa Romeo, the 159 1.9 JTDm is capable of going from 0 to 62mph (100 km/h) in 9.4 sec while featuring a combined fuel economy rating of 39.2 mpg.
