Yup. Someone has apparently taken it upon themselves to slather the slinkiest of Alfa Romeo models with the bright orange paint and stars and bars of the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard. Why? Because if you have enough cash to park an 8C Competizione in your expansive garage, you can paint it in whatever livery you damn well please. Details are scarce, but our source says the coupe is real, and it rocks the appropriate "01" numbering on each door. We're hoping there's a horn capable of whistling Dixie under the hood as well, and we'll award bonus points if the doors are welded shut and there's a cage inside.

We'd love to know who ordered up this particular color combination. Our source, John S., says this photo was clicked near Balocco in Northern Italy (presumably adjacent to Alfa's test track facility there), but for now, we'll just content ourselves by wondering how you say "Daisy Duke" in Italian.

      Is it bad that I think the orange one is the best looking out of the ones pictured?

        Coincidentally, the orange one is the only hardtop pictured.

      Looks like something Kim Dotcom would have ordered to get stuck in fields like he did with his Ferrari. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5ZBZV8hFb4

        I thought on cars, it says: "I am 40-something, and my parents let me watch as much TV as I wanted" on clothing, it says something entirely different.....

      It is most definitely a Photoshop. The front right fender/convertible top of next car is off a bit. There is also strange artifacts under the side mirror. Plus, there is no reflection of the mirror in the paintwork and the door handle shadow is a bit too bold and out of place. If I had to guess, someone colorized a white coupe.

        * It is most definitely a Photoshop. Nope, definitely not definite. * The front right fender/convertible top of next car is off a bit. Off how, exactly? * There is also strange artifacts under the side mirror. Presumably the orange car? That's a highlight. Unless you were talking about the neighbor to the left, then no, it's just the shape of the reflection. * Plus, there is no reflection of the mirror in the paintwork No, there is. Compare the reflections in the paint of its neighbors. * and the door handle shadow is a bit too bold No, it's not. * and out of place. No, it's in exactly the right place.

      I heard the Italian phrase for "Boss Hog" is "Silvio Burlusconi"

      fake. The car to its left looks completely wrong, calling the whole photo into question.

      Yeah, but does it have the "Dixie" horns?

      With the windows up, lets hope the doors aren't welded shut.

        If you had ordered one, you would be appreciative of the space they provided to prevent door dings. This is probably a private parking lot anyway.
