To my knowledge, Alfa Romeo has never built an SUV designed specifically for off-roading. They’ve had a number of rally cars, sure, but one could only imagine a 4x4 wearing the Alfa badge and trekking through the dirt and mud. Until now… This is a look at an Alfa off-roader of the future. It was created by artist John Frye stemming from a simple sketch on an envelope— he calls it "Air Alfa," for obvious reasons. The concept mixes some cues from the Rally Fighter with a trophy truck, all coming together under a signature Alfa Romeo design language.

Each month, designers are challenged to illustrate a concept based on a combination of three terms selected at random. The most recent challenge is Alfa Romeo + Off-Road + I, Robot." "I combined the first two elements rather obviously. For the I,Robot movie design reference, I used the biomechanical muscle details from the robot's joints as the basis for an active control suspension chassis.” RELATED: The Alfa Romeo 4C is a Pure Sports Car
