Post Alfa Sei - unusual Alfa 6 variant
Sei seems like a US-renamed Alfa 6, but with 5 cylinder diesel.
Of course, the enthusiasts have a good web presence: http://www.movitcars.com/htm/alf6.htm

As noted in the the BaT article comments below, by "Will Owen" : (Perhaps he "will own" some good cars?)
it seems halfway between a 105 series and alfetta, but bigger than both.

"Aside from its registrability (is that a word?) here in SoCal, and the obvious benefits of high fuel mileage, the only really good reason to own this car is its drivetrain and underpinnings:
it’s the only DeDion Alfa with a front-mounted gearbox, and it has the five-speed. Somewhere I’ve got some sketches I made after seeing a sheet-metal tub someone in Tennessee had fabricated to go under a GTV whose own underwear had rotted beyond repair … and I thought, Wouldn’t it be swell to put my car’s DeDion under there, if only I could have the gearbox up front … well. this is how you’d do it."
