I may be wrong but going by the overall size in relation to the passengers I'd say it's an Ardea,  the body behind the rear door is also longer on Aprilia.

Sorry to contradict you Brian, but I think it is an Aprilia because on the Ardea the semaphore is at more of an angle and the roof gutter line on an Ardea stops roughly in line with the bottom of the semaphore. On the Aprilia the semaphore is more vertical and the roof gutter line extends way beond the semaphore, as per this photo. See aditional photos below.

Ade,
 I bow to your greater knowledge and am happy to be corrected, I just compared two photos in 'La Lancia' although they were taken at different angles, and the back behind the pillar didn't seem long enough to me to be an Aprilia, mind I did say 'I may be wrong' !
