Just 133 examples of this 695 Biposto Record were built for worldwide distribution. Only available in exclusive ‘Modena Yellow’ and embellished with ‘Tar Cold Grey’ trims,. With enamelled ‘695 Record’ badge on the side and aluminium bonnet are all standard features.
The Interesting feature for howmanymade is the ‘Numbered Plaque’ on the lower console. A limited amount of cars were issued in each country. All with the said plaque giving their edition number.
The research I have done so far comes to these figures…
Now, these were only issued in certain countries. Apart from Australia they mainly reside around Europe;
Germany has 10 – all numbered from 101 to 111.
Switzerland was allocated 5 cars initially they were; 25, 26, 52, 68 & 90 – Now it appears their original quota has changed and it’s more like 20 cars… current editions residing in Switzerland are; 21, 25, 26, 52, 53, 63, 64, 68, 70, 74, 90, 92 (a 2018 car), 114, 120, 123, 129, and possibly 133! Now, these may be cars that simply haven’t sold in other European countries and have been moved to Switzerland, either way, they currently reside in this area. And of course, LHD cars roam from country to country.
Italy has numbers, 3, 4, 5, 14, 18, 80, 83, 96 & 100 among their quota… it’s possible that 50 cars are here.
Australia has 14 cars.
Spain was allocated 3 cars. The numbers are 34, 65 & 71
How many UK cars? Well, this is open to discussion due to possible registrations of some ‘export’ cars, also the confusing nature of how FCA (Fiat Group) do their registering of vehicles. Well, 39 ‘official’ cars have been registered. This can be the original sales anticipated amount, but some ‘UK cars’ can be sent to other RHD countries, meaning they are registered here first. It’s easier to import them this way from the UK to RHD countries rather than directly from Italy. Some can even be registered via Italy to the UK so they’re virtual ‘one-owner already, it’s a strange set-up but it’s how it is.
One of the RHD cars is in Indonesia and this is most likely from the UK car quota of ‘UK RHD cars’. But as of June 2020, I have 32 cars that were UK registered cars. The last 3 were in September 2018. One still has delivery mileage that sold in July 2020 with just 36 miles on it. This was one of two cars that were leftover from the original quota. Both cars went to the FCA owned dealership, Motorvogue in Kings Lynn, whilst one sold there another went to Portsmouth, the delivery mileage car is of those cars.
So from my research, which has included internet searching and visiting many a garage to get the cars numbers… Here’s the UK Numbers;
No 12* / No16 / No17 / No23 / No24 / No29 / No31 / No33 / No35 / No36 / No37 / No38 /No39 / No42 / No43 / No45 / No54 / No56 / No57 / No58 / No67 / No77 / No79 / No81 / No82 / No87 / No94 / No95 / No117 / No118 / No131
(* it’s believed this has been scrapped – UPDATE * Aug 21 – this is back alive again and back on the road)
Most of the cars were registered in 2015/2016, six of them being registered on the cut-off date of 31/12/2016… These have a ‘G**’ at the start of their number plates. Then there are four UK 2018 cars. Starting with No 54, this was first registered in February. It came from the North East then to London HQ, then finally selling in Hampshire. In the tale of No 79, this car had sat in the network for a few years, originally being in Haverfordwest before selling. Then No 67, this is now confirmed to be based in the South. And finally No 39, this being the lowest mileage car in the UK. These last 3 cars were all registered on 29/ September 2018. These are the last known UK registered cars… So as a final point, it’s been decided now in any advert for these cars “it’s one of 39 in the UK” – well I believe there are only 31 cars in the UK. When I toured the country visiting every dealership in 2016/2017 and asking about the cars they’d had or sold, the average figure they’d heard from FCA was 1 of 31 or 1 of 33/34 in the country.
Meaning that Yes, 39 were registered in the UK via the GOV site, that’s true… but I believe only 31 remained as UK cars in this country. The other 8 RHD cars filled the need of other RHD countries.
but the search continues…
