Great stats Delaney. Keep up the excellent work.

Missed out on APE registrations for Oct 10, Nov 10 and Dec 10, do know that 32 were registered according to your figures, any breakdowns for those three months?  :thumb:

    Per KaiK's querry

    I've just had a new PC installed this morning so i haven't had time to sort all my data out yet as i'm testing varrious applications but here for the true Statoholics amoung you:-
    I have got October figures at a high level currently.

    A500 & C        69      Sector A  this market is dow 49.5%    Oct 10 (9.6k units) over Oct 09 (19k units)
    AGP/APE           6     Sector B this market is down 37.6%    Oct 10 (45.7k units) over Oct 09 (37.6k units)

    Oct 10 Total    75

    I will do further analysis later.

    Above is my post for Oct 10 figures which shows the APE number (yes it was APE's only. The last AGP registered in the UK (as at 08/03/11) was a Black one registered Sept 10 HOWEVER THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT THAT WILL BE THE LAST ONE EVER!!)

    November 2010    15  APE's registered in UK
    December 2010    11  APE's registered in UK

    50% of the Nov Dec APE's registrations were White.

    Trust this deals with your enquiry.

    Hi Delany, did you get anywhere with your research as to how many 695's have entered the UK?

    I think I remember that 1,597 were being produced and would assume approx 10-20% would be for us.

    Thanks

    152 was the number I'd heard.  That's coming over in total, not necessarily the state of play right now.

    ^^^^^  What He said.

    That is no where near the number that will stay in the U.K. though, the RHD are desirable to other countries without Abarth dealers.

    The figure of 152 is correct BUT that was stated as the supply to the UK market and not total RHD supply but due to the way it has been delt with as commented above RHD cars are required for in Europe UK, IoM, Jersey, Guernsey along with Republic of Ireland, Malta and Cyprus. All of these islands have a very long and historic association with mainland UK speak English so i think you might understand what could be possible!! A number of these locations are shall we say tax havens so a very strong market for such products.
    Other major RHD markets Japan (there is an Abarth network here but supply and demand) the West Indies again a close association with UK, Australasia most of Southern Africa, India, Hong Kong.

    I might be able to comment a bit more in the future.

    So the chances of me ever seeing another blue one in the UK are pretty slim. Nearly as much chance as winning the lottery :thumb:

    It is pretty slim Hozepipe but the blue seems to be the least exported colour.
    The Hong Kong buyers wanted red or yellow.

    Right i can reveal that the Abarth 695's are classified as 'Previously used or registered abroad before first registration in UK' so do not show up in the new vehicle registrations.

    Here for your information are Audi R8 Registration details

    Full Year
    2009    408
    2010    443

    2 months 2011
    65

    So in fact the standard A500 with 63 registraions for Jan Feb 11 is more exclusive than the Audi R8. The 2011 figures so far for the R8 are up on 2010 13 & 6 = 19 2010  55 & 10 = 65 2011.

    Do i understand correctly that you have a Blue 695 on order?

    So APE registrations were good for February with 1 unit more than in January and i can let you know that despite March being the new '11' plate month in the first few days you only need the digits of one hand to count how many APE's have been registered. In fact February saw the number of UK registered APE's exceed 100 that has been 8 months for that to happen.

    Well add one from me, in the exclusive APE club as of this afternoon .... I can understand why they don't sell they are too expensive and there is a lot of very good and cheaper competition, I just like the way it looks.

    Looks great on the drive :)
