VIN etched into the glass on V6 Spider

I was looking at the letters/ numbers etched into the windscreen & door glass on my Blue Spider V6:

Windscreen is ZAR91600007001133 - the VIN Number, whilst the others are: ARB 07000111333

There are some stickers on the door glasses which I think relate to the Alfa Romeo UK Support number issued with new cars - this states a telephone number 07000111333

Is it just coincidence that the VIN & Tel Number are so similar? or by Design?

ePer lists the car as being manufactured 20th Dec 2000, which is very early for a RHD V6 Spider (It was not registered (as new) until Sep the following year)

Could Alfa Romeo UK have used my car for publicity? or even as a track press car? Does anyone on here have a VIN number on a V6 Spider earlier than mine?

I had one of the original pre release 'press' cars, registered 15-12-2000, ch no: 7000271.

These cars had ARD in the reg no', mine was X915 ARD & was featured in a CAR magazine road test Apr 2001...X916 ARD was another.

Yours wouldn't have been used until registered Sept 2001.
