*Update*

Forget the original figures below, after further discussion with Alfa Romeo, I now have the full 166 UK Production Figures for all variants, including for the years 1998 & 1999, which were previously missing. :thumbs:

I have created a pdf with the details here, which you should be able to view using Acrobat Reader.

======================================================================

Finally, here are the official sales figures for Alfa Romeo 166s in the UK. Unfortunately, figures for 1999 are not available, ie. lost :rolleyes:, so this is for Y2K to end of production.

I am still trying to obtain a breakdown per year of production but, in the meantime, this makes interesting reading.

Total Production over this period was 1940 units.

Model Designation | Model Derivative | Total Production No.

100 | 166 2.0 TS TURISMO | 3

151 | 166 2.0 T SPARK | 357

152 | 166 2.0 T.SPARK 16V | 429

155 | 166 2.5 V6 | 138

156 | 166 2.5 V6 24V | 115

300 | 166 2.0 TS LUSSO | 113

303 | 166 3.2 V6 LUSSO | 44

305 | 166 3.0 V6 SPORTRONIC | 36

557 | 166 3.0 V6 24V SUPER | 153

558 | 166 3.0 V6 SUPER | 131

655 | 166 2.5 V6 SPORTRONIC | 123

657 | 166 3.0 V6 24V SPORTRONIC | 164

658 | 166 3.0 V6 SPORTRONIC | 134

So whilst the 166 is a rare car anyway, if you are a serious collector type, finding the 2.0 TS Turismo is your ultimate goal. With only 3 in production, maybe there isn't even one UK registered at all anymore!

Yes, it's a pity about the 1998 & 1999 figures but it seems that even Alfa don't have the information! No idea why they can't find out. I'm still trying to discover the reason!

100 | 166 2.0 TS TURISMO | 3..................16V 170CV cf4 progression FL2003.

151 | 166 2.0 T SPARK | 357....................16v cf2 progression

152 | 166 2.0 T.SPARK 16V | 429..............16v cf3 progression

155 | 166 2.5 V6 | 138............................24v cf2 progression

156 | 166 2.5 V6 24V | 115......................24v cf3 prog. FL2003

300 | 166 2.0 TS LUSSO | 113..................16v170cvcf4 distFL2003

303 | 166 3.2 V6 LUSSO | 44...................24v 225cvCF4 distFL2003

658 | 166 3.0 V6 SPORTRONIC | 134..........cf2 progression.

So Lacey is a 2001 CF2 658 version so 1 of 134 so not as rare as I first thought.


Just not sussed the difference between 100 and 151 yet.

100 is the facelift model.
151 is the original.
Distinctive and Progression i think are trim specs, i am positive i have seen it somewhere.

Yes, Distinctive and Progression are Lusso & Turismo trims. My car appears as a Distinctive on the German Alfa system.

God please bring back the L,GL,GXL and GT it was all so easy then.;) :D


So Tony If I am following this correct...Your Super is a Lusso:confused: :p :cheese:


As long as mine are going well they can call them what they want.

In the same period 1949 Alfa Romeos 166 were sold in The Netherlands (and 3,060 since introduction). Not bad considering NL is very small compared to the UK.
Wow sele nice graph....as the holder of an SCE (IIRC Scottish Certificate of Education) O grade in arithmetic I can see a trend in the graph...1999 and 2004 peak and then fall off.....I think the UK one will have 3 peaks...1999 2004 and 2008 when the Malasian ones appeared.

I now have sales figures per year for each version of 166, including for 1998 and 1999 :thumbs: I will update my original post shortly with the details.

Numbers per model and year. Good detective work. How about by colour as well! Also out of the 44 3.2's how many were TI spec i wonder, as these are after all the 166 'holy grail'. I was a bit surprised there were less (36) 3.0 sportronic facelifts than 3.2's as they come up for sale much more often, although this figure will be boosted by the malaysian ones. Seems you are as likely to see an 8C here in the uk as i think we get 41 of those....

If it was down to me accessing Alfa Romeo's computer system, I'd have that information, too :). Unfortunately, I don't think they will be willing to go to that level of detail. It has taken months of laborious communication to get this far!

Also out of the 44 3.2's how many were TI spec i wonder, as these are after all the 166 'holy grail'.
That's another anomaly in the figures. There is no distinction with the 3.2s and Ti versions :mad:

The Malaysian ones are not shown in the figures Alfa supplied, as they were not produced for the UK market and are effectively grey imports, sold through independants.
