On facebook a new limited edition poped up, or it seems like it.
Striking is the high number of examples made, almost 90 and yet no one saw this for sale. Reason for this might be that the badge is not clearly visible from the outside. Unknown is who hade this edition and how many examples in reality were made. Zender kit is probably added later. VIN number indicates a Phase 1b car, so does the rectangular climate controls, but the steering wheel is older. Unknown is what special features distinguish this edition.
As for now this edition will not be added to my findings, even though there are non-factory editions like Alfa Corse.

Alfa Romeo GTV and Spider Production Numbers
Following table is updated with my original research.
And so years: 1993, 1994, 2002, 2003 ad 2004 are different from those based on other sources and are most up-to-date.
Currently year 2001 is being researched as up to this point it was only done selectively in search of limited editions only.
Rest of the table is still based on current publications and therefore will be subjected to change when and if there are any differences in results.
With selective 2001 year and complete 2002-2004 years researched, I was able to compile limited editions numbers and phase 3 register so far.
last update: 4-02-2014
Total count: 41,992 GTV and 38,764 Spider produced.
Phase 3 total count: 4,705 units.
