Where have all the Avanzato's gone.
A friend was asking me about my Zato the other day and how many there were. Out of curiosity I went on to "how many left" just to see. Apparently there are just 3 of the genuine UK cars left, 2 taxed and 1 Sorn which is guess is mine.
I knew there wouldn't be many but only 3?
Be careful with How Many Left, their numbers can be a bit fishy because they're subject to how the cars were originally registered - so only the ones that someone actually put down as a Cuore Avanzato on the paperwork will show up as that.
Others may be registered as just a Cuore, or, like mine, simply Daihatsu as the make, and no further detail given, which HML will call "missing".
There's a couple more under "Cuore" in the "500-749cc" band, those are likely to be Avanzatos too.
I expect the bulk of them are filed under just "missing", with no model details, and there's nearly 90 cars of suitable capacity lurking in there.
That would include any imports, though, so you can also consider when cars were first registered (not built) to try and thin things out, let's say 1997-1998 for a UK Avanzato. There's 11 unnamed Daihatsus on the books first registered in that period taxed, and 24 on SORN. I would say that any UK Avanzatos would be in that group, plus the aforementioned half a dozen.
I think if you could dig a layer down and find how many of those were in the right capacity band, you'd have a very accurate estimate of how many there are hanging about, but the website doesn't support that.
A carefully written request to the DVLA might get a close enough answer. Being able to filter the data down in different ways would let you work out a lot more than the website does.
1998 Daihatsu Cuore Avanzato TR-XX R4
1995 Suzuki Cappuccino (err... x2)
A fleet of non-kei cars...
How many left isnt be trusted, they go by the DVLA database which is useless! At one time there were 3 avanzatos in my little village and I owned two of them...
There are a fair amount of avanzatos to be honest, I see one for sale about every 2-3 months
just realised you are on about the L2 avanzato. there are only 3 known L2 avanzatos in the UK. chris's old one which hasnt been seen in about 2-3 years, mine and your old one which is save with one of its first owners and another random one that hasnt been since 2007
