There was a topic on another forum I visit relating to the 'How many left' website (https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk, so I just popped in the search phrase Lancia Beta and hit enter. Results are shown below. What really surprised me was that for virtually every variant, there were more cars 'on the books' sos to speak in 2021 than there were 10 years earlier in 2011. So quite a healthy situation it would appear.

People rescuing cars that were never on SORN I suppose.  Don't forget that DVLA has later Betas registered as just Lancia Coupe or Lancia HPE after the Beta name was dropped by Lancia.

My HPE won't be on that list as it's registered as just a Lancia.

I sent my V5C to DVLA many months ago to correct 2 errors and a change of colour
but no response so far.
The other error is in the VIN. It's starts 2LA instead of ZLA!

Yes, I realise that figures on web sites like that are highly speculative. It just seemed a pleasant surprise to see the numbers going up, not down! Stuartís point about Betas being rescued that were never on SORN makes sense. We've seen a few in recent months on this forum.

Do those figures include those on SORN?

THey don't but on the site you can click on them to get the details for SORN vs Taxed aver the last few years for each model. In general both the SORN and Taxed numbers are going up.

There are several hundred 1300, 1600 and 2000 Coupes on the road and SORNed. Even just LMC members own 200+.

There have also been a number of imports for sale in the UK which could contribute to an increase the numbers registered.
