Hi pattbone,
I'm from France, 124 was also launch this week-end here.
I was too late for an Anniversary, the 25 units for France are all already sold.
So the mine will be black, brown seats, availbale only in september.

Do you know which country in EU get the special anniversary version and how much?
For France it was 25 cars.

Which number is Yours?

Finally some pictures of the Anniversary version..
Deliver to me on July 12th. Mine is number 57.
It rides like a Go-kart.. It's a pleasure to drive and makes everybody spins their head..
It never fells underpowered, you can climb steep hills still in the 6th gear. It's not noisy up to 70 mph (140km/h) i'd say.
The bose sound system is great and the speakers in the head rest makes you enjoy music and voice (phone) even at high speed. The exhaust it's never too loud but the sound is defenely a great one (it roars like a beast).
I particolari enjoy the shift, short and dumped lever (remember it's a rear wheel drive so the transmission is right underneath you right hand. That makes it necessarily to have some sort of dumping system, which works like a charm on this car, to avoid unpleasant vibrations on the stick shift).
Other than that.. I LOVE IT

Beautiful in red, nice with the 124 logo in the front
I though anniversary edition would have chrome mirrors.
I also test drive mine, and can confirm what you said about power/noise...
so, enjoy it during hot italian summer...

You're perfectly right, Oui-Oui, Anniversary edition does come with the 124 logo upfront and Chrome mirrors.
The mirrors are provided separately tough (at no cost) and have to be installed by the dealer before delivery.
Since I was in a hurry to get the beast going I decided to take it as it was and promised myself to get them changed
at the first available occasion.
I AM enjoying it!! Thanks and wish you the same!

Welcome Jbo, I assume that Italy itself had an allocation of Anniversary 124 Spiders? 124 of them perhaps?

I think the list for the Anniversary (Passione Red/black leather) is as follows (I have translated your Italian country names into English):

Switzerland 5
Germany 40
Austria 10
Portugal 10
Holland 10
Spain 20
France 24
Belgium 5 (most likely Benelux in this case means Belgium since Holland/Netherlands already has 10)

UK supposedly had 124 just for the UK, but based on previous "limited edition" marketing by Fiat, it might be less, or more!

And for the North American market Prima (Azzurro Italia Blue with Tobacco/Saddle leather)
US & Canada 124

I don't think any other markets have the "limited edition" cars?
