|001 - 74999, Odd numbers||1947 - 1988: Odd numbers were used for the "street" cars|
|75000 - 195000+, All numbers||1988 - present: From s/n 75000 onwards, both odd and even numbers were used|
|00102 - 15604, Even numbers||1967 - 1980: Used for the Dino series (206 GT, 246 GT(S), 208/308 GT4)|
|01 - 300+, All numbers||1950 - present: For the Formula 1 cars (and in the early days also F2 and other F-series)|
|several ranges||Several other types (like 333 SP) have their own ranges|

It was also used on a small number of (late production) Dino 308 GT4s, which have s/n near 15xxx.
