The minimum number of units sold to the public for homologation purposes is 200. It is believed that approximately 220 Twin Plenum cars were built. I owned one about 25 years ago and regret selling it.

Twin throttle bodies sit on the plenum chamber instead of one. 200 examples, the picture above being one of them.
