That's an East German number plate (probably a replica). Ixx = East Berlin.

1984-1988 Zastava 101 5-doors hatchback,1100 or 1300 cc.(same grille-front end of Fiat 128 CL,adopted years later rather than the original Turinese car)or 1983-1988 Zastava 128 4-doors saloon,always 1100 or 1300(with same body of Fiat 128 CL,and known in England--such quotes a my owned 1985 world car annual book--as Zastava Yugo 413=4-doors,1.3 lt.,while the 101 5-doors hatchbacks were simply Zastava Yugo 511-513=5-doors,1.1 or 1.3 lt.or Zastava Yugo 311-313=3-doors,1.1 or 1.3 lt. for Brits);meanwhile,in France were named,in late Eighties,Zastava 101 55--HP--that with 1.1.lt.engine and 101 65 that with 1.3 engine also these in 3 or 5-doors hatchback;strangely,the 3-door version of Zastava 101 will come later in the range and not before,as could be expected--the basic 101 for years was made with a unique 1.1 engine and the 1.3 was available only since end of Eighties,1978 circa,introduced on 101 L(=Luxe),distinguishable for squared headlamps,similar at that of 1974-1976 Fiat 128 Special)

PS These cars(but in '70s end edition,rounded headlamps still and a grille that recalls almost 1972-1976 Fiat 128 2nd series)were imported in Italy by a-day important wholesale private Importer(unofficial)in few units(recall,believe around 1983 or 1984 to have seen,parked into a street of my town, a Zastava 101,at which,probably the owner have removed original Zastava oblong logo on grille for put,meanwhile the 4-rhombus logo of Fiat,that this never have shown factory-made;apart that,unique seen with Italian plate,all others have seen or with Yugoslav,Belgian and Polish plates--this late,not YU-made,but just Polish-made,'cause had Zastava 1100p=Polski=Polish-model tag on back panel,for that believe was one of those few Zastava 101 made by FSO-Polski-Fiat in that Country in early years of production of that Yugoslav 5-door modified version of Fiat 128)

PS One of earlier Western-Europe Importers of Zastava 101 was the French Firm Chardonnet(Lancia-Autobianchi Importer already)that put on sale the car in France as Zastava 128(was shown at 1972 Paris M.S.,just the next year when the car was launched in Yugoslavia,1971),while the following 3-door version--known as Zastava 101 Mediteran at home--was called strangely Zastava 128 Coupè for French market;other earlier export names:Zastava 1100 in Belgium(was of that type the first I've seen"live"on the road in 1977),Zastava 101 ZLM(3-door,1.3)in England(imported by Zastava Cars(GB)Ltd.),Fiat 1100 Z(Imported by Deutsche-Fiat of Heilbronn,former Neckar-Fiat)in West-Germany('cause in GDR was Zastava 101);for some African markets(among which Egypt,where was built in 128 1st series body 4-doors version as El-Nasr=eagle--Nasr 128,later in 1988 switched at 128 CL 3rd series body,with dies bought by Zastava,but--that build the same as Zastava 128 Skala--not by Fiat and 1.3 engine,renamed El-Nasr 128 GLS)was also available later(around end of Eighties)with "tropicalized engine trim" that would features centrifugal-type air filter,among other modifications for be protect at hot climates in these tropical Countries.

And in Finland were imported by Autonovo OY(also original Fiats'Finnish Importer--knew that 101 were imported also in Finland,'cause they are quoted in an Italian motor magazine article that were shown at"Auto'73"Motor Show held in Helsinki,together at Seat 600 and 850 into same exhibition stand)

Never heard of Zastava 128 coupé for French market. Chardonnet started importing the 5 door an 5 door only Zastava 101 in France in 1973. This car was called "Zastava 1100 super". Chardonnet has already some problem with Fiat because of the Polski-Fiat and Fiat was not always happy by this army "communist Fiat" coming at discounted price...At that time, the confusion was strong, even Chardonnet played with that. On every advert was a big logo "Olio Fiat"!
The name 1100 was choose because of this target, the Simca 1100, which was the best seller on the French market in 1972

If I remember right Zastava 1100 was sold as a "Fiat 128 Z" in Finland by Autonovo and later by a different importer as a "Zastava 1100". It was a lot cheaper than Fiat 128 and offered a hatch but still it didn't sell well. Maybe 2000-3000 cars were sold and in year 2000 about 90 of these cars were still registered. Now it's below 30 cars. I know only one Zastava 1100 in my city. About Seat 600 and 850; these were never officially imported, I remember that a very little number of Seat 850 sedans were imported (less than five cars).

Apart that interpretation,I believe the Belgian-imported 101 were so named not after its displacement,but also for recall the car that they,in a certain way,will replace on market,the Fiat 1100 R(last series of glorious 1100 cars,1966-1969)

PS For the blog written by bref:will be correct to say into Zastava story that one of early Fiat cars made by Zastava in 1954 was the Z 1400 BJ,based on 1954 Fiat 1400A,CKD built,together with Zastava AR 51,Yugoslav version of 1951 Fiat Campagnola offroad,conceived for their Army,which 1901cc.engine--a grew-up-displacement of 1395 cc.fitted on 1400 BJ--was shared together at small Zastava Z 615 truck,clone of 1951 Fiat 615);Zastava Z 1300 comes some years later,1961.

same body of Fiat 128 CL,and known in England--such quotes a my owned 1985 world car annual book--as Zastava Yugo 413=4-doors,1.3 lt.,while the 101 5-doors hatchbacks were simply Zastava Yugo 511-513=5-doors,1.1 or 1.3 lt.or Zastava Yugo 311-313=3-doors,1.1 or 1.3 lt. for Brits


Little precisation:don't exist in England a Zastava Yugo 313,being 3-door 101 mated only with 1.1 engine on that market;but had forgotten that would exist in Britain a Zastava Yugo 411,i.e.,a Zastava 128 with 1116 cc.engine(1.3 lt.engines were mated at L=Luxe trim,e.g.413L,513L);and the Seventies'end Zastava 1100 ZLM(=Luxe Mediteran,not 101 ZLM as I said before)was only with 1.1 lt. engines
