Hmm... was that for the Exige? My Certificate of Provenance and conversations with Andy Graham at Lotus says that my 2007 KG Elise was the last of only 6 KG's in 2007 to be produced and brought into the US before they discontinued the color. Dated May 30th, 2007. But maybe that was only regarding the Elise. What's the date that your car was signed from Production?

So why did they quit making this color? Other than 2 make your cars more rare?
