Certificate of Vehicle Provenance
 
2 Attachment(s)
went ahead and ordered my "Certificate of Vehicle Provenance" from the Lotus archives.

Interesting thing is that is list my car as 113 out of 285 Evora NA -eek-
for MY11 for USA market
I thought there were closer to 700 Evoras produced for MY11 in the USA?
This would make our cars much much more rare than I originally thought they were.:coolnana:
Lamborghini has already produced 1000 Aventadors and more than 10000 Gallardos.:p

That is very cool! How do you go about obtaining the Certificate of Vehicle Provenance? And where is the Lotus archives located?

Thank you.

I think it ran me about $65 US shipped
Kinda spendy, but I like it.:D

I believe there were about 75 MY11 Evora S versions shipped to the US. Very rare indeed.

Abe, can you confirm?

According to my Certificate of Vehicle Provenance for my 2011 Evora S from October 2011:

"Based on serial number sequence to date, your car is the 69th out of 74 Evora S models made for the USA."

Thanks. I need to get a certificate so I can find out my car's place in the series. :)

I've just ordered mine and it was 35.00. I should get it in the mail any day now.

Ron Avery 07-23-2012 07:51 PM

I just sent Andy an e-mail. I asked for both my Elise and Evora.

I just placed my order for this. I think it is a great document to have, and will also be good for re-sale value.

fasttoys 07-24-2012 04:23 PM

mine is on order :clap:

How did you pay in British $$? Don't they use Euro?

He said to call him with a credit card, tried but the number doesn't work on my phone.

I just dropped off both my certificate and letter today at a trophy place who will be mounting them both on a black plaque. Should take a week and about $50. My wife thinks I'm nuts (so what else is new) but I figure if you got them, you might as well display them.

ramtin1000 07-24-2012 07:43 PM

Just email them your credit card number in 2 different emails for security.

nate379 07-26-2012 05:28 PM

Oh, I don't need any paper, I just wanted the info emailed to me.

It will still cost ya. Paper is free. It's the info that will cost you.:sad:

I called Andy at Lotus the other day to order my cert. Another guy answered the phone (didn't catch his name). When I asked for Andy and explained what I wanted he laughed and said Andy was already "down in the archives" and "it's going to be quite some time". I think he's a bit overwhelmed by the sudden influx of cert requests due to this thread :D

As Chiro said, we're really paying for the labor of assembling the information.
